A video showing civilians caught in the middle of the raging battle between government soldiers and Abu terrorist is making the rounds online.
Residents of Napo, Inabanga Bohol have to improvise to stay out of the harms way by hiding behind coconut trees, buri palm trees and wooden houses.
The video was uploaded on the Facebook page “President Duterte Worldwide Supporters” to highlight the plight of our Boholano brothers and sisters who are under siege from the Abu Sayyaf terrorists.
In the video, scared civilians, mostly males, can be seen hiding behind the trees (coconuts and buri palm trees) as heavy gunfire crackled in the distance and helicopter gunship strafed a round of machine gun fire from above towards the Abu positions.
As of this writing, 14 casualties have been reported online, including 3 army soldiers and 1 policeman, a day after the battle started.
You may watch the video below showing residents of Inabanga Bohol hiding for dear life behind coconut trees.
