Look: ISIS militants enter Marawi City, turns city into new battleground between ISIS, government forces

As early as 2015, presidential candidate Duterte warned that the biggest threat that the Philippines will be facing is terrorism.

Months after assuming the presidency, Duterte reiterated his warning that the threat of terrorism from ISIS looms large in the horizon as the group plans to set up a caliphate in countries like Indonesia, Brunei and the Philippines. [ABS-CBN]

The Facebook post of Mohammad Manshawi today, May 23,2017 showing suspected ISIS militants brandishing their long firearms in the the streets of Marawi City while urging civilians to join jihad could be what Duterte has been telling us all along but no one bothered to take him seriously, until now.

According to Manshawi, firefights between ISIS militants and government forces broke out in separate barangays in Marawi City.

In the video below posted by Manshawi, one militant can be seen walking while addressing Marawi residents via a megaphone heralding the coming jihad. The militant was speaking in Maranao dialect. Shout out to our Maranao brothers and sisters who translated what the militant said in Tagalog for the benefit of the non-Maranao speaking netizens.

“Dumating na ang Jihad, Marami nang namatay na mga babae sa sa atin, hay alal jihad (come to jihad).”

In the video posted by another Marawi resident, burst of gun fires can be heard from a distance.

The post has been drawing different reactions from netizens on social media. Even our muslim brothers and sisters condemned the act of the militants.

Johara Aidah Ampuan wrote: “Hindi yan solutions sa mga problema mangdamay kayo ng mga innocent Muslims??? If 220 kaung Muslims please STOP! YA ALLAH HELP ALL THE MUSLIMS IN MARAWI CITY.”

Ismael Imam appealed to the militants not to bring havoc to the Maranao areas and urged them to go to the battle fields in Syria and Iraq: “Huwag man Nila craen ang lanao del sur, lugar ng mga maranao, at mga Maranao cla, Kung mga Isis cla dun cla pumunta sa Iraq at Syria at dun cla maki paglaban, ayaw natin ang gyra jn sa ingud tanu a ranao, kawawa so mga tunganai a mga pubre damay sa kabulsitan ng mga Isis nyan.”
