Philippines: jihadists force children to fight
Wednesday when an FA50 aircraft dropped bombs on terrorist lairs in the war-torn city.
Recovered high-powered firearms also grew, now at 451 or an additional of 25 firearms. Seized Maute Group firearms are placed at 461 and rescued civilians at 1,723.
The government is ready to start the early stage of rehabilitation of Marawi City primarily focusing on restoration of basic services such as electricity, water, sanitation, health and education, a military spokesman said on Monday.
The bomb was 250 meters off target. The two soldiers were hit by large debris of buildings that collapsed because of the explosion while the 11 injured troopers sustained shrapnel wounds.
A similar incident occurred on May 31, but the plane that was used was a SF260. A wounded soldier died on the way to a hospital, he said. Following an internal inquiry, the SF260 cleared for employment.
And speaking as a veteran pilot, the AFP spokesperson said accidentally hitting friendly troops is a combat aviator's worse nightmare.
"I am deeply saddened by the loss of lives resulting from this most unfortunate incident".
"But in the event ... they bear arms and are involved in the fighting, there is nothing much we can do ... similarly to the hostages who are being forced".
The Defense chief described the urban warfare in Marawi City as similar to the Middle East offensives in Mosul, Fallujah and Raqqa.
They then cited several biblical passages on love of God and neighbor before urging action in showing solidarity with those who have fled Marawi and those who have been taken hostage.
During the same press briefing, Presidential Communications Office Assistant Secretary Marie Banaag revealed that the number of terrorists killed in Marawi rose to 379 from 353.
"So suffice to say there was a bomb run or an airstrike that was conducted, one bomb not hitting the target, three others were proximate to the target and were efficiently employed, and except that one bomb, we would like to find out what caused it to fall short of target", Padilla added.
Part of the assessment is whether all persons included in two arrest orders issued by Lorenzana have been arrested. "We will make the Maute/ASG terrorists accountable in the destruction of Marawi and the countless crimes they committed against our Maranao brothers and sisters, and the whole Filipino nation", he added.
The prelates also wondered whether martial law across the southern part of the country would ensure the return of peace.
