Philippines: 12 Soldiers killed by Muslim terrorists of Abu Sayyaf

At least 12 soldiers from the Philippines have been killed during heavy fighting with Abu Sayyaf militants, the army have said.

It means Monday was the deadliest day for Philippine troops since President Rodrigo Duterte was elected in May.

Abu Sayyaf is one of the smallest and most violent jihadist groups in the southern Philippines.

Its name means “bearer of the sword” and it is notorious for kidnappings and attacking civilians and the army.

    Something tells me President Rodrigo Duterte is NOT going to take this attack sitting down, like odumphuk would.(or playing golf) Lets see some muslim heads roll!

    • I hope so. They need to pull a Sri Lanka, hem them in and shoot till they all stop moving.

    It must be Israel’s fault.

      It always is according to the anti-Semites.

    Allow Muslims to gain a foothold in any non Muslim country and this is the guaranteed result.

      There were Muslims in the Philippines before the conquistadors arrived. Outside these disputed areas in the south, Filipinos are more Catholic than the current pope and pork is a major part of their diet.

    I’m SO looking forward to the harrumphing and slamming of hands on desks at the UN after Duterte mops up this mess. I can hear the screams of Islamophobia and Genocide already.
