DAMASCUS, SYRIA (1:00 A.M.) – Disturbing photos emerged on Wednesday showing alleged forced conversions of Christian residents in the predominately Sunni city of Marawi in the southern Philippines, much like earlier ISIS procedures in Iraq.

Although around 90% of Marawi’s previous 200,000 civilians have fled, some people – including a few dozen Christians – have decided to stay behind in a mark of defiance to the Islamic State which overran most of the embattled city last week.

Meanwhile, most of the current heavy clashes are centered around the southern and western suburbs of the city with ISIS slowly conceding urban terrain in the face of overwhelming numbers, yet rather inexperienced army soldiers.

A military source in the Philippine Army said at least 89 ISIS militants had been killed since clashes began on May 22.

On the other hand, Amaq Agency said 7 government troops were killed on Wednesday alone amid a large-scale ambush on a convoy in Marawi, bringing the total Philippine Army death toll well above 100 since the insurgency erupted.

Nevertheless, the Philippine Army captured its first large batch of weapons amid raids on jihadist storage bases and ISIS forward positions across the southern suburbs of the city, now witnessing an ongoing counter-offensive by government forces:

JewSA will make sure every “rifle” captured by ISIS gets somehow transformed into a Toyota with 23 mm AA gun, therefore it imperative no more weapons are taken, so that there is no possible room for hasbara or “explanation” given to the people as to how ISIS came to power in Philipines a few years later from now thanks to a few rifles stolen from the Army

Except that the Zu-23-2 autocannon mounted on ‘technicals’ is Russian gear has NO western country uses 23 mm caliber. Abu Sayyaf is doing shit in the Philippines since 1991 and swore Ba-Yah to your brother Abu-Bakr al-Baghdadi in 2014 or 2015. IS came to power? ROFL! Abu Sayyaf is jungle guerilla! They assaulted a city after having been expelled from their main ungle stronghold a few months ago, they have zero experience in urban warfare and BTW, Abu Sayyaf manpower was estimated to 200-400. With already about a hundred dead and half of Filipino army rushing the city, Philippines are… Read more »

Now I wonder where they got all that high-quality arms and equipment? Couldn’t be CIA arms and Saudi money, could it? Same as Syria, Iraq, Nicaragua (Contras), Boko Haram (Nigeria), Jamaican drug gangs (to destabilise Michael Manley), Latin American Juntas and Death Squads etc.
The MSM keep shtumn about the truth, and instead dance to the Western propaganda; the blood spillt is on their hands, as well as the Western powers and their head-chopping proxies.

Who is Chris Tomson and what is the source of his news? It says here that he is a student? From Denmark? Did he verify his news? What are his sources? Honestly, comparing his news to the rest, especially on this one at Marawi is unbelievable. Where is ethics in presenting reliable news based on truth? Or is this truth based on his beliefs? Is this another propaganda to paint a favorable image of ISIS? Get your facts straight and show us your source. And the pics were taken since May 24? O come on!!!! That was the start of… Read more »
