ISIS-linked terrorists in the Philippines city of Marawi captured and tied up nine Christians, forced their hands behind their backs and bound them, then shot them to death and left them in an open field.
The Christians were traveling by truck when they were forced to the side of the road at a checkpoint.
After identifying as Christian, they were killed.
From the Daily Mail:
“Harrowing images show the group lying dead face-down in the grass, amid reports that villagers are afraid to move the bodies because terrorists are still in the area.
“One policeman was similarly caught at a checkpoint set up by the militants and beheaded on Wednesday, President Rodrigo Duterte said.
“It comes as 100 US-trained special forces aboard helicopters and armoured tanks battled to retake the besieged southern city from rampaging jihadis.”
In one recent clash, five soldiers and a police officer were killed, along with 13 gunmen.
Again, from the Daily Mail:
“‘We’re confronting maybe 30 to 40 remaining from the local terrorist group,’ said Jo-Ar Herrera, a spokesman for the military’s First Infantry Regiment.
“‘The military is conducting precise, surgical operations to flush them out … The situation is very fluid and movements are dynamic because we wanted to out-step and out-manoeuvre them,’ he said.
“An initial rampage by the gunmen, who have pledged allegiance to the Islamic State group, through the mainly Muslim city of Marawi on Tuesday prompted President Duterte to impose martial law across the southern third of the Philippines.”
