Nearly 700 individuals have been killed in the ongoing fight in Marawi City. Based on the latest figure of the Armed Forces of the Philippines (AFP), the highest number is on the side of the terrorists with 528; 122 on the side of the government and 45 civilians.

But despite this, AFP Public Affairs Office Chief Col. Edgard Arevalo noted that the soldiers’ morale remains high amid rising casualties on the part of government troops.

He added that AFP Chief of Staff Gen. Eduardo Año went to the battle ground in Marawi City to give inspiration to soldiers on the ground.

“He feels that the morale of our men remains high despite the growing number of casualties and wounded in their ranks,” Arevalo said.

According to Arevalo it was the chief of staff who became more inspired because of the dedication and focus shown by the troops.

“Our snipers remained in their positions; they did not even allow themselves the opportunity to glance at their chief of staff. Their eyes were focused on their scopes. their eyes were focused on their possible targets,” Arevalo added.

Gen. Año calls on his men on the battle ground to stay alive so they could meet again for a celebration when the chaos caused by the Isis-inspired Maute group in Mindanao finally ends. – Lea Ylagan | UNTV News and Rescue
