Φιλιππίνες: Συνεχίζονται οι μάχες του στρατού με το Ισλαμικό Κράτος. Από ποια κράτη προέρχονται οι τζιχαντιστές

MARAWI CITY, PHILIPPINES - MAY 30: Filipino soldiers engage in a firefight with ISIS-linked militants, on May 30, 2017 in Marawi city, southern Philippines. Philippine government troops are battling their way as they inch towards the city center where ISIS-linked militants have been holed for nearly a week.  The fighting at Marawi city had forced around 85,000 people to seek refuge at evacuation centers in Marawi as the week long gun battles between ISIS-linked militants and security troops rose to around 100 with at least 19 civilians being killed in the fighting, according to local media. Filipino authorities announced around 2,000 people had been stranded amid street battles and air strikes while bodies of foreign Islamist militants were discovered during the ongoing battles in the southern city. President Rodrigo Duterte had declared 60 days of martial law in Mindanao on Tuesday after local terrorist groups Maute Group and Abu Sayyaf rampaged through Marawi city and said that martial law could be extended across the Philippines while thousands of residents continue to flee the crisis in Marawi, which is home to some 200,000 people.

Οκτώ ξένοι, εντοπίστηκαν μεταξύ των νεκρών των τζιχαντιστών μαχητών, στις μάχες που γίνονται στην πόλη Μαράουϊ, στα νότια των Φιλιππίνων.

Οι νεκροί αντάρτες που μάχονταν με ομάδες που υποστηρίζουν το Ισλαμικό Κράτος, προέρχονταν από την Ινδονησία, την Μαλαισία, την Σαουδική Αραβία, την Υεμένη, αλλά και την Τσετσενία, όπως δημοσιοποίησε το υπουργείο Άμυνας των Φιλιππίνων στην Μανίλα.

Οι μάχες βρίσκονται σε εξέλιξη από την προηγούμενη Τρίτη, ενώ οι τζιχαντιστές έχουν προχωρήσει σε εκτελέσεις αμάχων πολιτών, όπως έγινε γνωστό το Σαββατοκύριακο.

Εν τω μεταξύ τουλάχιστον δέκα στρατιώτες σκοτώθηκαν από φίλια πυρά, όταν στη διάρκεια αεροπορικού βομβαρδισμού στην πόλη Μαράουϊ, επλήγησαν στρατιωτικές δυνάμεις. Από τον βομβαρδισμό, τραυματίστηκαν άλλοι οκτώ στρατιώτες, σύμφωνα με στρατιωτικό εκπρόσωπο.
