ISIS in the Philippines?

I missed morning news or the evening newscast. Yesterday, most FB posts were about Marawi City. The Martial Law in Mindanao. The ISIS waving their black flag in Marawi. It was a scary scene seeing those on YouTube and FB. And I believed this happened during President Duterte's visit to Russia. I can't believe this is happening in the Philippines. Please include my country in your prayers.

I read about this. Very scary indeed. There was a mini attack carried out by ISIS in my country 2 years back. Will play for your country

it is the Maute group that waves the ISIS flag, wanting to be recognized and acknowledged by the international terrorist group.

I have read this and making another short discussion about what I've read. Just now before heading to MyLot, I have learned about this courting stuff.

Some say they were the so-called "Maute group," and not primarily ISIS. We are being warned not to share misinformation in the social media. Let us pray for peace!

If you are in Luzon, need not worry because you are not affected. And since we are in Davao City, people here are very calm while we are under Martial Law. I saw a lot of critics coming from Luzon.
