Why it took 5 months to end Marawi siege
By: Allan Nawal - Correspondent / @inqmindanaoPhilippine Daily Inquirer / 07:02 AM October 22, 2017

HOME FROM MARAWI Hundreds of Philippine Marines arrive at Villamor Air Base in Pasay City on Saturday after months of fighting in Marawi City. RICHARD A. REYES


MARAWI CITY — Soldiers lacked training and equipment for urban warfare which stretched the military campaign to rid the city of Islamic State (IS) followers to five months, according to a key ground commander here.

Col. Romeo Brawner Jr., deputy commander of the military’s Joint Task Group Ranao, said officers had to improvise in terms of deploying troopers, equipment and using tactics to defeat members of homegrown terror groups Abu Sayyaf and Maute, who had tried to establish an IS base in this predominantly Muslim city.

The government had declared the liberation of the city from IS, although fighting continued to finish off what the military now refers to as “stragglers,” or remnants of Abu Sayyaf and Maute, still holed up in the city.


Brawner said that despite the shortcomings in equipment and training, improvisations had led to key accomplishments that included the killing of IS leaders — siblings Abdullah, Madie and Omar Maute and IS Southeast Asia “emir” Isnilon Hapilon of Abu Sayyaf.

900 terrorists dead

Terrorist casualty had reached 900 as of Saturday while the government lost 164 policemen and soldiers. At least 1,700 other government forces had been injured, mainly from improvised explosive devices and sniper fire.

“We have learned so many lessons here,” Brawner said. “We never had experience in urban warfare. We were trained on jungle warfare but we did our best,” he said.

A ground commander, who talked on condition of anonymity, said soldiers had expected to fight in forested areas but came to realize that they were to engage in close quarter battles in buildings and tunnels.

“We came to realize that our training was not appropriate,” the commander said.

“We were trained to fight in the jungle and in the mountains. Now here comes this situation where we had to take down enemies amid the maze of buildings dotting narrow streets,” the commander said.

He said that in the initial assault by government forces in an inner part of the city, he had ordered mortars fired but realized that these were not effective.


“We intended to surprise the enemies but we were the ones surprised in the end,” he said.

“The exploding mortar shells barely made a dent on buildings because these had been fortified. Hollow blocks were rarely used in construction of buildings here. Those were made of solid concrete,” the commander added as he pointed to a row of buildings that soldiers had retaken after more than three months of fighting since June.

Improvisation

“In the end, we did it but so much improvisation had been used. I just can’t say what these were,” the commander said.

Brawner said the lessons that the war in the city offered would be eventually part of the military’s training manual.

“We will have to amend our doctrine,” Brawner said. “We have to retrain our soldiers,” he said.

He said he saw urban warfare to be the battle of the future.

Despite the lack of equipment for urban warfare, Brawner said the military had done its job and was proud of it.

Soldiers, he said, “showed determination even with their limited capability to defeat the enemy.”

“We have shown that we were able to adjust,” he said.

Government forces, he added, had to make do with existing equipment. Transport planes for troop deployment, tanks and other weapons that had been products of previous modernization programs helped a lot, he said.

Impressive

Lack of transport planes, like C-130s, did not hinder troop deployment, according to Brawner. “We managed to move in as many battalions as we can,” he said. “Maute did not expect we could do it in so short a time,” he added.

Brawner said soldiers made the most out of equipment available to them even if these were not enough.

“Even armies of other countries were impressed because while we lacked equipment, we did the job,” he added.

The military, Brawner said, was also proud of its achievements in terms of dealing with civilians caught in the fighting. “It reinforced our sensitivity,” he said.

Soldiers, he said, had quickly adjusted to the culture of Maranaos.

In the early days of the fighting, the military deployed female soldiers to man checkpoints. Women took charge of inspecting female commuters or motorists as Islamic laws prohibited men from laying their hands on women unless they were married.

“And you saw that we did not commit human rights violations,” Brawner said.

Different martial law

“This martial law was very different in the sense that our soldiers really respected civilian rights,” he said. Complaints against soldiers, he added, were immediately acted upon.

Two nongovernment organizations, however, disagreed with Brawner’s narrative. Suara Bangsamoro and Tindeg Ranao said they were still calling for an investigation of rights abuses and an immediate lifting of martial law.

The groups said an independent body should probe the abuses committed during the war.

The government, said Jerome Aba of Suara Bangsamoro, “should be held responsible for the deaths and displacement of Marawi residents and the destruction of their communities.”

Tindeg Ranao said Maranaos continued to suffer in evacuation camps.

Brawner said accusations of human rights violations against soldiers had to be validated. The destruction of structures was part of war, he added.

“In general, I can say that we did a great job of protecting our country from terror here,” he said.

Soldier hurt as Army, cops press campaign vs NPA atrocities in Butuan City
By Erwin M. Mascariñas, News5 | InterAksyon (Text and Photos) | October 24, 2017, 10:23 PM

Butuan City – A soldier of the Philippine Army 23rd Infantry Battalion was wounded after an armed encounter with suspected members of the New People’s Army (NPA) Monday morning in one of the far-flung village here, as security forces intensified their watch after an NPA raid over the weekend.

“The encounter happened at around 7:20 in the morning of October 23, 2017 in Sitio Malanay, Barangay Nongnong, as a scout platoon of the 23IB pursued an armed band who burned heavy construction equipment worth PhP9 million – four back-hoes, a pay loader and a dump truck – at a nearby rock quarry at dawn Saturday.

“A 10-minute gun battle ensued between our soldiers and around 30 NPAs under Guerilla Front 4A of the North Central Mindanao Regional Committee. We believe that this group is headed by a certain Bong,” said Captain Regie Go, Civil Military Operation Officer (CMO) of the 402-Brigade based in Barangay Bancasi, Butuan City.

The wounded soldier was identified as Jesrell L. Amarelle who was shot on his right ankle.


Capt. Go added that they are still trying to verify whether there were NPA casualties, as operating soldiers on the ground claimed to have seen blood stains along their escape route.


Police Chief Inspector Renel E. Serrano, officer-in-charge of the public information office of Police Regional Office 13 (PRO13), disclosed that police personnel were also taking part in the pursuit operation.

“While the soldiers are operating in the forested terrain of the area, our law enforcers under the Regional Public Safety Battalion (RPSB) are conducting a parallel police operation in the vicinity. We intensified our operation after the NPA raid,” said Serrano.

The quarry permit is registered to lawyer Gil M. Cembrabo and operated by Ali Bani Martinez.

The NPA has yet to issue a statement regarding the incident.

'Marawi’ soldier killed at home in Zamboanga del Sur
BY THE MANILA TIMES ON OCTOBER 24, 2017

ZAMBOANGA CITY – Suspected communist rebels killed a government soldier – who just returned home after fighting local IS-inspired militants for five months in Marawi City – in a daring attack before dawn Tuesday in Pagadian City in the southern Filipino province of Zamboanga del Sur.

Advertisements
Police said Corporal Rhuphel Lihay-lihay was fatally shot while in the middle of a billiard game in Santa Maria village. The gunmen escaped on a motorcycle after repeatedly shooting the 39-year old infantryman.

Lihay-lihay was a member of the army’s 1st Infantry Division based in the province and recently arrived home from war. Police investigators recovered bullet shells, believed fired from .45-caliber pistol.

Police said it was still investigating the killing. No individual claimed responsibility for the attack, but suspicion fell heavily on the New People’s Army rebels who were actively operating in the Zamboanga Peninsula. The army did not release any statement on the killing of the soldier.

President Rodrigo Duterte suspended peace talks with the communist rebels after they refused to sign a ceasefire agreement, but communist leaders accused the tough-talking Filipino leader of reneging on his promise to free over 500 political detainees, mostly NPA leaders, jailed across the country.

The NPA has been fighting for many decades now for the establishment of a communist state in the Philippines. AL JACINTO

Australia to train PH in urban warfare
BY THE MANILA TIMES ON OCTOBER 24, 2017

CLARK: Australia will train Filipino soldiers in urban warfare to combat the spread of Islamic extremism after months of fierce fighting against militants in the southern Philippines, it was announced Tuesday.


Canberra has since September been helping Manila battle local supporters of the Islamic State group in the southern city of Marawi, deploying two AP-3C Orion aircraft for surveillance while helping in information-gathering and analysis.

Defense chiefs in the Philippines on Monday declared victory after a five-month battle that claimed more than 1,100 lives and destroyed large parts of the city.

While the victory ended immediate fears that the Islamic State would establish a Southeast Asian base in Marawi, concerns remain about its longer-term intentions and capabilities for the region.

Australia has experience tackling the group in Iraq and Syria and Defense Minister Marise Payne said it was crucial the Philippines had the expertise to keep extremists at bay now that the key fight had been won.

She said Canberra would immediately send teams composed of 80 troops to provide urban warfare counter-terrorism training at Philippine military bases.

“The practical training the Australian Defense Force will provide will ensure the Philippines defense force is better able to counter the brutal tactics being employed by terrorists,” she told reporters on the sidelines of a regional security meeting in Clark, a northern Philippine city.

“Globally we have seen the effect of extremist ideology and terrorist threats on millions of civilians and it is alarming to see this disruption come to our region.”

Payne said the spread of Islamic State-inspired terrorism was a direct threat to Australia and its interests, and Canberra was determined it “cannot establish a geographic foothold in the region.”

Philippine Defense Secretary Delfin Lorenzana welcomed Australia’s “invaluable support,” saying the military would use the assistance to replicate the training locally.

“While we need troops now to be trained on urban warfare, we also need to build our capacity to train our troops. Part of our program that we are going to do in the near future is to build our urban (warfare training) centers,” Lorenzana said.

The two sides will also work together to enhance intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance in the south.

They will also bolster maritime security engagement and bilateral maritime patrols and co-host a seminar on efforts to recover from conflict.

Hundreds of local and foreign gunmen who had pledged allegiance to IS rampaged through Marawi, the principal Islamic city in the mainly Catholic Philippines, on May 23.

They then took over parts of the city using civilians as human shields.

About 400,000 residents were displaced as near-daily air strikes and intense ground combat left large parts of the city in ruins. AFP
