Philippine government forces have already killed 336 Maute terrorists as of 6 pm, July 2 in the ongoing Marawi City battle. 84 were killed in government’s side. These figures were provided by Presidential Spokesperson Ernesto Abella during the July 3 Mindanao Hour Press Briefing.
Abella also reiterated the government’s policy not to negotiate with terrorists.
“The AFP reiterates its call to all our civilians to practice the concept of shared responsibility in security by being vigilant, alert, and conscious of their immediate environs wherever they are and to report to authorities suspicious persons or items left unattended immediately,” he added.
During the said briefing, National Defense Secretary Delfin Lorenzana also announced that an inter-agency task force was created for Marawi City’s rehabilitation.
“I just got the Admin Order No. 3 creating an interagency task force for the recovery, reconstruction, and rehabilitation of the City of Marawi and other affected localities,” he said.
“So we are now preparing the rehabilitation plan. I was designated as the chairperson of this task force called the Task Force Bangon Marawi,” he added.
Rehabilitation will start as soon as the fighting stops in Marawi.
