ISIS has released a group of reports describing the situation in the Philippines city of Marawi attacked by its militants on Tuesday.
According to the statements delivered by the ISIS-linked news agency Amaq, ISIS members captured the local jail and a police HQ as well as weapons and vehicles. Separately, the terrorist group has claimed that it freed 100 prisoners froom the captured jail.

Amaq also argues that some 70 servicemen of Philippines security forces were killed in clashes. However, this part is likely a common propaganda.
Defense chief Delfin Lorenzana said on Wednesday that only 3 government fighters were killed in clashes. According to media reports, some 12 troops were injured in clashes with terrorists.
