Philippine Army Captures Marawi Police Station

On Wednesday, the Armed Forces of the Philippines (AFP) captured the Police station building in Marawi city after heavy clashes with ISIS, according to Philippine sources. Inside the building the Philippine soldiers found the body of Senior Inspector Edwin Placido, the Marawi police deputy chief who was killed by ISIS after it captured the city on May 23.

Deputy commander of Joint Task force of the AFP, Colonel Romeo Brawner said that Marawi battle might be over before the end of August. Brawner said that ISIS fighters in the city are suffering from the lack of supplies.

“They are now running out of ammunition. They are running out of food, and this is clear in their response to our assault,“ Brawner said.

On August 22, the ISIS-linked news agency, Amaq claimed that ISIS fighters destroyed two armored vehicles of the AFP in Alaa district in Marawi city.

According to official reports, 583 ISIS fighters have been killed in Marawi so far, while the AFP has lost 129 soldiers. Moreover, the civilian death toll has risen up to 119 civilians over the last two weeks.
