Well fought Filipino soldiers for taking back Marawi.

Looks like it has fully ended now, took a bit long, but still good that it has ended.

What irks me is how nearly every single reporter touts the line that the AFP (Philippines Military) "is used to jungle fighting not urban combat".

 

Even armies experienced in urban combat will be in a mess sometimes as such is the nature of urban combat isn't it?

 

What would be interesting to know - though we would probably never find out - is how much casualty can be attributed to fratricide in Marawi? They already say many times they were bombed by their own aircrafts, but it is just as easy for men shoot someone from their own side. Or injuring your own guys when you toss a grenade.

Was biking at Fort Bonifacio Army base yesterday. Met some soldiers there. They admit MOUT is something the Philippine military isn't good at.

Practicing MOUT is very hard without dedicated facilities. Practicing it properly even harder since MOUT involves a lot of demolition and material damage. When the Fortification, Mining and Sapping Training Facility is inaugurated, then maybe you might be considered good.

Two more Philippine Marine V-150 photos, first a 'wood-clad' we've seen before from another angle:

And here we have a clean V-150 rolling off a landing craft during an exercise:

It is a bloody mess. You slip on shell casings, trip or bang into stuff, you can't hear due to sounds all being amplified. If you toss a grenade it could hit something and bounce back. And if it is a night training, multiply the chaos by 10 because you can't see. And this is just training, with an imaginary enemy that doesn't shoot back.

According to the reports, even though there were many instances of Marawi Muslims protecting their Christian neighbours, and Muslims outright cursing the Islamic terrorists, there is no doubt that the majority of the fighters are Muslims from the region and even Marawi itself. So what the terrorists have succeeded in doing is encourage the government and military to be even more suppressing of the Muslims and the region, and thereby prolonging and enlarging the potential for continued insurgency.

MILF will not eradicate Abu Sayyaf. The latter are too useful to the Bangsamoro movement.

Two suicide bombers kill at least 6 (three of which were soldiers) and 12 injured at a military post in Indanan, Sulu. During the suicide attacks, the post was also attacked by mortar and sniper fire.
