Daily Mail UK, a newsworthy international media stated that the ISIS commanders were encouraging Filipino trainees to travel to Syria then exposed the terror camp in the Philippines.
A series of videos were released by the jihadi group yet Aquino’s administration seems to ignore the said propaganda. The videos also expose the recruits who pledges their allegiance to the ISIS.
Former President Benigno Aquino III said before that there is no imminent credible terrorist threat in the Philippines. “Is there a credible threat? Is there an identified threat? None. Is there a general threat? Yes. We are not immune to the problem of extremism,” said Aquino.
