We categorically state that we have not bombed and will not bomb mosques in Marawi.

The AFP leadership is firm in its commitment to use other options that would flush out the Maute-ISIS Group from these places of worship that they have converted into machine gun and snipers’ nests, defensive positions, and arsenals of their war wherewithals.

The AFP assures our Muslim brothers and Islamic faithfuls that it will not go down to the level of these terrorists who desecrate places of worship to lure the government security forces into responding to their violent activities in a similar manner.
