MARAWI CITY, Philippines – In this city, 3 bridges separate the safe zone from the battle zone where troops are fighting local terror groups supporting the Islamic State (ISIS). It is said that the side that’s able to cross these bridges wins the war.
Carmela Fonbuena filed this report to explain the treacherous terrain in Marawi.
Most of the videos were shot when Rappler joined the Marines at the rear of the battle area last week, on July 22. Shots of the mortar position also followed restrictions imposed by the military.
