Defense Secretary Delfin Lorenzana bribed the nationalities of foreign terrorists reported to have been embedded with local terror organizations in Western Mindanao.
The international militants are with Abu Sayyaf leader Sawadjaan, who was previously reported to be the ISIS emir in the Philippines, according to Lorenzana.
Western Mindanao Command (Wesmincom) commander Lieutenant General Cirilito Sobejana has verified that seven foreign terrorists are training members of local crime organizations in Sulu, Basilan, and Maguindanao.
Sobejana also said that 42 other foreigners suspected of being terrorists are on the watch list of the military and are being monitored. Meanwhile, Lorenzana was also questioned about reports that there are more or less 100 foreign terrorists in the nation.
Lorenzana admitted that reports were received by the military, but he noted that these suspected terrorists were not located.
