Zamboanga mourns fallen soldiers in Marawi

ZAMBOANGA City Hall flies the Philippine flag at half-mast starting Tuesday, June 13, as the City Government mourns the fallen soldiers and civilians who died in the ongoing crisis in Marawi City.

Mayor Maria Isabelle Climaco-Salazar said the City Government of Zamboanga joins the nation in praying “for our heroes and innocent victims who perished, for the soldiers and the civilians who are still in the battlefield, and for peace and unity for the Philippines.”

So far, 58 soldiers were confirmed killed and 120 others were wounded in the Marawi City siege, which started when members of the Maute terror group attacked the city last May 23.

Thousands of residents fled Marawi due to sporadic gunfight between government troopers and Maute terrorists. The military has launched several airstrikes against the terror group, who torched several establishments and killed innocent civilians.
