ISIS Claims Mindanao, Philippines As Official Province
According to a new report released yesterday by the Christian charity Open Doors USA, ISIS has claimed the region of Mindanao, Philippines as a “wilayat” or official territory of ISIS.
A video released by the terror group “incites” fighters from Asia to travel to the island of Mindanao, instead of Iraq or Syria. The violent video also shows the execution of three men.
The report also states that “Islam is the second largest religion in the Philippines, after Catholicism.”
Open Doors USA is very concerned about this situation because of the Christian population in the region. Those Christians face “significant persecution” and violence especially in the Mindanao area.
