The war in Marawi has been going on for several months now. Many of our soldiers have risked their lives in order to protect our country from the Maute terrorists group that are trying to conquer our land.
Recently, the Armed Forces of the Philippines has declared the death of two of the leaders of the Maute group signalling that the war is almost over. How our brave soldiers managed to get this victory was told by a Netizen.
The Facebook page, Scout Ranger Books posted a short story for everyone to read.
The post state that the whole narrative was from codename “Destroyer”, commander of the 8th Scout Ranger Company, the group that killed Isnilon Hapilon and Omar Maute.
The story started when the group cordoned a group of terrorists. Little did they know that in the group, Hapilon and Maute were present.
The group was aware that the terrorists already have plans of escaping the place, that is why they were on guard for any sign of someone trying to escape.
At about 1:30 AM, a terrorist attempted to cross the road, the rangers were alert to shoot him. Another one was about to cross also, and the rangers managed to shoot him too.
At dawn, a few of the terrorists attempted to carry the dead bodies inside their hideout but, the rangers were very alert in firing their guns that the terrorists was not able to carry out their plan.
When morning came, the soldiers managed to get their hands on the dead bodies. A few minutes later, women hostages came clamoring that the ones they killed were Isnilon Hapilon at Omar Maute.
The soldiers screamed when they realized that their months of struggle against the terrorists is finally coming to an end.
The post instantly gained the attention of Netizens, causing it to be viral with almost 83,000 reactions. Everyone was glad that our country will be finally free from the deadly terrorists.
Here is the full post courtesy of Scout Ranger Books:
Mula kay “Destroyer,” ang commander ng 8th Scout Ranger Company na nakatama kina Isnilon Hapilon at Omar Maute, ito ang mga huling oras ng dalawang notorious na terorista: Alam ng Scout Rangers at ibang units na sumusuporta sa kanila na cordon na nila ang isang grupo ng terorista pero di nila alam na sina Hapilon ito. Alas siyete ng gabi, nag deploy ng 1 team ng Scout Rangers sa dulo ng kalsada, sa may likod ng block. Kasama nila ang isang armored vehicle na may thermal capability. Isa pang team nag deploy naman sa kabilang dulo ng kalsada na pwede rin nila takasan at ganun din, may armored vehicle din. Alam nila na mag attempt tatakas ang mga terorista kaya nag abang ng nag abang ang mga Rangers. Hanggang 1:30 ng madaling araw, may tumawid. E alerto ang Ranger, boom kunana. Tumba ang isang terorista. Di nila alam, si Omar Maute na pala yun. E may pasilip silip pa din, akmang tatawid. Boom kunana, galing naman sa secondary weapon ng armored vehicle. Tumba din. Di rin alam ng Rangers na yun na pala si Isnilon Hapilon. Madaling araw, inattempt ng mga kasama ng dalawang terorista na i recover ang mga katawan ng dalawang tumba na kasama nila. E nilamayan ng Rangers. Kada may lumapit, pitikan. Pagliwanag, mabilisan na plano, para kunin ang dalawang bangkay na naitumba nila. Sa isang napaka daring na move, na pang action movie mo lang makita, pinasok ng mga Rangers kasama ang armored vehicles at mabilis na nakuha ang dalawang bangkay. Maya maya, naglalabasan na mga babaeng hostages. Tinakbo nila at sinabi: “sir, sina Isnilon Hapilon at Omar Maute ang mga napatay niyo.” Hiyawan, sigawan lahat ng tropa! Di nila akalain na natumba na pala nila ang dalawang leader ng mga terorista. Diyan natapos ang kasamaan ni Hapilon at Maute. (Special request ni “Destroyer” na itong picture ng “Destroyer” building ang ilagay sa kuwento na ito. Very memorable sa 8SRC ito dahil nakuha nila nung July pa ito at a very heavy cost — halos nahati ang kumpanya nila sa dami ng wounded at namatayan pa sila. At siyempre, team effort ang pagkakuha kina Hapilon. Special recognition sa mga units na kasama ng 8SRC na nag cordon sa block na ikinamatayan nina Hapilon.)
