Marawi Crisis was a recent conflict between Philippinesball and Maute Group who pledges allegiance to ISISball. It started when ISISball planned to take Marawi, a muslim populated city in Philippinesball, as their first stronghold in Southeast Asia. In doing so, they've killed and executed the officers of the PNP and took their equipment, burned down churches, and taking priests as hostages. President Duterte responded that he will take down ISISball and sent Philippinesball's military to complete their mission and securing Marawi. Originally supposed to be a quick mission, the operation had taken much longer than expected.
