In ISIS latest news, Philippines seem to be the latest new place for ISIS expansion and recruiting as footage of the terrorist group’s training camps in the island country has emerged for the first time ever.

In this new ISIS propaganda video, jihadi leaders urge Filipino people to travel to Syria and join their cause. However, it is then revealed that travel may not be necessary quite yet for Filipinos who wish to support the terrorist group as ‘soldiers of the caliphate’ are then shown training deep in the jungles of the Philippines.

A small group of recruits in the Philippines are shown completing various agility and assault course drills. All wearing black clothing and masks, the soldiers are made to climb robe ladders, crawl under barbed wire, and practice handling weapons. Click here to watch the video.

Until now, the Philippine government claimed that ISIS’ reach in the Philippines was limited to local bandits who have proclaimed their allegiance to the group. The ISIS latest news reveals, however, that ISIS may have more support in the Philippines than was previously thought, and may even be looking to establish more bases in the country.

Just last month, during an hour long battle in Palimbang, eight members of a criminal gang who pledged their allegiance to ISIS in a video that circulated last year, were killed during battle with the military. After the clash, five black flags were recovered from the bandits, similar to those used by ISIS’ fighters.

According to a Philippine national military spokesperson, Colonel Restituto Padilla, the group that the dead rebels were from is Ansar al-Khalifa. Padilla said “This group is trying to ride on the popularity of the ISIS, but they’re not really ISIS. We view them as mere criminal gangs.”
