Christian Militia In The Philippines Takes Up Arms Against ISIS
They call themselves the Red God’s Defenders and after forming in the Filipino mountains, they see themselves as the last line of defense against ISIS.
The terror group has been found to have created a training camp in the jungles in the south of the country and many Christians are fearful of attacks like the ones in Jakarta happening in their back yard.
While Filipino security forces are hard at work pushing back ISIS linked groups from making progress in their country, Red God’s Defenders are coming out in force to show the people in Central Mindanao that they are safe.
ISIS has also been pushing out videos urging people from the area to travel to Syria and join the fight.
Here are some photos of the group:
From the Daily Mail:
Members of a Christian group have taken up arms in a bid to stop the Philippines becoming the new breeding ground for ISIS.
The militia, who call themselves Red God’s Defenders, formed in the mountains in the restive south of the country where the terror group is taking a stranglehold.
Pictures show group burning the black flag of ISIS while fighters raise their weapons in celebration in a symbolic counter-offensive to the jihadist’s propaganda machine.
It comes less than a month after the jihadi group released its first video of a terror training camp in the Filipino jungle and a week after ISIS militants attacked Jakarta.
Will more Christians groups pop up to fight against ISIS? Sound off in the comments below!
