MUSLIM rebels fired mortar bombs on a Philippines marine base in the southern island of Jolo, killing two soldiers and a child, military officials said on Saturday. Ten soldiers were wounded in the attack in Panamao town by the Moro National Liberation Front (MNLF) late yesterday, which triggered a gun battle with security forces that continued through the night, Major Eugene Batara said.HMMM... ARE THERE ZIONISTS OR NEOCONS OR BIG OIL MAGNATES IN JOLO!?!? NO!?! YOU MEAN THE JIHADISTS KILLED FILLIPINOS!? THEN WHY ARE THE MUSLIMS FIGHTING THERE?!? COULD IT BE... GLOBAL JIHAD!?!? YES.
The attack was led by MNLF commander Habier Malik who embarrassed the military in February when he held a general, a senior government official and their aides hostage for two nights. The hostages were released unharmed after the Government handed over money and food.
