Terror Alert!

Continued fr om page 1 from According to a recent report by The Cipher Brief, a digital, security-based conversation platform that connects the private sector with the world`s leading security experts, although the Philippine military managed to suppress the rebellion in Marawi City, ISIS fighters fleeing Syria and Iraq continue to trickle into the country and pose a growing jihadist threat throughout Southeast Asia. “The U.S. and the Philippines have further bolstered their defense cooperation in light of these developments, yet the Philippines’ disparate geography, combined with the central government’s failure to provide key services to remote areas of the country, has permitted jihadists to mark the Philippines as a long-term launching pad for their operations across the region,” it said. It added that despite being ousted from Marawi, ISIS aims to regroup in Mindanao and has its amplified its force size in recent months as militants have arrived from Syria and Iraq. In addition, the country’s island geography has complicated Manila’s centralized authority, particularly over Mindanao, affording jihadist groups the opportunity to establish save havens in inadequately governed territory. It listed several issues and among them are the following: · In Mindanao, mounting tensions between the Catholic majority and Muslim minority, which comprises around 20 percent of the population, have generated religious strife

and enabled the rise of several insurgent groups who ascribe to Maoist or militant Islamist ideologies and who have grown increasingly bold in recent years. · ISIS fighters fleeing Syria and Iraq have targeted the Philippines as a potential next caliphate. Ebrahim Murad, the head of the Philippines’ main Muslim rebel group known as the Moro Islamic Liberation Front, which signed a peace treaty with Manila in 2014, claimed that ISIS fighters from Indonesia, Malaysia and the Middle East have entered the Philippines, and the group is planning to launch attacks against two cities in Mindanao. “Based on our own intelligence information, foreign fighters who were displaced from the Middle East continued to enter into our porous borders and may be planning to take two southern cities – Iligan and Cotabato,” Murad said. In the same report, The Cipher Brief also quoted Carol Rollie Flynn, former Associate Deputy Director of the National Counterterrorism Center, as saying: “ISIS fighters are fleeing to Mindanao because this region offers relative safe haven in its ungoverned areas. The population in parts of Mindanao, particularly the Moros, have for decades been hostile to the central government of the Philippines, which they perceive as inept, corrupt, and the reason for the region’s continuing poverty and poor governance. Given this attitude, segments of the Muslim population are loathed to cooperate with the Philippine authorities and military for whom they

have deep distrust.” Alasdair Gordon, former Australian senior national security officer, also said that there has been growing concern for some time that ISIS was hoping to establish a caliphate in Asia. And the southern Philippines is an obvious location. Extremist Islamic elements, including Jemaah Islamiya and its affiliates, have been present among the Muslim minority population in the area for some years. “It’s ungoverned and often remote environment make it ideal as a training and staging ground, as well as a place to undertake attacks. And long-standing maritime routes established by smugglers and pirates have previously been utilized by Jemaah Islamiyah and others to move groups amongst the southern Philippines, Indonesia and Malaysia,” he said. And for Professor Rohan Gunaratna, Head of the International Centre for Political Violence and Terrorism Research and S. Rajaratnam School of International Studies at Nanyang Technological University in Singapore, said: "The very presence of ISIS in Mindanao threatens not only the Philippines, but its neighbors. ISIS created its East Asia division with the intention of expanding from the Philippines to parts of Northeast and Southeast Asia. If ISIS spreads to Sabah in Malaysia and Eastern Indonesia, it will pose a significant challenge to Malaysia, Indonesia, Singapore and the entire region.” (Mindanao Examiner)

Jamiri, a native of Basilan province in the Muslim autonomous region in Mindanao, was also implicated in dozens of ransom kidnappings, including Australian international adventurer Warren Rodwell in 2011 in Ipil town in Zamboanga Sibugay province.

Road, in a four-minute shootout. A report by the Malaysian newspaper, The Star, quoting regional intelligences sources, said Jamiri was armed with a highpowered rifle when gunned down by the police in a firefight. Hazani said Jamiri’s group is suspected to be linked to a cross-border terrorist network that might be planning an attack on Sabah. He said they could also be linked to 10 people arrested recently by the Bukit Aman anti-terrorism unit for planning to carry out attacks in the eastern state. He said Tawau district police chief Assistant Com-

mander Fadil Marcus had also noted that the trio seemed to operate in a tactical manner before they were shot dead. Governor Mujiv Hataman, of the Muslim autonomous region in Mindanao, said Filipino authorities were still verifying whether the slain gunman was Jamiri. “We shall know the truth. I wish this report is true,” he told the regional newspaper Mindanao Examiner on Thursday. There was no immediate statement or confirmation from the Philippine military or the national police about the Jamiri’s killing. (Mindanao Examiner)

Mujiv Hataman Continued fr om page 1 from The 16 municipal government that will benefit from the projects are Parang, Buldon, Upi, Barira, Matanog, Pagalungan, Mamasapano, Datu Paglas, Rajah Buayan, Datu Abdullah Sangki, Shariff Aguak, Pandag, Ampatuan, General Salipada Pendatun, Talayan and Buluan. These municipalities are also recipients of the Seal of Good Local Governance Award (SGLG) from the Department of the Interior and Local Government, which is one of the qualifications

infra-projects could be entrusted to a beneficiary. Secretary Loong said local governments play an important role in the successful implementation of infra-projects, especially those that are experienced, equipped, with capacity to implement multimillionpeso projects, and are SGLG awardees. He said this is just one of the steps the ARMM government, through the DPWH, is taking to meet President Rodrigo Duterte’s target that all infra-projects for the year 2018 should be implemented efficiently.

The projects will start implementation as soon as all the pertinent documents are finalized and submitted. Governor Hataman urged the municipal governments and the two district engineering offices to ensure the efficient implementation of the projects. The governor believes these projects would be completed on time since one way to speed up project implementation and ensuring these are within standards is through a joint agreement with beneficiaries.

Measles claim lives of 2 kids in Zamboanga ZAMBOANGA CITY – Two children had died from measles in Zamboanga City in southern Philippines where health officials recently declared an outbreak of the disease with nearly 200 cases just this year. The victims, aged 2 years and three months, were all from the village of Tumaga and belonged to poor families. Village chieftain Jackie Lim confirmed the fatalities and said this came up during a mass antimeasles vaccination of children in Tumaga which started on February 19 and ends on March 23.

Health officials said many mothers had refused government immunization of their children following the rising fatalities of minors who were given anti-dengue vaccine called Dengvaxia across the country. The Department of Health and the local government launched the immunization drive with health workers go houseto-house in all 98 villages in an effort to vaccinate children with ages 6 months to 5 years old. Nearly 122,000 children are expected to benefit from the vaccination.

Health officials have repeatedly appealed and urged mothers to have their children vaccinated to protect them from measles which is a serious respiratory disease that causes rashes and fever, and is very contagious because it can easily spread through sneezing and coughing and direct contact with nasal or throat secretions. The City Health Office urged those with measles to avoid direct contact with other people to help prevent contamination. (Mindanao Examiner)

SULU – Four Abu Sayyaf militants, whose group has links with the Islamic State, have surrendered to the military in the southern Filipino province of Sulu, officials said.

Officials said Hajat Abbang, Kirah and Sansi Jawad and Jupakkal Usman also surrendered their weapons three rifles and a grenade launcher to the Marine Battalion Landing Team 1 under

Colonel Arnel Tolato. The militants were followers of notorious Abu Sayyaf leader Alhabsy Misaya who was killed by soldiers last year. Continue on page 5

Notre Dame Cotabato spearheads love drive for Marawi

COTABATO CITY – Some P96,000 have been raised by the Notre Dame University of Cotabato City in a love drive dubbed “Piso-Piso Campaign for Marawi” in an effort to help those who are in dire need, especially the victims of last year’s deadly siege. The one-hour campaign was conducted

recently by the faculty and staffs, including administrators and students. They also appealed to others to help in the campaign by donating to the victims of the war, many of who are still homeless. Militants linked to the Islamic State occupied Marawi City in Lanao del Sur province in May 2017 and battled security forces

for five months until their defeat. But the war brought devastation and deaths, and hunger with many homes and structures destroyed by the battle. President Rodrigo Duterte vowed to construct houses for war victims and rehabilitation of the city is on-going. (Amyrra Chielzy Rahmani)

MAGUINDANAO – The Department of Social Welfare and Development in the Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao (DSWD-ARMM) conducted its 4th round of assembly on social welfare protection, focusing on the implementation of the Pantawid Pamilyang Pilipino Program (4Ps), for the province of Maguindanao. The assembly was held at Camp Siongco in Datu Odin Sinsuat town on February 28. Lawyer Laisa Masuhud Alamia, ARMM Executive Secretary and concurrent regional DSWD Secretary, spearheaded the event and discussed the objectives of convening all municipal officials and other stakeholders involved in the implementation of 4Ps. She emphasized the “no fraud” policy implemented by the department; the importance of 4Ps; and the do’s and don’ts. The municipal officials and other stakeholders lauded Secretary Alamia on her firm stand in imposing the rules and regulations of the DPWH to lessen, if not totally eradicate, irregularities in 4Ps’ implementation.

It was made clear that officials, who would be caught involved in fraudulent activities, during and after the 4Ps pay-outs to the beneficiaries, would be ousted from their respective posts and could even face criminal charges. To reinforce this, The DSWD has already started coordinating with Smart Telecommunications Co. to setup the Infocast Messaging System. And once operational, it will enable 4Ps beneficiaries and others to send their concerns to DSWD-ARMM regarding 4Ps. The DSWD is also coordinating with other government agencies such as the National Bureau of Investigation, the Commission on Elections, the Philippine National Police, and the Armed Forces of the Philippines in counterchecking and evaluating the list of 4Ps members. Secretary Alamia likewise discussed the different variations of corruption in 4Ps implementation. Other than municipal officials, those at the Department of Education (DepEd) and Integrated Public Health Office could also be part of

corruption, she said. With this, the significant role of the Department of Health and DepEd in checking and monitoring ghost beneficiaries has been underscored by the secretary. “Naisip namin ang assembly to talk to you, to appeal to you. This serves as a warning. Magtulungan po tayo na ayusin ang problema na ito,” she said. Aside from the different law enforcement agencies, Secretary Alamia said they have also coordinated with the Darul Ifta or the local Islamic consultative body, to provide religious guidance. She said that helping the needy in the community is not just a responsibility as public servants, but also as Muslims. “The assembly is in accordance with Mindanao Martial Law Instruction Order No. 01 to monitor and check the local governments to ensure that the projects and programs of the government are properly implemented and delivered,” she added. Mindanao is under an extended martial law in an effort to fight terrorism and criminality. (Bureau of Public Information)

Ladio Bayoy was rushed to hospital by

army soldiers who, along with policemen, responded to the attack in Salvador village. Bayoy was with 5 watchmen when the attack occurred. At least 10 gunmen were involved in the shooting, according to a report lodged last week by the victims to the police.

The attackers fled after the shooting. The motive of the attack remains unknown and it was unclear whether the shooting was connected to politics or if communist New People’s Army rebels were behind it. (Mindanao Examiner)

Rear Admiral Rene Medina, commander of the Naval Forces Western Mindanao, said the militants are being interrogated by the military. He provided no

details of the interrogation, but urged other Abu Sayyaf members to surrender and promised them a new life. “I encourage all the other members of the Abu Sayyaf to surrender to the government and they will be given a chance to a new life,” he said. The Abu Sayyaf is still holding over a dozen hostages, mostly seafarers, whose ships had been hi-

jacked while sailing off the troubled region. Petinglay said some 182 militants had surrendered since last year in Sulu, Basilan and TawiTawi provinces, all in the Muslim autonomous region. The military provided them livelihood assistance and released them despite their involvements in ransom kidnappings, killings and terrorism. (Mindanao Examiner)

Ang Facebook nga kaniadto puno og mga warning sa pagsanta kuno sa mga tawhanong katungod ug mga bahad gikan sa mga hasler sa pamakak nga mga propagandista nga anti-Duterte tab-ang ug mingaw sama sa bakanteng mga kadalanan sa EDSA. Ang usa ka malaomon nga komplot sa laraw ningpalusot pa gyud pinaagi sa pag-ingon nga “itibo ang tanang numero sa gidaghanon sa ning-apil sa mga rali sa nagkalainlaing parte sa nasud ug ubay-ubay man sab seguro”.

Nasilo si Mayor Inday sa Speaker ug iyang gibatbat ang lima ka rason. Matud pa niya, nakaminos si Alvarez sa HnP tungod kay 1. Wala kini pagtugot gikan kang Pangulong Rodrigo Duterte, 2.

kabahin sa oposisyon. Ningnegar ang speaker nga iya ning gisulti apan iya gihapon nga giwawara ang bandera nga puti. Sa tinuod lang, ang HnP region ang pinakalig-on nga balwarte ni Pangulong Duterte pagdagan niya pagka Presidente. Ang Davao City nga maoy iyang teritoryo, ningdeliber og makabungog nga 98% sa tanang botante. Gisundan ni sa Davao del Norte 96%; Davao del Sur 95%; Davao Oriental 85% ug Compostela Valley 76%. Ang total nga mga botante mokabat og kapin sa tulo ka milyon, matud pa ni Mayor Inday nga naghatag og tamang kaugdang sa kontribusyon sa boto sa rehiyon sa paglunsad sa HnP. Wala itago ni Mayor ang iyang agenda. Kun ikadeliber nila ang maong gidaghanon sa mga boto nga maoy makapadaog sa usa ka kandidato pagka Presidente bisan og ang mga botante sakop sa nagkalainlaing partido, karon nga ilawom na sila sa landong sa HnP, karon nga nahiusa na sila sa HnP, ang mga kandidato sa nasyonal kinahanglan nga makiglambigit kanila. Tininuod ni nga politika ang nagasugod og lambo. Giesplikar ni Mayor Inday nga mao lang ni ang dalan nga angayng sundon. Ang Davao Region dako og potensyal nga mahimong usa ka sentro sa paglambo sa nasud. Apan ang mga programa ug proyekto sa kalamboan dili angay nga ikonsentrar lamang sa Davao City. Iyang gipakita nga ang tanang probinsya, siyudad ug lungsod sa rehiyon adunay produkto nga ikatampo sa paglambo sa pangkinatibuk-an sama

sa pagkaon, serbisyo, industriya ug mga kahigayonan. Kun bungkag, walay gibug-aton ang ilang demand sa Kongreso aron mahatagan sila og hustong bahin sa bahandi sa nasud. Kun lig-on nga nagkahiusa, walay magbabalaod sa nasud nga dili nila makahir. Giduslitan ug gitabang ni Mayor Inday ang genuine ug wa pa mahuman nga rebolusyon nga ang kalayo pwedeng mokatay ngadto sa ubang rehiyon nga solidong nagasuporta sa iyang amahan. Ang PDP-Laban nagtinga na nga partido nga ninglagsik lamang tungod sa emerhensiya nga giatubang sa nasud. Niining higayona usa ka bag-ong ideyolohiya ang ginahulma. Wala kini kalambigitan sa gidaghanon sa mga botante o bisan tatak sa partido politika, kundili sa dedikasyon sa nasud ug katawhang Pilipino. Milupad si Mayor Inday padulong sa Macau ug Hong Kong sa pagtapos sa semana aron pagtuman sa kasabotan nga mohatag og pakigpulong ug makighalubilo sa libo ka libo ka mga OFWs sa maong mga siyudad. Dinhay mga engrandeng selebrasyon niining duha ka nagkidlapkidlap nga mga espesyal nga rehiyon sa China. Mora og karnabal ang maong panagtapok sa OFWs. Dako kaayo ni og kalainan sa gisapot ug masuk-anon nga selebrasyon sa mini nga pag-alsa sa EDSA nga gisponsor sa mga kaparian ug oligarkiya ug gisuportahan og dako sa CIA. Ningpalyar ang EDSA samtang mihuros og kusog ang bag-ong rebolusyon nga nagagikan sa habagatan.

HEALTH: Matulog ng Mahimbing: Tips sa Pagtulog Payo ni Dr. Willie T. Ong MAHALAGA ang tulog sa ating katawan. Ang mga kabataan ay natutulog ng 8 hanggang 10 oras bawat gabi. Ngunit pag-abot natin ng edad 50 pataas ay mababawasan na ang tulog sa 6-7 oras bawat gabi. Ang mga edad 70 pataas ay minsan 4-5 oras lang kung matulog sa gabi. Heto ang mga tips para sa mga hirap makatulog: 1. Matulog ng parehong oras bawat gabi. Humiga sa kama ng may takdang oras, tulad ng alas 9 ng gabi. 2. Huwag mag-siesta. Kapag natulog ka sa hapon, hindi ka na aantukin sa gabi. 3. Mag-ehersisyo sa umaga o hapon. Kapag pagod ang ating katawan, mas madali makatulog sa gabi. 4. Huwag uminom ng kape o iced tea sa hapon o gabi. Ang mga ito ay may caffeine na nagpapagising sa atin. 5. Makinig ng konting musika. Mag-relax. Puwede din magpamasahe at maligo ng maligamgam na tubig. 6. Huwag gamitin ang alak na pampatulog. Ang

Dr. Willie T. Ong problema sa alak ay mapapaaga din ang gising mo sa umaga. At saka may hang-over ka pa. 7. May mga vitamins at supplements na puwede niyong subukan. Uminom ng Vitamin B complex. Nakapagpapagana ito sa pagkain at may tulong din sa pagtulog. 8. Baka makatulong ang Melatonin Supplements. Ayon kay Dr. Rebecca Castillo, ang melatonin capsules ay nakatutulong sa pagtulog at nagpapalakas ng ating immune system. 9. Kapag hindi epektibo ang Vitamin B complex o Melatonin para sa iyo, puwede magpareseta ng Sleeping Pills. Ngunit dapat ay paminsan-minsan lang

ang pag-inom ng Sleeping Pills dahil nakakasanay ito. 10. Kapag hindi talaga makatulog, humiga na lang sa kama. Kahit gising ka ay okay lang dahil nakakapahinga naman ang iyong katawan. Kapag humiga ka ng 2 oras, para ka na rin nakatulog ng 1 oras. 11. Ayon kay Pastor Norman Vincent Peale, kapag hindi siya makatulog ay pinagdarasal niya ang lahat ng kaniyang k a i b i g a n . Nagpapasalamat din siya sa mga biyayang natanggap sa buhay. Puwede natin siya tularan. 12. At siyempre, huwag kalimutan magdasal sa Diyos. Ipasa niyo ang lahat ng problema sa Kanya. Ang Diyos na ang bahala dito. Sa ganitong paraan, magiging mahimbing ang iyong pagtulog. Good luck po! Note: The advice in this forum is only for general knowledge.

Mactan airport sees more passengers from China, Mindanao

THE MACTAN INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT in Cebu is bracing for an influx of passengers from Mindanao in southern Philippines with the opening of a new passenger terminal this June. Avigael Maningo, a spokesperson for Cebu Airport Corporation that manages the facility, said they are targeting some 11.7 million passengers for this year - an increase of 1.8 million from the 2017 figure of 9.97 million passengers. The new terminal, constructed over a three-year

period, is 65,000 square meters wide or double the size of the old terminal. It will cater to 23 international airlines with destinations around the world, six of which are new - Air Juan, Juneyao Air, OK Air, Lucky Air and Pan Pacific Airlines. For the past two years, passenger traffic at Mactan has consistently increased, according to Maningo, who said that with the opening of Terminal 2, more passengers from provincial hubs such as Davao, Cagayan de Oro, Iloilo and Tagoloan are ex-

pected to increase traffic more. Maningo said China is the airport's target for inbound destinations with more flights from Beijing, Chongquing, Fuzhou, Kunming and Xian City in Shaanxi province. "We are looking to promote the Philippines to other untapped markets and this includes other provinces in China. We want to bring the high-spending Chinese market to the country," she said.

THE MONTH-LONG study on the proposed Leyte-Bohol and Leyte-Surigao bridge projects by the Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH), in cooperation with the Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA), has commenced. Southern Leyte District Engineer Maria Margarita Junia said the research will help determine proper measures to undertake before drafting the master plan of the mega bridge projects. The research team from JICA arrived

in Southern Leyte to start their study on the long span bridges. “We are going to work closely with JICA in the conduct of an ocular inspection in Guadalupe Village, Maasin City, and Benit Village, San Ricardo town. Benit Village has an existing port that serves as the region’s exit point to Mindanao while Guadalupe Village is the nearest point in Southern Leyte to Bohol Island,” she said. The project is part of the government's plan to connect

the islands of Leyte and Bohol as well as with Mindanao islands. JICA conducted similar initial studies in Iloilo, Negros, Cebu and Guimaras as sites of long bridge projects in Visayas. Through the years, JICA has been a development ally of the Philippines providing technical and financial assistance in infrastructure projects with the goal to sustain economic growth and promote human security.

CEBU CITY - The Cebu City government has begun the strict implementation of its policy on the “No Segregation, No Collection” of garbage which is also pursuant to Republic Act Number 9003 or the Ecological Solid Waste Management Act of 2010, and City Ordinance No. 2031, or the Solid Waste Segregation. Greggy Senados, of the Cebu City Public Information Office, said the city implemented the policy in its effort to speed up garbage collection in the metropolis.

Western Mindanao

Cebu City Mayor Tomas Osmeña earlier issued a memorandum directing all barangays and department heads to strictly enforce the solid waste policy starting March 1. According to Senados, the City Environment and Natural Resources Office (CENRO) also began its intensive information and education campaign on solid waste management in the different barangays. Maria Nida Cabrera, who heads CENRO, said that un-


segregated garbage would not be collected and those who are disposing mixed waste shall be penalized. “I urge everyone to cooperate and do their share in taking care of our environment by segregating their garbage at home,” Cabrera said. She said biodegradable wastes will be collected every Monday, Wednesday, Friday, and Saturday, while non-biodegradables will be collected on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Sundays. (Luel Galarpe)
