Security & Defense

National Defense Secretary Delfin Lorenza that seven foreign terrorists staying in Jolo, Sulu is a huge threat.

“It’s huge because, first, they can blow themselves up because we know that these people are not averse to blowing themselves up. Plus they can teach our local terrorists to make bombs,” Secretary Lorenzana told CNN Philippines’ The Source on July 29.

He said that they are working to contain the foreign terrorists in Jolo.

“We have a huge operation going on in Jolo to flush them out, to finally stop this Abu Sayyaf,” Lorenzana said. He added that they are eyeing to end the terror threat in Jolo in three months or until the end of the year.
