Intense air strikes by the military using new FA-50 fighter jets hit several positions of the terrorist Abu Sayyaf and Maute groups in Butig, Lanao del Sur, killing at least 15 militants, Armed Forces Chief of Staff Gen. Eduardo Año said on Sunday.

Military officials are verifying a report that among those killed was an Indonesian terrorist identified as Mohisen.

Año said there are two other foreign terrorists who are with the Maute and the Abu Sayyaf rebels.

“We are still digging and doing more investigation as to his background,” he said of Mohisen, who was reportedly with Abu Sayyaf leader Isnilon Hapilon.

The AFP chief said these foreigners are not necessarily bomb experts since they may also have different roles such as religious advisers.
