The Philippine Army blamed Islamic militant suicide bombers behind the twin blasts in Jolo, Solo. The explosions killed at least 15 people and wounded more than 75 others in the deadliest attack since a double suicide bombing at a church in January 2019 left 20 people dead and wounded at least 100. Philippine Army commander Lieutenant General Cirilito Sobejana said the attacks represent an escalation of violence that may require martial law to be re-imposed to isolate and track down the Abu Sayyaf Group. Martial law was lifted at the end of last year in the Mindanao region. “The situation dictates, calls for it, with that recent incident with many casualties. It is wise to declare martial law again,” Sobjena said.
Q1. Do you agree with another declaration of martial law?
