President Rodrigo Duterte personally visited the place where the twin blasts happened recently in Jolo, Sulu.
KAMI learned that the President even knelt and kissed the ground to honor the soldiers who passed away because of the bombing.
In a report by Inquirer (authored by Krissy Aguilar), President Duterte explained that he wanted to honor those who were killed “for no reason at all.”
“That’s why when I visited the blast, and thank you for sharing with me the gesture lumuhod ako, hinalikan ko yung semento to where my soldiers and the countless…at saka yung mga Tausug na walang, the lives snapped out for no reason at all,” he explained.
As reported by GMA News (authored by Julia Mari Ornedo and Peewee Bacuño), the President also delivered a speech in front of the troops.
President Duterte expressed his support in making sure that terrorists “will have no future” in the Philippines.
Al Jazeera reported that 14 people were killed by the twin bombings in Sulu. Two females were suspected as suicide bombers. One of them is an Indonesian, possibly the wife of the first-ever Filipino suicide bomber.
In 2019, President Duterte visited the Our Lady of Mt. Carmel Cathedral in Jolo, Sulu, where another twin bombings happened.
KAMI also reported that the brother of an Abu Sayyaf leader was caught on surveillance lurking around the cathedral moments before the explosions happened.
