SINGAPORE – Forty members of the Philippine Army’s Special Operations Command were sent to Singapore for a two-week urban warfare training.
The training, which comes two months after the Philippines ended its five-month campaign against ISIS-linked fighters in Marawi City, is held from Dec 4 to 15, Army spokesperson Lt Col Ray Tiongson said.
In a separate Facebook post, Singapore defence minister Ng Eng Hen emphasised the need for ASEAN member states to work together to fight terrorism.
