Actually the title is pretty stupid since there is of course fighting going on despite a ceasefire signed in 2003. The MILF (Moro Islamic Liberation Front) – fighting the government of the Philippines for an independent Muslim Moro nation – of course claims the fighting was done by a renegade commander.

But now the MILF warns the government not to start an all-out-offensive or they’ll be ready again to fight.


Fighting between government troops and the Muslim guerilla movement MILF (Moro Islamic Liberation Front) started on the Philippines after the Muslim guerilla refused to leave land of Catholics. The group of Muslim guerilla is headed by a former MILF commander but he is not following orders from the MILF leadership anymore. The MILF is one of several Muslim guerillas on the Philippines. It fights for an independent Moro nation on the Philippines since the 1980s after it split from the MNLF which was formed in the 1960s.
