The tough and brave president of the Philippines has ordered the Armed Forces of the Philippines (AFP) to eliminate the bandit's group Abu Sayyaf (ASG).

Duterte to AFP: 'Destroy them (Abu Sayyaf), that's an order

During his speech in Zamboanga del Sur on Wednesday afternoon, Duterte said, "Destroy them, that's an order."

The president wants to destroy the small but dangerous militant group 'Abu Sayyaf,' because if not, the Philippines risked being "contaminated" by Islamic State.

Duterte described Abu Sayyaf as terrorists and bandits who kill civilians for no apparent reason and ruled out negotiations.

"I see a looming problem, in three to seven years from now, we will have a problem with ISIS," Duterte said.

President Duterte said he planned to recruit 20,000 more soldiers to help protect the country's territorial integrity.

"We want to control all areas and we don't want to lose any territory," he said.

The Abu Sayyaf are holding several foreign hostages, from Norway, the Netherlands and Malaysia.
