Muslims lend Christians hijab to escape ISIS in Philippines

Muslims are lending terrified Christians hijab veils to help them disguise themselves from ISIS terrorists as they try to escape their clutches.

This happened in the besieged city of Marawi in the Philippines where there are around 1,500 people trapped by the militants.

The head of the psychosocial therapy team, Dr Gioia Ancheta, said:

 “Some of the stories that stuck were Muslims helping protect Christian workers by letting them borrow a hijab.”

Marawi was stormed by militants around three weeks ago in an operation which left 290 people dad including 26 innocent civilians.
