Abu Sayyaf (Listeni/ˌɑːb/ /sɑːˌjɔːf/; Arabic: جماعة أبو سياف‎‎; Jamāʿat Abū Sayyāf, ASG; Filipino: Grupong Abu Sayyaf)[21] is a Jihadist terror group based in and around Jolo and Basilan islands in the southwestern part of the Philippines, where for more than four decades, Moro groups have been engaged in an insurgency for an independent province in the country. The group is considered violent,[22] and was responsible for the Philippines‘ worst terrorist attack, the bombing of Superferry 14 in 2004, which killed 116 people.[23] The name of the group is derived from the Arabic abu (Arabic: أبو‎‎) (“father of”), and sayyaf (Arabic: سيّاف‎‎) (“swordsmith”).[24] As of 2012, the group was estimated to have between 200 and 400 members,[25] down from 1,250 in 2000.[26] They use mostly improvised explosive devices, mortars, and automatic rifles.

Since its inception in 1991, the group has carried out bombings, kidnappings, assassinations, and extortion[27] in what they describe as their fight for an independent Islamic province in the Philippines.[28] They have also been involved in criminal activities, including kidnapping, rape, child sexual assault, forced marriage,[29] drive-by shootings, extortion, and drug trafficking,[30] and the goals of the group “appear to have alternated over time between criminal objectives and a more ideological intent”.[25]

The group has been designated as a terrorist group by the United Nations, Australia,[11] Canada,[12] Indonesia,[13] Malaysia,[14] the Philippines,[10] United Arab Emirates, the United Kingdom,[15] and the United States.[16][28] In 2002, fighting Abu Sayyaf became a mission of the American military’s Operation Enduring Freedom and part of the Global War on Terrorism.[31][32] Several hundred United States soldiers are also stationed in the area to mainly train local forces in counter terror and counter guerrilla operations, but, as a status of forces agreement and under Philippine law, they are not allowed to engage in direct combat.[32]

The group was founded by Abdurajik Abubakar Janjalani, and led after his death in 1998 by his younger brother Khadaffy Janjalani who was killed in 2007. On 23 July 2014, Abu Sayyaf leader Isnilon Totoni Hapilon swore an oath of loyalty to Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, the leader of ISIL.[6] In September 2014, the group began kidnapping people to ransom, in the name of ISIL.[33][34]

PUERTO PRINCESA, PALAWAN, PHILIPPINES – 2016/06/28: Palawan Tribe Boy with Python – The Palawano indigenous tribe, also known as the Palawan or the Pala’wan, are an ethnic group in Palawan in the Philippines. Palawanos have not been very assimilated into Filipino society and few speak Tagalog. Typically they keep to themselves in the mountains. Palawanos are vulnerable because they lack basic education even today. The Palawano diet is made up of cassava, rice, bananas, breadfruit, wild pig, fruit and freshwater fish.
