Filipino Civil War is an armed conflict between the Philippine government and Alliance to Restore Duterte (ARD), an alliance of pro-Duterte paramilitary groups that seeks to reinstate the deposed president Duterte. This is the first civil war that occurred in the country.
Duterte and Marcos vs. Opposition
Rodrigo Duterte, a populist mayor from Davao City wins the elections. He initiated reforms on the government but despite these reforms, some people still hate him because of his "war on drugs". Even the UN warned him because of his anti-drug campaign. After six months, the death toll rose to 6,200.
Beginning of the Civil War
After 2 weeks of tensions, the civil war came to reality when DA forces attacked Camp Panacan in Davao City. With overwhelming numbers, the DA captured the base and seized the firearms stored there. The surviving soldiers are taken prisoners. Leni Robredo, the person who succeeded Duterte promised to stop the rebellion. The DA launch attacks across the country targeting government buildings and headquarters of opposition parties. These parties opposed Duterte's extrajudicial kilings during the Drug War.
