The attack on Marawi City which started in May 23, 2017 resulted in five months of fighting between the government troops and the affiliated militants of the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant, including the Maute and Abu Sayyaf Salafi jihadist groups.
As the fighting involved aerial bombardment, this resulted in damages to critical infrastructure and displaced hundreds of thousands of people.
The fighting has left many of the critical infrastructure heavily damaged. The facilities and equipment of several barangay LGUs were totally damaged.
In some cases, LGU officials and employees were caught in the crossfire. The National Government, the ARMM Regional Government, the Province of Lanao del Sur and the City Government of Marawi would require technical assistance in recovery, reconstruction and rehabilitation.
