A desperate suicide bomber dressed as a woman died after exploding outside a military camp in a raging area in southern Philippines, authorities said, adding no injuries or other deaths were reported.

Previous suicide attacks are extremely rare in the Philippines but since July 2018, four cases have been reported, including the most recent one on the Jolo island last Sunday.

Daesh militants have claimed responsibility for the three suicide attacks that experts say are increasingly alarming, following the escalation of extremist activities in the Philippines.

According to a military statement, the attacker yesterday looked a bit odd for wearing a robe and resembling a woman.

Authorities have not yet confirmed the actual sex of the bomber.

No group has emerged responsible so far a day after Daesh claimed to be involved in an explosion at a market in Mindanao, injuring eight visitors.

The separatist group in a predominantly Christian nation has long launched a revolt that claimed thousands of lives.

This week’s attacks have been a bit of a hindrance to peace efforts in the region.

The largest Islamic separatist group, the Moro Islamic Liberation Front (MILF), has started firing since Saturday.

As the MILF reached peace with the government, another group, the Abu Sayyaf, continued to attack.
