Fearless 70-Year-Old Man Fights ISIS-Linked Terrorist In ‘Hand-To-Hand’ Combat

Recommended Posts

In a rare display of raw courage never heard nor seen anywhere in the war on terror, the 70-year-old man engaged the Abu Sayyaf terrorist intruding in his backyard in a hand-to-hand combat in the town of Calape at the height of a massive military operation against the militant Islamic group.

Lolo Peryong was cleaning his backyard in the afternoon of May 15 when Ubayda, armed with an M16 assault rifle, intruded the perimeter of his house in Barangay Lawis in the town of Calape some 45 kilometers north of this city.

While all his neighbors fled for their lives upon seeing Ubayda, Lolo Peryong, armed with a bolo, bravely attacked the bandit.

Not sensing he was facing a fearless old man, Ubayda was apparently caught by surprise, with Lolo Peryong already swinging his bolo at the terrorist.

For one reason or another, Ubayda did not use his M-16 rifle to shoot Lolo Peryong but was able to parry the old man’s non-stop bolo thrusts and hacking.

In one instance, Peryong saw an opening and tried to slash Ubayda, but the terrorist managed to parry and seize the bladed weapon from the old man. But the game old man still engaged the terrorist in a hand-to-hand combat.

Eventually, Ubayda stabbed Peryong, then butt stroke him with his rifle before pursuing army soldiers arrived and shot the terrorist dead.

Fortunately for Lolo Peryong, the wound was not fatal. He was brought to the hospital where he is recovering.

The bravery and gallantry of Lolo Peryong against a heavily armed terrorist despite his age was likely the first in the country or even the whole world.

I'm surprised they didn't arrest the old man and charge him with destruction of government property.
