Death toll on government side in Marawi City clashes continuously rises.
Last Wednesday at 6 pm, the figure was at 75.
But on Thursday night, the number of government troops killed by Maute group increased by seven, bringing the total death toll to 82.
The number of fatalities on the side of Maute remained the same at 303 from Wednesday night to Thursday night.
The latest figures were provided during the 'Mindanao Hour' press briefing in Davao City on Friday.
It has been 39 days since the Marawi siege started.
As early as 7 am today, two jet fighters of the Philippine Air Force launched airstrikes in four barangays still being controlled by the Maute terrorists.
The military has rescued 1,713 civilians.
The number of civilians killed stands at 44.
In evacuation centers in Iligan City, 28 have died due to various ailments such as kidney failure, stroke and pneumonia.
The Crisis Management Committee of Lanao del Sur is apprehensive about holding a mass burial.
Local officials are giving consideration to the fact that those who died were residents of Marawi City and since most were Muslims, there could be some religious practices that families of the dead would want to observe when the situation in their hometowns returns to normal.
