There is a coordinate given here:
https://twitter.com/ANCALERTS/status/564990109913608193/photo/1
"GC 6798365714"

Assuming "6798365714" as Military Grid Reference System

I tried this online MGRS to WGS84 Converter:
http://www.legallandconverter.com/p50.html

using MGRS format -->  51N XH 67983 65714

where:
  51N is GZD (Grid Zone Designator) based on
http://www.legallandconverter.com/images/world-mgrs-grid.jpg

  XH is the "100-km Grid Square ID" from shp file of 51N on
http://earth-info.nga.mil/GandG/coordsys/grids/mgrs_1km_polygon_dloads.html#Downloading

Result:
WGS84 --> *Lat 6.92489  Long 124.52047*

This points to a familiar area on:
http://www.openstreetmap.org/?mlat=6.9249&mlon=124.5205#map=14/6.9249/124.5205

Could this be it?

There's a drone video by Raffy Tima described as
"an aerial view of the PNP-SAF extraction route towards waiting SAF
commandos on the highway more than a kilometer away."
I don't know if it's pointing to the same area:
