The extremist group has long held various parts of Iraq and Syria hostage. As US-coalition forces reclaim the territories, the group is forced to look elsewhere in the world, and target vulnerable, especially economically impoverished Muslim population. Mindanao, and nearby places such as Visayas and Luzon, fit the bill right. The region is plagued with conflict. The Philippines needs international support in this battle against extremist forces. Malaysia and Indonesia are joining hands. The three countries will launch joint patrols in waters off Mindanao this month to counter threats from Daesh. According to officials, the joint sea patrols in the waters bordering the three nations would begin on June 19, with air patrols starting at a later date. That's a good start. But more needs to be done to prevent the scourge from spreading in Southeast Asia, and soon.
