[Jakarta, 5 March 2019] The impact of ISIS in the Philippines will be long-lasting, not only in terms of more violence but also in the appeal of a “pure” Islamic state as an alternative to perceived neglect and injustice.“The Jolo Bombing and the Legacy of ISIS in the Philippines”, the latest report from the Institute for Policy Analysis of Conflict (IPAC), looks at the 27 January 2019 Jolo bombing and what it reveals about the ongoing activities of pro-ISIS groups. It also underscores how critical it is for the new Bangsamoro Autonomous Region of Muslim Mindanao (BARMM) to succeed because failure could mean more recruits to violent extremist splinters.
