Marawi City crisis started May 23.

On Monday, defense ministers from Indonesia, the Philippines and Malaysia launched a Trilateral Maritime Patrol, a joint patrol created to drive back any insurgencies in the region.

The governments of Indonesia, Malaysia, and the Philippines have agreed to strengthen maritime borders to anticipate the threats of piracy, abduction and terrorism.

TARAKAN, Indonesia (Reuters) - Warships from Indonesia, the Philippines and Malaysia held maneuvers on Monday in waters plagued by insurgency and banditry off north Borneo, launching coordinated patrols in a region where Islamic State influence is growing.

In terms of the future outlook for TMP beyond the launch, the general architecture has already been laid out, with a network of naval patrols and rotational air patrols supported by arrangements between the countries including on information-sharing and communications as well as three Maritime Command Centers (MCCs) in Tarakan, Tawau, and Bongao and a joint operations center.

The spectacular collapse in security in the southern Philippines has alarmed neighbors such as Indonesia and Malaysia.

Indonesian defence officers said that the centres will coordinate the joint patrols and share information, ensuring regional security.

This handout photograph taken and released by the Indonesian National Armed Forces on June 19, 2017 shows (front L to R) Indonesia's military chief Gatot Nurmantyo, Malaysia's armed forces chief Raja Mohamed Affandi, and Philippines' Chief of staff of the armed forces Eduardo Ano, (back L to R) Indonesia's minister of defence Ryamizard Ryacudu, Malaysia's minister of defence Hishammuddin Hussein, and Philippines' Secretary of National Defense Delfin Lorenzana, signing agreements for the "trilateral coordinated maritime patrol" in Tarakan, North Kalimantan.

That Indonesians, Malaysians and other foreigners are fighting alongside Maute militants in Marawi also reinforces the appeal of the southern Philippines to ISIS, which is eyeing territory for expansion beyond the Middle East.

Jakarta has deployed three Sukhoi fighter jets to prevent the militants from infiltrating Indonesia by sea, the head of the Tarakan air base told the state-run Antara news agency.

"We see these (command centers) functioning as a triangle, like a spider's web, where everything inside the triangle will be monitored", said military chief Nurmantyo. Tarakan is a port city just south of Borneo and facing the conflict-wracked island of Mindanao in the southern Philippines.

The Indonesian Navy has also been closely watching the Indonesia-Philippine sea border from its outpost, according to Col. Setiyo Widodo, now the commander at the Tahuna-Sangihe naval base in north Sulawesi.

Singapore and Brunei also attended the launch of patrols as observers.
