Muslim extremist groups have been fighting in the Southern Philippines for many years. Abu Sayyaf is the main group, but other groups have provided
support to them, both in terms of training, and in sending fighters.

True, their equipment is extremely dated. However, I read that their actual infantry training is ok. Or basically, I dont think they would get
humiliated the way the Saudi coalition is daily humiliated by the Yemeni armed forces and the Houthi rebels even with top notch gear sold to them by
Canada, USA, UK and others.
