Countries ought to use their resources such as marshal capabilities and uphold international alliances to combat the increasing terrorist networks and prevent the development of new terror groups. For instance, countries should collaborate to evict the terrorist from their hiding places without having to protect them because this might create disagreements between countries leading to war.
Before attacking the terrorist in their locations, diplomatic methods should be used to arrest them without necessary using force. For instance, efforts should be put to stop their sources of their finances to make them non operational and make them surrender easily as their movements and means of communication can also be easily monitored. This includes making states, companies; individuals stop financing these groups or even freezing down the terrorist bank accounts to curb their activities through the use of political force and economic penalties. Use of military power/force should be the weapon of the last resort rather than the tool to fight terrorism always.
