ISIS is close to a territorial defeat in Iraq and Syria.
The Director of National intelligence Dan Coates stated that the terrorist group Islamic state still has thousands of fighters posing a serious threat in the middle East.
According to him, the jihadists, who for several years controlled parts of Syria and Iraq, and now – a small Syrian territory, and will use any relaxation of counter-terrorism pressure to “be reborn”.
“While ISIS is close to a territorial defeat in Iraq and Syria, the group returned to guerrilla war, continuing to plan attacks and to control his supporters around the world,” said Coates.
In 2014, ISIS proclaimed a “Caliphate”, which reached the size of the UK. To date, the ISIL terrorists have lost almost all the territory of their “Caliphate” in Iraq and Syria.
