The ISF has launched a series of new operations against ISIS along the Iraqi-Syrian Border. The new operations are aimed at ensuring that ISIS militants escaping SDF jails in Syria cannot find refuge in Iraq.
The SDF is calling for increased security at Al-Hol Camp where some 70,000 people linked to ISIS are being held. These calls have gained urgency following a number of escape attempts, as well as a message by ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi urging the group's cells to help such attempts.
The Moroccan Counterterrorism Bureau has launched a pre-emptive operation against a cell of 13 ISIS militants. Since the emergence of extremist groups in the region, Morocco has instigated a number of security measures to counter their agenda.
An ISIS militant from Tunisia who was captured by the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) confirms that the militant organisations ideology and doctrine is full of contradictions. As a result of his findings, he decided to leave the group.
