Fireballs exploded across Qanus Island in Iraq’s Salahuddin province, as plumes of smoke billowed up into the sky, a video posted on Twitter showed. Black-clad Iraqi counter-terrorism troops are seen watching over the operation from the ground.

In a letter addressed to PM Modi dated January 21, Rizvi said that if madrasas in the country are not shut down with immediate effect, then within the next 15 years half of the country’s Muslims will get influenced by Islamic State ideologies. “I write to you seeking the shut down of all madrasas in the country…because we have seen across the world that children are the first targets...

    A US-backed roup says that it has captured an Irish citizen fighting for Islamic State in Syria.

    A suspect in the Paris and Brussels terror attacks has been identified by Belgian police as having been among a group of ISIS extremists who burned a Jordanian pilot alive in a cage. Osama Krayem, a Swede of Syrian origin, has been held in Belgium since 2016 and could face war crimes charges over the murder of Maaz al-Kassasbeh, whose grisly death was filmed and put online in an incident that came to symbolise some of the worst excesses of ISIS. Krayem is suspected of playing a key role in the jihadist cell behind the attacks in Paris, which killed...

The terrorist appeared wearing all black and carrying a machine gun and was the one who ignited the fire using...

    ISIS propaganda chiefs have issued a chilling threat to bring death and destruction to New York’s subway. The terror group has vowed to attack Paris and the World Cup finals in Russia in recent weeks as part of a global campaign of lone wolf strikes as it continues to lose territory in the Middle East. In its latest warning, uploaded to militant Islamist messaging platforms, a man is pictured standing on the platform at New York’s High Street–Brooklyn Bridge Station with explosives and a timer behind him. The poster includes the threat: “You will not expect where we will attack.”...

    Iraqi pro-government fighters from the Popular Mobilization Units have found a mass grave in the country’s northern province of Nineveh containing the bodies of dozens of Christians believed to have been executed by Daesh Takfiri terrorists. An unnamed source from the Syriac Orthodox Church told Arabic-language al-Ghad Press news agency that the volunteer forces, commonly known by the Arabic name Hashd al-Sha’abi, unearthed the mass grave along with security troops in Halila region near the village of Badush, located some 15 kilometers northwest of Mosul.

    A former friend and classmate of Nikolas Cruz says he would follow her around, abuse his girlfriend and even talk about killing his friends' parents, adding to the shocking claims that have emerged about Cruz in the days since the Florida high school shooting. Ariana Lopez told ABC News on Tuesday she and her friends reported Cruz’s behavior to school officials multiple times between 2016 and 2017. Cruz was eventually expelled from Marjory Douglas Stoneman High School, where he shot and killed 17 last week. “He talked about killing our parents, our friends, boyfriends and girlfriends,” Lopez said. “He would...

Somewhere along an Eastbound off-ramp on I-80 and Hwy 183, a computer disc was found along with literature that appeared to be ISIS propaganda. “There’s a lot of vehicle traffic in that location,” said Captain Bob Anderson with Buffalo County Sheriff’s Office. The disc was found by a man Thursday afternoon sometime between 3 p.m. and 4:18 p.m. […] According to the Buffalo County Sheriff’s Office, the disc was logged into evidence and forwarded to the FBI. …

    U.S. military officials on Tuesday revealed that ISIS has lost 98 percent of the territory it once held, and since President Trump took office, half of its so-called “caliphate” has been captured. You can thank the Obama administration for that, says Marie Harf, now a political commentator for Fox News. Here she is on “The Five” to explain. Marie Harf: "The strategy that has led to a virtual defeat of ISIS in the caliphate…is largely a strategy that was laid out during the #Obama administration by military commanders." #TheFive https://t.co/2xXlJTjp08 pic.twitter.com/mr5DZMmCdL — Fox News (@FoxNews) December 27, 2017 So, is...

    There is nothing more characteristic of the Trump era, with its fire hose of misinformation, scandal and hyperbole, than that America and its allies recently managed to win a war that just two years ago consumed headlines and dominated political debate and helped Donald Trump himself get elected president — and somehow nobody seemed to notice. I mean the war against the Islamic State, whose expansion was the defining foreign policy calamity of Barack Obama’s second term, whose executions of Americans made the U.S.A. look impotent and whose utopian experiment drew volunteers drunk on world-historical ambitions and metaphysical dreams. Its...

  • Why Did the Islamic State Claim the Las Vegas Shooting? ("Converted to Islam months ago")

    The Atlantic ^ | October 2, 2017 | Graeme Wood, National correspondent
    This morning, the Islamic State’s semi-official news agency, Amaq, took credit for the Las Vegas massacre, which killed 58 and wounded another 515. The likely killer, identified by police as 64-year-old Stephen Paddock of Mesquite, Nevada, was not known to be a supporter of the Islamic State, or indeed a Muslim of any type. For now, the only evidence that the Islamic State was involved is its own assurance—first a press release announcing that a “soldier of the Islamic State” executed the concertgoers, and a follow-up for the baffled, explaining that he converted to Islam months ago. The FBI has...

    The Vatican has called an ISIS terrorist video from the Philippines threatening the life of the pope "worrying" and made vague statements about security being in ready to halt the potential attack. Secretary of State Cardinal Pietro Parolin, the Holy See's No. 2 official, said he has seen the video of militants desecrating Christian statues and threatening the pope by saying they'll come to Rome, as they tear in half photos of him and his predecessor, Pope Benedict XVI. The video was mostly filmed in the Philippines, where ISIS has been clashing with government forces for control of the city...

    The Islamic State’s (ISIL) leadership has called on its supporters in Europe to carry out attacks against Christian civilians. ISIL referred to the Christian civilians as “crusaders” and told its supporters via its social media wing that killing these people will benefit them during the month of Ramadan. The terrorist group encouraged its supporters to carry out attacks against Christian civilians using vehicles, guns, or knives. This is not the first time that the terrorist group has encouraged its supporters to carry out attacks during holidays; however, this has certainly raised security concerns in Europe, especially after the Manchester attack.
