Proving to the world it is anything but irrelevant, ISIS in recent days reportedly mounted attacks in Chad, Nigeria, Afghanistan, Syria, Pakistan, Libya and Niger. Here’s a brief breakdown of the attacks:
In a series of attacks in Chad and Nigeria, ISIS’ arm in West Africa, Boko Haram, killed 118 people in five separate operations against military bases between November 15 and 21.
ISIS claimed responsibility for a suicide bombing that killed at least 55 people at a religious gathering in Afghanistan. Victims included religious scholars who were invited from all over the world to the event of the Ulema Council in Kabul.
Over two days in Syria, ISIS militants killed 47 U.S.-backed fighters from the Syrian Democratic Forces, a Kurdish-led alliance. The attacks occurred in the eastern province of Deir ez-Zor on the Iraqi border.
ISIS also took responsibility in Pakistan for a suicide attack in a crowded bazaar in Kalaya that killed 33 and injured more than double that amount.
ISIS killed at least nine security officials in the southeastern Libyan town of Tazerbo in an attack on a police station. Eleven other people, including civilians and a security chief were kidnapped by the group.
In Niger, Boko Haram (ISIS) terrorists killed eight people who were working for a French drilling company in Toumour. Boko Haram is also suspected of kidnapping 15 girls in a night raid in southeastern Niger.
