Islamic State Group Still Poses Serious Threat in Syria, Iraq, and Afghanistan, UN Experts Say

Recent reports from United Nations experts indicate that the group has managed to adapt to changing circumstances, exploiting regional instability, and employing new tactics to maintain its presence and influence in Syria, Iraq, and Afghanistan.

The terrorist group has re-emerged as a nimble and dangerous insurgency, capable of conducting hit-and-run attacks, suicide bombings, and guerrilla warfare.

UN experts highlight that ISIS has been able to capitalize on local grievances, exploiting the disillusionment and dissatisfaction present in these conflict-ridden regions.

The UN’s findings highlight that ISIS has effectively leveraged local dynamics, sectarian tensions, and tribal rivalries to further its objectives. By infiltrating communities, it seeks to manipulate and influence them to its advantage, thereby securing a foothold that could potentially lead to broader resurgence.

UN experts emphasize the Islamic State’s shift in tactics and propaganda strategies to maintain its global reach and relevance. While its online presence has been curtailed through concerted efforts by governments and tech companies, the group has adapted by resorting to encrypted communication platforms and smaller, more discreet online forums.
