GIS Dossier: Islamic State
For the better part of a decade, Islamic State was enemy number one for the United States, its allies and other countries across the Middle East. While establishing a quasi-state across a huge section of Iraq and Syria, the group also conducted terrorist attacks all around the world. Though it has now lost its territory and leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, the organization could make a comeback. This GIS Dossier explores our experts’ analysis of the group’s origins and operations, and examines their scenarios for what moves it could make in the future.
