Give me context…Yesterday, Donald Trump announced the death of ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi (aka the world’s most wanted terrorist). Bravo!
What did he do?
In 2014, he declared himself leader of a “caliphate” (Islamic state) in Iraq and Syria. His reign used to control an area the size of the UK. But they lost all of this territory over the years.
What ISIS wants.
Baghdadi’s death is a major win but might not be the end of ISIS, specifically for 2 reasons:
- ISIS has established cells across multiple countries and has focused on online radicalization.
- The current conflict (Turkey vs the Kurds vs the US) that we already explained you.
