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.

In his reign, women were sexually enslaved and the group inspired or was responsible for multiple terror attacks–California, France, Nice…

What ISIS wants. 

To found a hard-line Sunni Islamic state in their Syrian and Iraqi holdings (in practice, this means a bossy extremist regime that follows Islamic rules).

What now?

Baghdadi’s death is a major win but might not be the end of ISIS, specifically for 2 reasons:

  1. ISIS has established cells across multiple countries and has focused on online radicalization.
  2. The current conflict (Turkey vs the Kurds vs the US) that we already explained you.
