«Islamic state of Iraq and Levant» | Every day | April 2013 – January 2016

Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant is a Salafi jihadist militant group that follows an Islamic fundamentalist, Wahhabi doctrine of Sunni Islam. The group is also known as Daesh, which is an acronym derived from its Arabic name ad-Dawlah al-Islāmiyah fī ‘l-ʿIrāq wa-sh-Shām.

The group has referred to itself as the Islamic State or IS since it proclaimed a worldwide caliphate in June 2014 and named Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi as its caliph. As a caliphate, it claims religious, political and military authority over all Muslims worldwide. The group’s adoption of the name “Islamic State” and idea of a caliphate have been widely criticised, with the United Nations, various governments, and mainstream Muslim groups rejecting its statehood or caliphhood. As of December 2015, the group has control over vast landlocked territory in Iraq and Syria, with a population estimate ranging between 2.8 million and 8 million people and where it enforces its interpretation of sharia law. ISIL affiliates control small areas of Libya, Nigeria and Afghanistan and operate in other parts of the world, including North Africa and South Asia. ISIL gained prominence, when in early 2014 it drove Iraqi government forces out of key cities in its Western Iraq offensive, followed by the capture of Mosul and the Sinjar massacre, almost causing a collapse of the Iraqi government and prompting a renewal of US military action in Iraq. In Syria, the group has conducted ground attacks on both government forces and rebel factions. The number of fighters the group commands in Iraq and Syria, was estimated by the CIA at 31,000, with foreign fighters accounting for around two thirds, while ISIL leaders claim 40,000 fighters, with the majority being Iraqi and Syrian nationals.

    People say "but Turkey doesn't fight ISIS" first of all look at who's saying this. The west made those ISIS soldiers and doesn't fight them. They " officialy " do but technically all they do is aiding these terrorists not directly but on a way and then making it harder for Arabia and Turks to defeat western soldiers. Al

    Revelation 9:13-19King James Version (KJV)

    13 And the sixth angel sounded, and I heard a voice from the four horns of the golden altar which is before God,

    14 Saying to the sixth angel which had the trumpet, Loose the four angels which are bound in the great river Euphrates.

    15 And the four angels were loosed, which were prepared for an hour, and a day, and a month, and a year, for to slay the third part of men.

    16 And the number of the army of the horsemen were two hundred thousand thousand: and I heard the number of them.

    My only critique was that you should have reflected the name changes that the Islamic State went through. It hasn't been ISIL since mid-2014.

    I'd love to see a successor video that shows border changes after January. Especially if IS is defeated quickly.

    The sad reality is that life is better in ISIS than it was in terrority controlled by Bashar al-Assad. He was the president who was corrupt, the civilians started protesting (note protesting, so it wasn't violent) and then he called in the ARMY and ordered them to start killing civilians. Soon the civilians started fighting back and getting weapons, then all hell broke loose and rebel groups started. More and more of Bashar's soldiers couldn't carry on murdering more innocent people so they went AWOL and joined the Syrian Free Army, a popular rebel group at the time made up of soldiers who had defected. People in ISIS see anti ISIS countries as threats because the honest truth is that ISIS is much better than Bashar al-Assad, who is still in power and has not been charged for any crimes.

    "Turkey is not anti-ISIS"
    Is that the reason why Turkey liberated Northern Syria from ISIS?
