ISIS Expands Its Reach

 Between the fall of ISIS’ eastern Syria holdout of Baghouz and last month, the group has claimed responsibility for 5,665 military operations — an average of eight per day — according to a widely followed terrorism expert who publishes on Twitter as “Mister__Q_”.

“It has for the time being gone to ground, but with the goals of maintaining its insurgency in Iraq and Syria and a global cyber-presence,” General Kenneth McKenzie, head of the US Central Command that oversees troops deployed in Afghanistan, Iraq and Syria, said last month.

At the same time, the group is “building and retaining a cellular structure which allows it to carry out terrorist attacks,” he said, AFP reported.
