Terrorist group “Islamic state” (IG, is prohibited in Russia) can restore its influence in Syria and Iraq: the international community, particularly the US, is not ready for new terrorist attacks. Such a prediction was made by the program Director of the geopolitics and non-state actors, Centre for global policy (Center for Global Policy) Hassan, Hassan (Hassan Hassan).
He noted that in recent months, ISIS has held a number of successful and large-scale attacks in the regions of Syria and Iraq. According to Hassan, if the group continues to be active, the international community will find it difficult to restrain her.
The situation is complicated by the “security vacuum” in Syria and Iraq, according to the expert, he arose from the actions of the US and Iran vying for influence in the region. Hassan stressed that the surge in militia activity is a concern because it happened only six months after the assassination of the leader of the group Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi.
On 27 October 2019 US President Donald trump announced the elimination of the leader of ISIS. According to him, in a special operation were also destroyed his henchmen, and a considerable number of militants. On the same day the US state Department announced for the head Salbi award in the amount of five million dollars.
