Islamic State Advice on Attacks in “Enemy Abode”

November 12th 2017

ISIS Battle Position

As the Islamic State goes into rapid decline as an entity controlling territory in Iraq and Syria, the overwhelming majority of its propaganda output has become dedicated to coverage of military operations against its enemies. Alongside that shift has come increasing emphasis on the idea that the Islamic State will still live on its ‘soldiers’ conduct operations in the heart of enemy territory. The latest issue of the Islamic State’s al-Naba’ newsletter (issue 105) contains the following infographic on the matter. Of course, in seeking to conduct attacks in ‘enemy’ countries, many Islamic State supporters are undoubtedly seeking fame in what would otherwise have been an uneventful existence without supposed meaning to their lives. Yet the infographic warns against that sort of motivation.

Also notable in this infographic is the urge to inflict maximum damage at minimum cost. Much speculation exists as to how far the Islamic State finances attacks by its operatives in the West but self-funding by operatives seems to be the preferred means, such as through taking out loans under false pretences, or relying on proceeds of common criminal activity like drug-dealing and robbery.
