1) Abou Hassan al-Hashem, who was newly chosen as the leader of ISIS, is expected to instruct increasing terrorist attacks and take advantage of everyone’s preoccupation with the RussianUkrainian war, according to Security expert Seif Raad. He belongs to the generation that was taught by the former leader of the terrorist organization, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi.


2) Russian officials have announced hasty recruitment of 16,000 ex-ISIS fighters to be used against Ukrainian civilians, said Ukraine president’s office head Mikhail Podolyak. It was “verified that Islamic State members actively buy false passports of Russia, Kyrgyzstan and Kazakhstan to leave Syria.


3) ISIS praises Ukraine war as ‘crusaders against crusaders’ and says it hopes it will destroy ‘enemies of Islam’. ISIS added the invasion was ‘not surprising’, saying it was ‘the state of the escalating competition between America and Russia to control the countries of Eastern Europe, especially after the policy of “support and containment” that America pursued’. The Jihadists said Muslims should not take sides in the war.


4) Central Asia, in particular Tajikistan and Kyrgyzstan, is set to be destabilised in the next four to six weeks with possible Taliban military moves and the infiltration of Islamic State (ISIS) and AlQaeda militants, according to Sources close to military intelligence in a Central Asian nation, a US think tank said. “They say more than 40 facilities and training camps have intensified their activity near Tajikistan border, with more than 5,000 militants from various terrorist groups being there.


5) The United States is especially concerned about the increasing terrorism threat in areas of Africa. ISIS and its branches and networks have metastasized in pockets across Africa and grafted extremist ideology onto long-simmering conflicts, providing them new volatility and lethality. The United States continues to work with African partners on counterterrorism programs.


6) The Biden administration has named a Syria-based al-Qaida-affiliated group – Katibat al Tawhid wal Jihad – as a Specially Designated Global Terrorist Organization. The State Department accused the group of being responsible for the April 2017 St. Petersburg subway bombing that killed 14 passengers and injured 50 others and the 2016 bombing of the Chinese Embassy in Bishkek, Kyrgyzstan, that injured three.


7) Afghanistan was the country most affected by terror and the least peaceful country in the world in 2021, according to the Global Terrorism Index published by the Institute for Economics and Peace (IEP). In 2021, Afghanistan experienced 1,426 deaths from terrorism, around 20 percent of the world’s total. More than half of the victims were civilians. Iraq and Pakistan came after Afghanistan for the most terrorist attacks in 2021, following Afghanistan.
