U.S. Intelligence Trains ISIS in Eastern Syria | Source: Syrian Observer

U.S. forces, through American intelligence agents, are training ISIS militants to use them in attacks against the Syrian and Russian armies, as well as communities and essential facilities.

This operation is not the first of its kind in that region; rather, it appears to reflect that the group’s militants are fighting within SDF’s ranks.

AFRICA:

  • The Islamic State has found a new lifeline in Africa. It has forged ties with many of these local insurgencies as a marriage of convenience: For the militants, the Islamic State brand brings recognition from local governments that the homegrown guerrilla movements have long craved. The Islamic State, in turn, has been able to broadcast the local militants’ attacks as proof that their global jihad is alive and well.
