The Islamic State (IS) is a transnational Sunni Islamist insurgent and terrorist group that in 2015 controlled large areas of Iraq and Syria, had affiliates and supporters in several other states, and disrupted regional and international security using violence and terrorism.1 The group directed tens of thousands of fighters in Iraq and Syria. A number of terrorist attacks attributed to IS outside those two countries also demonstrated its ability to threaten societies in the wider Middle East, Africa, South Asia and Europe, including in states with advanced intelligence and security services.
