On February 24, two booby-trapped cars exploded near the main gate of the Counter-Terrorism Forces’ headquarters in the southern Yemeni coastal city of Aden, according to the UAE-based al-Arabiya TV.

Yemeni sources said that two ISIS fighters had attacked the gate and had tried to sneak into the headquarter after the explosions. However, the attackers were killed by the Counter-Terrorism Forces (CTF).

The ISIS-linked news agency Amaq confirmed that ISIS cells had been behind the attack on the CTF’s headquarter in the city of Aden and claimed that dozens of CTF servicemembers had been killed.

Over the last few months, the ISIS influence has grown around and even inside Aden, which is held by the Saudi-led coalition. On November 5, 2017 over 20 Yemeni Police service members were killed in a large ISIS attack on the headquarters of the Yemeni Police in Aden.

    If the organisation is no longer operating in Iraq and Syria then I suggest the ISIS abbreviation now stands for Israeli-Saudi-Islamic State.

      But why are they called ‘ISLAMIC STATE’?!! Where is their ‘State’ for fucks sake?!?!?!?

        Maybe everywhere, maybe the announcement wanting to build one somehow sometimes?

        Their state is in Saudi Arabia where it always has been – where they call themselves Wahhabis. ISIS doesn’t have a presence in Saudi Arabia itself – they’re suppose to be the Wahhabi foreign outreach program.

        Well it is a global reaching entity anyway. It is like Zionism which dominates at least 60% of the world in some fashion or another. Zionist is not exactly a state. But it is more powerful then a state. It is an entity with far reaching global power.

      No longer operating in Iraq and Syria? Hmmm, I think your information might be a little inaccurate there bearing in mind there are countless fighters still active in both countries and are attacking numerous areas on a daily basis!
