ISIS Releases Summary Of Its Recent 'Battle Of Attrition'

Illustrative image

On May 28, ISIS’ al-Naba newspaper released an infographic summarizing the results of the terrorist group’s recent “Battle of Attrition 3.” The infographic piece claimed that ISIS carried out 228 operations in twelve different regions across the world. The operations included 82 attacks with improvised explosive devices (IEDs), 45 raids, 30 assassinations and 24 sniper attacks.

In al-Naba’s infographic, the operations were distributed as follows:

  • Iraq: 132 operations, 225 people were killed or injured;
  • Syria: 51 operations, 92 people were killed or injured;
  • Western Africa: 15 operations, 60 people were killed or injured;
  • Egypt: 9 operations, 22 people were killed or injured;
  • Central Africa: 6 operations, 54 people were killed or injured;
  • Libya: 4 operations, 2 people were killed or injured;
  • Somalia: 3 operations, 11 people were killed or injured;
  • Yemen: 3 operations, 9 people were killed or injured;
  • Afghanistan: 2 operations, 8 people were killed or injured;
  • Eastern Asia: 1 operation, no casualties reported;
  • Pakistan: 1 operation, 2 people were killed or injured;
  • India: 1 operation, no casualties reported;

For the last three years, ISIS cells carried out coordinated operations in the Spring with the aim of draining their foes, especially in the Middle East.

As the infographic indicates, Iraq and Syria were the main points of ISIS’ so-called Battle of Attrition 3. While a good chunk of the claims in the infographic are mere propaganda, there is no secret that the terrorist group is still highly-active in the two countries.
