At least six Russian soldiers were killed on Friday when gunmen launched an attack on a military facility in Chechnya, the National Guard said in a statement.
“Six of the attackers were destroyed,” the National Guard said. “During the armed combat, six military were killed and there are wounded.”
The “armed bandits” stormed the base under heavy fog but failed to enter the facility, said the National Guard, a national security agency created by Russian President Vladimir Putin last year for counterterrorism and border security operations.
The leader of a notorious ISIS hacking group responsible for distributing so-called ‘kill lists,’ has reportedly been killed in a U.S. drone strike.
Osed Agha, head of United Cyber Caliphate (UCC) hacking group was allegedly targeted by a U.S. drone strike on the Islamic State’s de-facto capital Raqqa, according to encrypted Telegram messages observed by The Foreign Desk.
A FEMALE ISIS member who left Europe to fight for the terror group has blasted Muslims for ‘spoiling jihad’ because they do not ‘understand’ what it is really like to follow Islam.
An ‘exclusive’ insight into the mind of a woman inside the so-called ‘caliphate’ has featured in depraved Daesh’s latest copy of propaganda magazine Rumiyah.
‘Umm Musa Al-Finlandiyyah’ addresses readers in the insane e-magazine, with a bizarre diatribe which tells Muslims they are not worthy of Islam, if they do not subscribe to the Islamic State.
The article penned by the woman in the caliphate begin by explaining how she “came to Islam” and realised the Muslims she had met in her homeland of Finland, were not real Muslims at all.
Those who vote, fight in foreign armies, hear the preaching of non-ISIS imams, she claims, have had their religion ‘nullified’.
Al-Finlandiyyah writes: “The ignorant ‘Muslims’ are blaming the Islamic State for spreading fitnah and ‘spoiling the jihad’, though the only true jihad for Allah’s cause is what the Islamic State is actually conducting – for all of its enemies do nothing to support the establishment of Allah’s rule on earth.”
The latest issue of ISIS’ Rumiyah magazine, which in the past has included how-to articles on terror tactics and calls to attack Western sites, wades into relationship advice with a new article warning husbands and wives against talking about their marriage behind their spouse’s back.
US and Iraqi officials believe the leader of Isis, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, has left operational commanders behind with diehard followers to fight the battle of Mosul, and is now hiding out in the desert, focusing mainly on his own survival.
It is impossible to confirm the whereabouts of the Islamic State “Caliph”, who declared himself the “ruler of all Muslims” from Mosul’s Great Mosque after his forces swept through northern Iraq in 2014.
But US and Iraqi intelligence sources say an absence of official communication from the group’s leadership and the loss of territory in Mosul suggest he has abandoned the city, by far the largest population centre his group has ever held.
A Pentagon plan for the coming assault on Raqqa, the Islamic State capital in Syria, calls for significant U.S. military participation, including increased Special Operations forces, attack helicopters and artillery, and arms supplies to the main Syrian Kurdish and Arab fighting force on the ground, according to U.S. officials.
The military’s favored option among several variations currently under White House review, the proposal would ease a number of restrictions on U.S. activities imposed during the Obama administration.
Security has been ramped up at a Belgian train station after an ISIS militant filmed himself there threatening to cop off the heads of civilians and fill the streets with blood.
Islamic State issued the sick threat to Belgium warning an attack on the country is imminent in an eerie video, which starts with a militant showing a piece of paper reading ‘we are still here’, and shows a terrorist walking through Antwerp.
It is filmed in and around the city’s Central Station where police are desperately scouring CCTV footage in an attempt to identify the man behind the camera as extra officers have been deployed.
Islamic State is launching suicide attacks as a military tactic with similarities to Japan’s use of kamikaze pilots in the second world war, according to a study that looked at nearly 1,000 Isis suicide operations in a single year.
At least 923 Isis militants killed themselves in attacks between December 2015 and November 2016, according to Charlie Winter, the author of the report, War by Suicide.
Working with the International Centre for Counter Terrorism in The Hague, Winter analysed the missions and found that 84% – or 776 – were geared towards military targets, in most cases as a defensive measure to thwart the advances of opposing ground forces.
Winter said Isis had “industrialised the concept of martyrdom”.
