Welcome to the Global Coalition against Daesh.

  • Turkey has commenced unilateral military action in North East Syria.
  • The US announced the withdrawal of some troops from the border zone between Turkey and Syria.
  • The Coalition remains united in its commitment to ensuring Daesh’s enduring defeat. Despite the loss of territory in Syria and Iraq, Daesh is still a global threat, and countering the terrorist organisation is critical to protect citizens around the world.
  • The Coalition must protect its territorial gains to deny terrorists the ability to regenerate or reclaim lost ground.
  • Together we must ensure that Daesh terrorists are brought to justice.

Israeli citizen indicted for trying to join Daesh

A resident of the southern Israeli town of Tel Sheva was indicted on Sunday for attempting to join the Daesh terrorist organization and produce explosives. According to The Jerusalem Post, Bilal Abu Rakaik, 20, intended to join the terrorist group and travel to Syria because he supported Daesh ideology.

Facebook must play its part in tackling the paedophiles and terrorists that lurk online

We cannot waste time when it comes to tackling paedophiles and terrorists online,  The Telegraph reported.

Women and children expected to ‘break out’ from al-Hawl camp

Women and children in the largest Islamic State detention centre in Kurdish-controlled Syria are expecting to be freed in the wake of a Turkish assault on the area, according to people inside the camp. Al-Hawl, home to about 60,000 women and children with links to Isis and 10,000 displaced civilians, has been tense since Donald Trump announced US troops would leave the area at the weekend, paving the way for the Turkish attack on Wednesday. The Guardian reported.

What is the Coalition?

The Global Coalition against Daesh was formed in September 2014 and is unique in its membership, scope and commitment. Together, the Global Coalition is committed to degrading and ultimately defeating Daesh.

The Coalition’s 81 members are committed to tackling Daesh on all fronts, to dismantling its networks and countering its global ambitions. Beyond the military campaign in Iraq and Syria, the Coalition is committed to: tackling Daesh’s financing and economic infrastructure; preventing the flow of foreign terrorist fighters across borders; supporting stabilisation and the restoration of essential public services to areas liberated from Daesh; and countering the group’s propaganda.

.@NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg: Through the @Coalition we’ve liberated millions. “Gains must not be jeopardised. An imminent concern is that captured Daesh terrorists must not be allowed to escape.” Intl community needs a solution for foreign fighters held in #Syria.

UNHCR has supported Syrian refugees, internally displaced people and host countries since the beginning of the crisis in 2011, and will continue to provide life-saving protection and assistance to those in need, mostly women and children. https://t.co/6Qg47368Dv

This morning, FM @HeikoMaas spoke with 🇹🇷 FM Çavuşoğlu on the phone & explained 🇩🇪 concerns over the 🇹🇷 military operation in #Syria: notwithstanding 🇹🇷 security interests, 🇩🇪 & 🇪🇺 see substantial negative consequences, including the risk of a possible IS-resurgence.

#NATO has been informed by Turkish authorities about their ongoing operation in Northern Syria. I count on Turkey to act with restraint & ensure that the gains we have made in the fight against ISIS are not jeopardised. I will discuss this issue with President Erdogan Friday.
