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 85 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.

The text of the following statement was released by the Government of Italy, the Government of the United States of America, the Government of Morocco, and the Government of Niger, on the occasion of the Global Coalition to Defeat Daesh/ISIS Africa Focus Group Meeting.

@ their meeting in NY, SA Christian Ritscher discussed w/ Mr. Eliot Minchenberg, Director of NY Office @unesco, UNITAD's investigations into the destruction of Iraqi cultural heritage by #ISIL perpetrators & cooperation between UNITAD investigators & UNESCO in this arena.

The deployment of @French_CSG Charles de Gaulle helps enable partner forces to increase regional stability. Thanks to our 🇫🇷 partners for their continued commitment to the anti-ISIS #AdviseAssistEnable mission. #DefeatISIS #OpChamal @EtatMajorFR https://twitter.com/French_CSG/status/1598712271257145347

The death of another leader is a blow to Daesh, which though weakened still threatens communities in Iraq, Syria and beyond.

The UK is resolute in its support of, and grateful to, @Coalition local security partners to ensure Daesh can never recover.


The death of Daesh’s leader will be welcomed by communities in Iraq & Syria that he terrorised. Having lost numerous senior commanders in the past year, Daesh is failing as organisation. Its followers should know that they will be endlessly pursued for their crimes #DefeatDaesh

'Since I started this work - since I handled IEDs - my personality has changed.'
As part of @UN_Women #16Days, we amplify the voices of Iraqi women leading in a range of sectors. Whether running businesses or removing explosives, they inspire others to follow their aspirations:

The courts have brought several prominent #Daesh fighters to #Justice. In a collaborated effort with our #AdviseAssistEnable #Coalition partners, #ISIS members will not get away with their crimes. The @Coalition will continue bringing Daesh perpetrators to justice. #DefeatISIS https://twitter.com/coalition/status/1598235703883751424
