Daesh is responsible for unimaginable global suffering, said British MP Andrew Murrison in an op-ed for Al-Sharq Al-Awsat. He said that the threat of terrorism comes from the far-right and Islamist extremists alike and concluded that governments’ greatest tribute to terror victims would be to work tirelessly to prevent future attacks and reject extremist ideologies.

Pompeo: Daesh regained strength in some areas.

US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo acknowledged that Daesh has regained strength in some areas of Syria and Iraq, while adding that their ability to carry out external attacks is greatly diminished since their territorial defeat.

Kabul – Dozens died in an attack against a wedding crowd

A Daesh suicide bomber killed at least 63 when he blew himself in a crowd at a wedding feast in Afghanistan’s capital Kabul.

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 80 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.
