Fight against terrorist militia IS – look

It should be about the fight against the terrorists in their original areas of operation Syria and Iraq, but also about the increasing activities in Africa and Afghanistan. “The IS in Iraq and Syria has been pushed back, but not defeated, in other regions it is even gaining influence,” said Maas. “In Rome we will make it clear: We will not allow the terrorists an inch, not even in Africa.”

In the summer of 2014, IS took control of large areas in northern Iraq. Shortly afterwards, the jihadists proclaimed a caliphate, which also included the regions they controlled in neighboring Syria, a civil war country. The anti-IS coalition, to which 83 countries now belong, was founded under the leadership of the USA.
