Where is the Islamic State?
The Islamic state is such a phantom, it is wherever and everywhere.
The greatest concentration of Islamists is Iraq, Syria and Libya, it is these countries that have rocked the Americans.
They are in Yemen, in Egypt, in Tunisia, in the EU countries, in Turkey, in Afghanistan and so on.
As such, there is no state, not officially.
quot; Islamic statequot; It is not a state as such, because it is not recognized by the world community. It is an international terrorist organization that occupied (not completely) the territories of Syria and Iraq, its members proclaimed their virtual state "quot; the world caliphate" in which the Shariah form of government operates, and the capital is the Syrian city of Er-Raqqa.
The motto of the IG - quot; Preserve and expandquot; - it is clear that there are no talk about any clear boundaries.
There was this quot;
in 2006 year after the unification of various groups of Islamic insurgents in the Middle East. They announced this 15.10.2006 year.
The basis of steel
Then other small groups swore loyalty to them. The number of militants is constantly increasing due to the number of people from different countries, men and even children from the territories under their control who are mobilized in IGIL under the threat of violence against their families. When the cities of Iraq and Syria are captured, criminals are released from prisons, which also become militants.
In the plans of IGIL at the first stage to subordinate the entire Muslim world, including European Muslims in the Balkans and even to Spain.
They also plan to capture Central Asia, the Crimea and the Caucasus.
At present, there are no clear boundaries for this more likely militarized entity than the state - constant military operations are laying the map right now. It is still safe to say that the Islamic state is located in the north of Iraq and Syria, sometimes the territory subject to militants extends to the north of Jordan, according to the maps appearing on the Internet. However, it is clear to everyone that the Islamic state will not stop within such boundaries - plans to create a united Islamic world on the basis of the caliphate, within borders even larger than in the era of the maximum prosperity of the Ottoman Empire. Here is a map that shows the current borders of the Islamic state:
But the immediate plans for creating a single caliphate:
An Islamic state is more likely an abstract concept, since territorially this state is not fixed anywhere and has no clearly defined borders. In the future, the Islamic State (IS) plans to seize and subjugate vast territories. Currently, IS combat groups have seized some territories of Syria, Iraq, and their groups are also conducting military operations in Lebanon, Libya, Egypt, Algeria, Afghanistan, Pakistan, and several other countries.
Here, so on the map are the territories controlled by the Islamic State (IG):
An Islamic state is not a territorial unit on a world map. This is the name of a group that subjugates the people and territory.
While IGIL operates in the territory of Syria and Iraq, but in its plans to increase the territory of the government.
The Islamic state (IG, IGIL, DASH) has no clearly expressed and confirmed boundaries of influence.
It is known only that IG
Also on the map below you can clearly see the places of the greatest concentration of IG influence.
The so-called Islamic state arose on the territory of Iraq, the fighters of it were the remaining out of order officers and soldiers of the Iraqi army after the American occupation of the country. Now there are nanniki from all over the world fighting, including from Russia.
They spread their influence on part of the territory of Syria, and in their plans to subordinate the entire Muslim world.
According to various data from various media, the Islamic state is located on the territory of several states, which include the state of Syria, on the territory of which Russia is conducting a military air operation. While air! I hope that the Islamic state will be peaceful someday!
An Islamic state is an unrecognized state that, in principle, does not have a clear territory, it is located on the territory of other states. So to speak, they control the territory. During the fighting, the territory is now subject to change. At the moment, ISIS is considered a large territory of Syria, Iraq, there is also a center in Libya, Lebanon.
