ISIS seized a large area of land in 2014 after rising to prominence quickly in Iraq and Syria but it also saw its self-proclaimed caliphate crumble as a result of an upsurge in hostility and bloodshed.

ISIS was destroyed in Syria and Iraq in 2017 but the extremist group’s sleeper cells are still conducting strikes in both countries.
