Illustrative image


On April 22, ISIS news agency Amaq released an infographic summarizing the group’s attacks in Iraq and West Africa over the last ten days, which were the first quarter of the holy Islamic month of Ramadan.


According to the infographic, ISIS cells carried out 40 operations in Iraq, including the April 15 car bomb attack in Sadr city in the capital Baghdad and the April 17 raid on three positions of the Iraqi military and tribal forces near al-Hliwah Aiport in Kirkuk.


As a result of the attacks:



  • 73 service members, local fighters and civilians, including an officer and a local governor, were killed or injured;

  • 13 vehicles were damaged or destroyed ;

  • 2 electricity towers were destroyed;

  • 40 electricity generator and transformer were destroyed;

  • 9 houses and shops were burned or damaged;

  • 5 thermal surveillance systems were destroyed.


Over in West Africa, ISIS cells carried out a total of seven operations, including the April 15 attack on Nigerien military positions in the town of Mini Swrwa in the Diffa region and the April 16 attack on A Nigerian military base in the town of Camuya in Borno State.


As a result of the attacks:



  • 61 soldiers and civilians, including eight workers in international organizations, were killed or injured;

  • 14 vehicles, including 8 armored vehicles and tanks, were destroyed;

  • 6 pickup trucks were captured;

  • 2 artillery pieces of the Nigerian military were destroyed;

  • 2 bases of the Nigerian military were burned down.


ISIS has for sure exaggerated the results of its recent attacks in Iraq and West Africa in an attempt to raise the morale of its supporters.


The summery, however, shows how the terrorist group have been tirelessly working rebuild its influence in various parts of the world at the same time.
