Next stop, Europe? ISIS could move west after losing a quarter of its territory – the size of Ireland – to coalition forces, security experts warn
ISIS fighters wave flags through the streets of Raqqa. It has now been revealed that ISIS has lost a quarter of its territory in the past year
- ISIS controlled territory in Iraq and Syria has been reduced by quarter
- The terror group has now been driven out of an area the size of Ireland
- Their income has also plummeted from £61.7million to just £43.2million
- Experts are warning ISIS may shift their focus to terror attacks on Europe
ISIS could ramp up terror attacks targeting Europe after security experts say the terror group has lost a quarter of its territory to coalition forces in the past 18 months.
The terror group has been driven out of an area the size of Ireland across Syria and Iraq after an sustained assault by government forces.
But defence and security experts are now worried the dramatic reduction in its territory could see the extremists escalate attacks on civilian targets in both Europe and across the Middle East.
According to figures compiled by IHS Conflict Monitor, ISIS controlled territory has dramatically reduced from 35,000 square miles in January 2015 to 26,370 square miles.
Earlier this year, IHS also estimated that ISIS revenue had dropped from £61.7million last year to just £43.2million in March this year.
