ISIS has launched a new propaganda magazine called Rumiyah
Following the deaths of a number of key ISIS commanders, the group has launched a new 38-page propaganda magazine, Rumiyah.
Arabic for Rome, the magazine’s title has ben seen as a reference to the fall of the Roman Empire.
But with ISIS is under attack, it is thought the jihadis do not want their propaganda to be associated with a town they could potentially lose.
The magazine aims to recruit terrorists in the West to carry out lone wolf attacks.
Charlie Winter, a researcher who has examined ISIS propaganda, said of Rumiyah: “Intriguingly, it features relatively little original content, suggesting ISIS is having to cut corners in its media operations.”
The evil jihadis have been driven back from the Syrian town of Manbij and the Syrian-Turkish border in recent weeks.
But despite a series of documents last week revealing ISIS is being plagued by in-fighting, financial issues and power struggles, the group’s flag has been seen flying on the continent.
