ISIS, which previously controlled large areas of territory extending from northeastern Syria to northern Iraq, showed signs of a significant decline in its attacks during the year 2023, according to data collected by the BBC Media Monitoring Unit.

ISIS activities have decreased by more than half compared to the previous year, and the organization’s leaders have suffered losses.

The organization’s branch in Egypt remained calm this year, joining the other two dormant branches in Libya and Yemen. Meanwhile, its branch in Afghanistan claimed responsibility for only a small portion compared to the number of attacks it claimed responsibility for last year.

The organization’s operations in Africa also claimed fewer attacks, with the exception of the Sahel branch, which expanded into eastern Mali, claimed major attacks in Niger, and focused on propaganda activities.
