CHAPTER III Summary The Islamic State – also known as ISIS, ISIL, or Daesh – emerged from the remnants of al Qaeda in Iraq (AQI) and over the next few years, they took the advantage of growing instability in Iraq and Syria to carry out attacks. The group changed its name to the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) in 2013, they launched an offensive on two cities in Iraq in June 2014. While on June 29, ISIS leader Abu Bakr al Baghdadi announced the formation of a caliphate stretching from Syria to Iraq, and renamed the group the Islamic State. In 2015, ISIS expanded into a network of affiliates in at least eight other countries. Its branches, supporters, and affiliates increasingly carried out attacks beyond the borders of its so-called caliphate. In October, ISIS at Egypt affiliate bombed a Russian airplane, killing 224 people. On November 13, 130 people were killed and more than 300 injured in a series of coordinated attacks in Paris. And in June 2016, a gunman who pledged support to ISIS killed at least four dozen people at a nightclub in Orlando, Florida.
