Libya

U.S.A
HOW WAS ISIS FORMED?
"Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, is the leader of the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria, or ISIS."

Al- Baghdady was born in 1971 in Iraq, he has a degree in the Islamic law.

Al- Baghdady was an officer under Saadam's regime.

Ironically, he was detained by the U.S. for a year, then he was released in December 2004.

HOW WAS ISIS FORMED?

ISIS was already existed in Iraq as sleeping cells.

When the civil war erupted in Syria in 2011, many Iraqi fighters joined the group.

Despite the Iraqi fighters, there were many foreign fighters joined the group from....
ISIS executed hundreds of Iraqi soldiers June, 2014.
" Iraqi officials and some human rights groups cautioned that the militants' claim to have killed 1,700 soldiers in Tikrit".
ISIS'S capabilities
"ISIS controls more territory than the governments of Israel and Lebanon. It controls nearly a third of Iraq alone, according to the Long War Journal."










ISIS's Capabilities


"The Islamic State "can muster between 20,000 and 31,500 fighters across Iraq and Syria," a CIA spokesman told CNN on Thursday."


ISIS's CAPABILITIES

Their daily revenue is over six million dollars from oil refineries that they seized in Syria and in Iraq.

Ransoms and taxes are other resources to the group’s revenue where they can recruit more fighters.
ISIS's CAPABILITIES

When part of the Iraqi army collapsed under heavy fire by ISIS. The group then seized large amount of weapons that were supplied by the U.S. to the Iraqi army.







"ISIS has captured hundreds of US supplied upgraded Humvees, pickup trucks, tanks and armored vehicles, artillery pieces, and even reportedly a number of helicopters."

U.S. MILITARY CAMPAIGN AGAINST ISIS
U.S. MILITARY CAMPAIGN AGAINST ISIS
The purposes of the airstrike was

1- Protecting Americans in Iraq.

2- Helping Iraqi minorities who were trapped on Sinjar Mountain " Yazidis"

3- And preventing massacres (genocides) to Yazidis and other minority groups.

4- Helping the Iraqi army to regain the territories that thay lost.
`
U.S. MILITARY CAMPAIGN AGAINST ISIS
Some major countries have joined the U.S campaign against ISIS such as U.K, France, Canad, and Australia.

Arab countries also have participated to suppress ISIS, like Saudi Arabia, Jordan, and

United Arab Emirates (UAE).

Mariam Al- Mansouri, from the UAE was the first arabic female who bombed ISIS this summer.



U.S. MILITARY CAMPAIGN AGAINST ISIS
Kurdistan also for the first time sent female fighters to confront ISIS from the ground.
HOW LONG WILL THE WAR AGAINST ISIS LAST?
No one can predict exactly how long the war against ISIS will last.

But probably it will take more than few years:

According to a statement from a high rank in Pentagon.

" The Chairman of the Joint Chiefs, Army Gen. Martin Dempsey, says the U.S.-led effort to destroy Islamic militants in Iraq and Syria will likely last beyond Barack Obama’s presidency — taking up to four years."
HOW MUCH WILL IT COST?
"The U.S. military operations targeting Islamic State militants in Iraq and Syria have already cost taxpayers between $780 and $930 million."

"If air operations are conducted at a higher pace and 5,000 ground forces are deployed, the costs would be between $350 and $570 million per month," write the report's authors.






CONCLUSION
Syrian civil war was a safe heaven to ISIS, it was the starting point for the group to recruit fighters and to gain more territories in the region.

ISIS then separated from Al- Qaada, and declared Al- Baghdadi as the leader of the group.

Al- Baghdadi has the sense of leadership because he was a military officer under Saddam's regime.
CONCLUSION
The group has gained a big land in the region that has a lot of oil fields.

Oil and ransoms are the group major income.

Since the group is well organized, and it has more than 20000 fighters. The U.S. military campaign against ISIS will take few years and it will cost billions of dollars.
