ISIL Extends Reach to Ukraine, Challenging Russia
The ISIL expanded its reach to Russia after it declared sending forces to Ukraine.
Egypt’s al-Youm al-Sabe’ news website reported on Thursday that a number of ISIL terrorists, supported by the US, have stationed on Ukrainian soil to fight against the Russian forces.
The report came after the ISIL declared a governorate in the North Caucasus region in June, opening a new front in the rivalries between ISIL and al-Qaeda.
The ISIL declared a governorate called Wilayat Qawqaz (Caucasus) on June 23 following a pledge of allegiance to ISIL by some senior militants in the area.
The ISIL Takfiri terrorists currently control shrinking swathes of Syria and Iraq. They have threatened all communities, including Shiites, Sunnis, Kurds, Christians, Ezadi Kurds and others, as they continue their atrocities in Iraq.
Senior Iraqi officials have blamed Saudi Arabia, Qatar, and some Persian Gulf Arab states for the growing terrorism in their country.
The ISIL has links with Saudi intelligence and is believed to be indirectly supported by the Israeli regime.
