Section 1: Effective Intelligence Analysis
Isis is currently an international terrorist organization which had its roots in Iraq and rose
as a consequence of the disintegration of al-Qaida. The group rose and rapidly captured territory
in Iraq with t6he intention of further expansion into other regions and create areas of influence
which are not limited by country or regional borders. The group has managed to expand to Syria
and several other middle east countries where they have actively occupied regions. There are
regional cells in Africa, Europe, and America which the group uses to recruit target individuals,
who are mostly young men who convert into Islam then head for Paramilitary training in

and repulse attacks. This technology is achieved through experience in past military excursions
like the Iran/Iraq war.
