“Defeated” Islamic State preparing for comeback

Graphic News

January 30, 2019 -- Despite President Donald Trump’s claim that so-called Islamic State has been defeated, the militant organisation has yet to be finished off in Iraq and Syria, and affiliated groups remain a threat around the world.

Even though IS has lost virtually all of its former territory, the group is thought capable of sustaining an insurgency in Iraq and Syria as well as sporadic terrorist attacks abroad for years.

Estimates of IS strength range from several thousand to 30,000 fighters. The organisation’s leader, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, and several top deputies are believed to be still alive, according to Bloomberg News.

NEW GRAPHIC NEWS - a new website for a new era, coming soon…

And it will be worth the wait! The Graphic News website is undergoing a complete redesign. The new site will not only see improvements in terms of speed and user experience, but will also include many new features. For example, existing subscribers will be able to manage their accounts online via a group dashboard, and add selected graphics to lists for project planning (and which can be shared across the group).

Existing users will need to register individually - we’ll be sending instructions to our main contacts at each group and will be on hand to help you through the process, which we hope will be seamless!

If you don’t already have an account but are interested in the service, just click on the button below and we’ll get back to you within 24 hours.

Further information to follow over the coming weeks. Any questions, please contact us at helpdesk @
