ISIS extremists are mounting increasingly bold attacks in Syria and Iraq following their loss of territory in both countries, UN experts said in a new report.

The panel of experts said in the report to the UN Security Council that the militant group is also exploiting weaknesses in security in both countries.

The experts monitoring sanctions against the ISIS and Al Qaeda said it is unclear whether the new ISIS leader, Abu Ibrahim Al Hashemi Al Qurayshi, can effectively lead the extremist group’s diverse and far-flung supporters and affiliates.

But the panel said unidentified UN member nations have made a provisional assessment that the strategic direction of the extremist group is unchanged when it comes to administration, propaganda and recruitment — and that command and control between its “core in the conflict zone and affiliates abroad will be maintained”.
