According to a Global Terrorism Index (GTI) report, which provides a comprehensive Summary of the key global trends and patterns, over 80 per cent of the fatal casualties since 2013 have occurred in Iraq, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Nigeria, and Syria. These casualties, however, were generally caused by local terrorist groups before the advent of the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL). The ISIL has emerged as the most potent threat of terrorism to most countries of the civilised world, with its overt or covert supporters across the world. Despite the recent decline in the fortunes of the ISIL in Syria and Iraq, there is likely to be no great change in the global situation in the near future.
The ISIL has plans of future expansion in Lebanon, Israel, Jordan, Palestine, and southern Turkey. Moreover, it is trying to get a foothold in several African and south and central Asian countries.
