President Donald Trump vows to ‘defeat radical islamic terrorism’ – INSULTS MEDIA

wikipedia:

The Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL, IPA /ˈsl/), also known as the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria[note 1] (ISIS, /ˈss/),[39] Islamic State (IS), and by its Arabic language acronym Daesh (Arabic: داعش‎‎ dāʿish, IPA: [ˈdaːʕɪʃ]),[40][41] is a Salafi jihadist unrecognised state and militant group that follows a fundamentalist, Wahhabi doctrine of Sunni Islam.[42][43][44][45][46][47][48] ISIL gained global notoriety in early 2014 when it drove Iraqi government forces out of key cities in its Western Iraq offensive,[49] followed by its capture of Mosul[50] and the Sinjar massacre.[51]

This group has been designated a terrorist organisation by the United Nations and many individual countries. ISIL is widely known for its videos of beheadings[52] of both soldiers and civilians, including journalists and aid workers, and its destruction of cultural heritage sites.[53] The United Nations holds ISIL responsible for human rights abuses and war crimes, and Amnesty International has charged the group with ethnic cleansing on a “historic scale” in northern Iraq.[54]
