ISIS intends to unite forces with other terrorist groups
Russian Federal Security Service FSB Director Alexander Bortnikov said at the Moscow Conference on International Security that the intelligence services have obtained information that the ISIS terrorist organization is holding talks on unification with other terrorist groups.
"The heads of major international terrorist organizations such as ISIS, Jabhat al-Nusra (both terrorist groups, outlawed in Russia), and also the remainder of the earlier existing structures of Al-Qaeda have started changing their tactics understanding that they face complete destruction in the zone of their previous dominance," TASS cited Bortnikov as saying.
"In particular, they have stepped up the deployment of militants to Afghanistan, Yemen and deep into Africa, and also started creating their strongholds and bases," he said. "In fact, a new extensive terrorist web is being formed. Besides, data shows that the ISIS is holding talks on possibly uniting with other terrorist groups."
