    Twitter has verified the official account of the Muslim Brotherhood, after previously banning conservatives, celebrity Trump supporters, and a women's rights group who criticized Saudi Arabia. The account, which has over 140,000 followers, was given its blue verification badge just days after the platform announced a crackdown against "hate groups," despite the fact that the Muslim Brotherhood previously supported a special tax for Jews and non-Muslims in exchange for "protection".

    Germanys spy agency has warned that the Islamic State (IS) is infiltrating refugee groups to get into Europe. Officials and analysts are now looking into methods by which potential terrorists can be spotted early.

The rampage left 130 people dead, 85 of them in Bataclan, where the band, the Eagles of Death Metal, was playing. Meanwhile, investigations have revealed that all nine men involved in the attacks...

A confessional had been turned into a closet, a tomb had been desecrated, red prayer benches were burned.

    Of the 31 states that have declared their opposition to taking in Syrian refugees, one state, Kentucky, has a specific reason to be wary of the background check process: previously two Iraqi refugees who settled in Bowling Green turned out to be al Qaeda-linked terrorists with the blood of American soldiers on their hands, an ABC News investigation found. In the wake of the Kentucky case, the U.S. halted the refugee program for Iraqis for six months, a fact the Obama administration did not disclose to Congress at the time, officials told ABC News in the 2013 investigation.

    States that refuse to help resettle Syrian refugees are guilty of illegal discrimination, a federal appeals court ruled Monday, delivering a judicial rebuke to GOP vice presidential nominee Mike Pence, who as Indianas governor had tried to halt Syrian resettlement. Judge Richard Posner, writing for the three-judge panel of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit, said theres no evidence that Syrians are more dangerous, and he said even if they are, allowing Indiana to refuse to resettle them would only foist the problem onto neighboring states.

    U.S. and coalition troops were forced to allow hundreds of Islamic State commanders, fighters and their families to flee the embattled northern Syrian town of Manbij, fearing any attempt to attack the escaping forces would end in massive civilian casualties. A convoy of a hundred to a couple of hundred individuals associated with the Islamic State, also known as ISIS or ISIL, left Manbij Friday shortly after the Syrian Defense Forces, the American-backed paramilitary force battling the Islamic State in the country, wrested the city from the terrorist organizations control, according to Col.

Roanoke has long been a hub for arriving refugees, with more than 800 accepted in the past five years, according to U.S. State Department data.

Some eight families were reportedly wiped out in the IS-controlled village of Tokhar near Manbij on Tuesday (19 July), in what could be one of the deadliest bombings of civilians by coalition forces since the start of operations in the country.

The extremists are renowned for their shocking punishments meted out by their feared al-Hisbah police who enforce their strict version of Sharia Law on the towns and cities they conquer. Often the punishments are handed out for seemingly minor infringements and their latest example shows just how brutal they can be.

    ISIL, however, is a formidable, resilient, and largely cohesive enemy, and we anticipate that the group will adjust its strategy and tactics in an effort to regain momentum. In the coming months, we can expect ISIL to probe the front lines of its adversaries for weaknesses, to harass the forces that are holding the cities it previously controlled, and to conduct terror attacks against its enemies in Iraq and Syria. To compensate for territorial losses, ISIL will probably rely more on guerrilla tactics, including high-profile attacks outside territory it holds. A steady stream of attacks in Baghdad and Damascus demonstrates...

    BAGHDAD (AP) In March, a senior commander with the Islamic State group was driving through northern Syria on orders to lead militants in the fighting there when a drone blasted his vehicle to oblivion. The killing of Abu Hayjaa al-Tunsi, a Tunisian jihadi, sparked a panicked hunt within the group's ranks for spies who could have tipped off the U.S-led coalition about his closely guarded movements.
