Nigeria has surpassed Iraq as the country with the most IS assaults.

Nigeria has surpassed Iraq as the country where the Islamic State has carried out the most attacks (IS).

This was revealed in a Jihad Analytics report on global and cyber jihad. Half of the attacks claimed by IS since the beginning of 2022 were in Africa, according to the company that processes data on global and cyber jihad.

The Islamic State in West Africa Province (ISWAP), an IS affiliate, is also becoming increasingly active in Nigeria, according to Jihad Analytics.

Since January 2022, Nigeria has registered 162 IS operations, while Iraq has recorded 120.

In a tweet, the business stated:

“The Islamic State has carried out half of its strikes in Africa since the beginning of the year.”

“For the first time in the jihadist group’s history, Iraq is no longer the country where #IS claims the most operations: #ISWAP is now more active in Nigeria.”
