Report: ISIS Suicide Attacks in Iraq & Syria Now at All-Time High
The number of suicide attacks by ISIS in Iraq and Syria has reached an all-time high this year, according to a new report reviewed by Fox News.
Chief intelligence correspondent Catherine Herridge reported the grim numbers this morning.
The terror organization is now carrying out as many attacks in a month as it used to launch over the course of a year.
At least 24 people were killed and dozens more were wounded in three ISIS bombings on May 30 in Baghdad.
It comes despite the intensified U.S.-led bombing campaign and U.S. Special Forces soldiers operating on the ground.
Herridge noted that terrorism analysts say ISIS is bringing suicide attacks "into the mainstream," which al Qaeda was unable to do.
The State Department argues that ISIS has not had any notable battlefield successes in the past year, but a spokesman did acknowledge that the group is expanding its reach to other nations, like Libya.
Herridge has reported previously that ISIS has been moving its base of operations from Iraq and Syria into Libya.
Three ISIS suicide bombers struck in Brussels in March, killing 32 people and wounding more than 300 at a busy airport and metro station.
