The offshoot of al Qaeda which has captured swathes of territory in Iraq and Syria has declared itself an Islamic "Caliphate" and called on factions worldwide to pledge their allegiance, a statement posted on jihadist websites said on Sunday. The group, previously known as the Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant (ISIL), also known as ISIS, has renamed itself "Islamic State" and proclaimed its leader Abu Bakr al-Baghadi as "Caliph" - the head of the state, the statement said.

An Analysis of ISIS Quarterly Reports: Kill and Conquer

James Foley's beheading illustrates ISIS' ruthlessness; the growing organization's reports reveal its calculating nature

Any doubts about how ruthless and single-minded the Islamic State (commonly referred to as ISIS) had become were dispelled on Tuesday. A gruesome propaganda video began circulating that evening, showing the purported beheading of James Foley, an American journalist who disappeared in Syria in 2012. A masked ISIS executioner, speaking to the camera in a distinctly British accent, announces in the video that the murder is in response to American air strikes on ISIS in Iraq, ordered by President Obama 12 days earlier.

ISIS is becoming an increasingly ruthless and effective killing machine, one we can now quantify. For several years, as the organization evolved—moving between Iraq and Syria and changing its moniker—what we now know as ISIS has been cataloging its litany of vicious attacks in minute detail. Each event is labeled with the precise date, type and location of the attack. ISIS has, to date, released consistent reports on its operations only in Iraq; no such material is provided on Syria. Likewise, detailed information about the victims has been largely withheld, until the emergence of the video showing Foley’s murder.


Vocativ has discovered, collated and tabulated the available data from monthly reports posted in various online forums affiliated with ISIS. The reports detail every ISIS attack in chronological order (see embed below). The ISIS reports were published by what the organization calls its “media ministry.” These reports were provided only in Arabic, which suggests ISIS wasn’t targeting them for Western exposure, but rather to spread news of its achievements throughout the Arabic-speaking world to would-be recruits and supporters. It should also be noted that, as ISIS generated the reports, not all details can be corroborated. Regardless, the organization’s data provides a detailed picture of how ISIS views itself and what its shifting priorities are in the battlefield.

ISIS: A Caliphate, by the Numbers

One thing is abundantly clear: ISIS is a more potent force than ever before. Of particular note, given Tuesday’s gruesome beheading video, will be the gradual increase in assassinations (the red line in the graph below). ISIS has been tracking them since late 2011. We broke down the data into quarters, and in Q1 of 2011, ISIS counted 94 executions. Two years later, in Q1 of 2014, that number had more than quadrupled to 399 assassinations over a three-month period.

Sniper killings have also risen sharply. In the last three months of 2013, ISIS counted 37 sniper kills. In the first three months of 2014, that number had risen to 270.

Similarly huge spikes in improvised explosive device (IED), mortar and rocket attacks toward the end of 2013 show a rise in the types of strikes that require skill and financing, and it’s worth noting that the figures we present today stop in April 2014. That’s a full two months before ISIS raided the central bank in Mosul, making off with $425 million, and three months before it acquired an enormous stash of U.S.-donated military hardware from a base north of Mosul, from which Iraqi soldiers fled in fear. So while ISIS’ growth in late 2013 and early 2014 is clear from the reports, the figures don’t yet represent what the better funded, better equipped ISIS has been able to do since June (not to mention that it has reportedly attracted 6,000 new fighters to its ranks in July). Expect an even bigger spike in Q2 and Q3 of 2014.

As its priorities change from month to month, ISIS drops some reporting categories and adds new ones. It documented just a single case over the three full years of documents surveyed by Vocativ in which an “infidel” was run over and killed. ISIS stopped reporting “deaths in close combat” at the end of 2012 and started regularly recording “expelled Shiite fighters” in late 2013.

Some pullout data: Suicide missions remain a popular mode of killing for ISIS. The trends show two main methods, the suicide belt and the suicide car bombing, and how the former is giving way to the latter.

ISIS belt/vest bombings peaked toward the end of 2013, then showed a sharp decline in 2014. Car bombings, in contrast, are increasingly favored. Using a car for a suicide mission is, presumably, more expensive, and therefore can be carried out more easily by a better funded organization. Car bombs can also carry greater amounts of explosive and therefore be used to even more deadly effect.

As ISIS has grown in strength in Iraq, it has “conquered” more “cities.” The reports the organization provides don’t state where towns have been lost, if any, and a direct translation here may not make sense. ISIS may have taken control of more towns, but major cities like Iraq and Erbil still elude its grasp—for now. In the group’s terms, conquering a city means cleansing it entirely of “infidels.”

Most of the attacks carried out since 2011 took place in Nineveh, Iraq. However, the numbers show attacks in Baghdad spiked in December 2013 and continued to rise for several months, reaching an all-time high in April that surpassed the number of attacks in Nineveh. The deadliest year in Iraq since 2008 was 2013, with more than 8,800 people killed. Tensions continue to be fueled among Sunnis, who say they have been marginalized by the Shiite government. This Sunni anger has made it easier for ISIS to recruit and operate in Iraq.


The ISIS reports show an organization that measures itself in incredible detail. Anything beyond that has to be inferred. Is ISIS measuring so that it can improve? Is it simply part of the organization’s propaganda war? We don’t yet have the answers to these queries, but we are constantly tracking ISIS forums and social media accounts in search of richer context. We can say the following with certainty: ISIS is better funded and more dangerous than ever. The West should be watching the extremists as closely as they are watching themselves.

  • ISIS is criminal, I agree, and hope they lose. But you are being too squeamish about killing. What do you think the aftermath of Israeli air strikes on Palestinians in Gaza looks like? Worse than beheadings because they not only cut off the head, but tear out limbs of babies. Let us not be too forgiving of hi-tech killers like the Israeli Airforce.Killing is killing, and Israelis killed more than 2,000 and wounded thousands. Both must be stopped.

  • Has the war on terror eliminated terrorism?  Of course not.  By placing boots or airpower in one nation, the terrorist forces will simply migrate to another nation.  The US will not be able to eliminate these forces unless we call for a full force invasion.  This however would cost more American lives and billions of dollars our Republic lacks.  Afghanistan was a major factor in the death of the Soviet Union.  Will the same be true for the United States?  I’d rather not take the chances to find out.  We need to get all men out of the Middle East and let them solve their own problems.

  • They need to be hunted down one by one. Their leader is disgrace and practices lawless. For one to claim or state their muslims and does not follow their guide lines of the Quran is worse than an Infidel. Dogs have more vaule then they do. At least a dog is loyal to it’s master, in the bible and Torah all aniamls knows who God is and their first born off spring is offer up to the Lord God. They make empty prayers and not heared by their God. For many state they serve the same God, but in all reality they serve a God that is unknow, or called Satan. For when did God every step off the throne and asked them to do his JOB, they are covered in bloodshed and they are equal to the unclean birds that are called Ravens the Scacengers. They hunt for Innocence and their blood poored out due to their unclean thoughts calling it the will or Conscience Of their God. They state America is the blame for their own issues and how America killed way too many Muslims yet was it not them who decleared a war that knew the death toll would raise bewteen both. The ISIS did they not go through Iraqi killing their own and shooting and killing women and men and their children. Their a Disgrace to their own.

Even though they are praticing to kill Americans, have fully automatic weapons (illegal for American citizens to own) pratice building bombs for the explosive that have (probly given bu obama since they are his brothers).And Obama was all American citizens to be fully UNARMED when these dogs come a calling on you.

God will punish these sick minded animals, because they do not act like humans, they should be treated like animals and criminals they are .

  • I dont see where the ISIS is very calculating. They are still following the horrific model of Osama Ben Laudin that accomplished nothing. Osama Ben Laudin did nothing, and cost those who protected him and fought for him, like the Taliban, to loose a lot. while he hid in some room making video tapes of himself saying threats. You would think the great spirit would have taught them a different way to approach all this by now. Iraq leader was horrible to exlude so many tribes in westren Iraq. But in Iran there is members of both sects that took the time to pray for peace. To pray together, because it means that much. A lot of good people in mosques that pray for the violence to end. Lets see which of the conflicting prayer the great spirit chooses to answer. ISIS has no ability to calculate what will happen. One can’t pay Ohms by creating more need for Ohms than they pay. Its simple to try to pay ohms to where there is a less of a need of ohms in the future. They want to attack planes, but ignore the ability to use planes for good.. to at least fufill a pillar. Calculating? More like given a breif time to correct themselves.

  • We need a ‘peaceful’ solution but the way this is going – it seems impossible. We need a new MLK or Mahatma Gandhi type of a leader to change the course of the history once again… In short, need a miracle to curb this madness!

  • Bush,Cheney and Rove should be in FEDERAL PRISON for lying us into the disastrous Iraq nightmare. As Conservative columnist George Will said, “The invasion of Iraq was the worst foreign policy disaster in American history.”

    • The libs ok’d the war, go after them. obama’s been offics for almost six years and has only made everythig worse. Don’t you libs think it might a good idea to look at him. He tripled the probles of America once he took office. You blamed Nixon for the Viet Nam war, why not do the same to barry?

      • Because Jack, if the liberals don’t blame Bush, it’s a little hard to look in the mirror.

    • Yeah and the British Intelligence agency lied when they said that Saddam had WMD and was trying to get uranium, and the Clinton appointed head of the CIA lied when he said it was a “slm dunk” that Saddam had WMD, and Pres. Clinton lied when he said the Saddam had WMD, and a whole bunch of Dems lied when they reviewed the intel and said Saddam had WMD, etc., etc., etc.  But of course that means NOTHING to the Left.  Only a person who knows NOTHING of the run up to the invasion of Iraq would say Bush lied – or a Leftist who is willing to lie to promote their failed agenda.

  • How soon we find our country back in Iraq. I believe Obama owes Bush one huge apology. Along with the American citizens

    • RLT: Just how stupid is it possible for you to be? It is because of Bush we are in this f….king mess. Sadam may have been a thug, but he kept Iraq and the neighboring states STABLE. He would never have tolerated ISIS. We are still cleaning up the Bush/Cheney/Rove catastrophy and will be doing so for decades. The three of them should be in federal prison for treason against this country!

      • I TOTALLY agree with you.

      • I appreciate your oppinion and respect your right to state it. I beleive you may be referring to Saddam Hussein(you said Sadam). However you seem to have forgotten how horrific Saddam Hussein was.  He kept things stable by killing EVEYONE who opposed him. Things maybe be unstable now, but there are far less murders than when Saddam was in power. Please do some research before making yourself out to be a fool. http://history1900s.about.com/od/saddamhussein/a/husseincrimes.htm

        • true so true but! He wasn’t behaving Americans now was he? chris?
      • Why didn’t you blame JFK or LBJ for Viet Nam?

  • The only Americans that are afraid of Isis are the ones in Washington, and I am not sure that they are Americans.  The only fear of Americans is that Washington will try to take away the arms of Americans, then groups like Isis will become a real threat to our country.  There is no doubt in my mind that the jihadists eagerly want our government to disarm our people.  Disarmament of our people will allow them to start jihad here in America.  It is what they are practicing for on their reservations.  It is what they are pushing Washington to do thru such governments as the Saudis.  Europe will see jihad in the near future.  They have already disarmed themselves and allowed the jihadists into their countries.  How many in Europe will eventually die because of the banksters and NWO criminals.

  • Do you like what Obama (of course we can’t forget Bush [9/11,.etc]) helped to support and create in Libya Egypt and Iraq, etc.? Not that you will care or see any significance but in the US there is a different type of execution of patriotic Americans by our own US Government. Until US Government lawlessness is fixed here expect more of the same from the real EXTREMISTS overseas due to CIA, US Government intervention, meddling overseas. WE THE PEOPLE have been in the crosshairs for quite some time:http://tekgnosis.typepad.com/tekgnosis/2014/07/notice-of-errors-and-of-clarifications-5-cfr-13205-214-cr-00027-ndf-2.html

  • This is an excellent and informative report that presents a useful approach to understanding the threat posed by this organization.

    • Please everyone…stop living in the past and blaming this person or that person and focus on what is happening now… there needs to be a plan, plain and simple, to KILL these people..that is all they understand.  You cannot spin this any other way.

      • I totally agree. It is not the “fault” of anyone. This is a growing extremist Islamic movement which has only ONE intention, and that is to take over the world and convert all to Islam under Shaaria Law. And to ‘take over’ is to violently murder anyone and everyone who doesn’t convert or shows any indication of not supporting their manic views. That includes Jews, Christians, Muslims who do not share extremist views, atheists, people having any other beliefs besides theres. Women and children are negligible and to be ‘used’ for their sick purposes. It’s about time people in the west realize that these ‘beings’ do not share western beliefs, do not think in western terms and cannot be judged in western terms. They are from a whole different and terrible planet of thought. They see ‘western’, ‘liberal’ thinking people are fools. And they are actually right. They have to be met head on in the only language that they understand. Death.
