The Islamic State is a jihadist militant group, which has seized large territories in Iraq and Syria. It is known for recruiting young people from all over the world using largely social media.

Some 20,000 to 30,000 foreign fighters are fighting alongside extremists against government forces in Syria and Iraq, according to various estimates.
