A wide expansion of the Islamic State, which seized large areas in Iraq and Syria, became one of the world's most pressing major problems in 2014.
The jihadist group includes about 30,000 militants, according to the CIA.
The militants have declared a "Caliphate" in the occupied territories, signaling their desire to further expand the Caliphate's territory.
