From 2013 until the winter of 2016, ISIS has been in confrontation with Iraqi, Syrian, and Turkish security forces, rival Free Syrian Army, Kurdish Peshmerga fighters, as well as Russian, Iranian and United States led Coalition forces. The group’s skill was confirmed by the seizure of crucial provinces in Syria and the quick collapse of Iraqi forces in Mosul and elsewhere in northern Iraq, under the determined assault of outnumbered fighters in the years 2014 and the beginning of 2015. ISIS’s clearance of the Sunni areas of the central Iraq to the west and north of Baghdad and the threat to the Kurdish regional areas alarmed the governments across the whole Middle East and the Western powers, particularly in 2015, and during that period, it is generally feared that Saudi Arabia and Jordan might be the next ISIS targets. However, in the year 2016, the strong position of ISIS has declined in both Syria and Iraq particularly immediately after the intervention of Turkish Armed Forces to the Syrian territory against ISIS and the re-organization of the Iraqi Army under the consultancy of United States advisors.
