Daesh mufti calls on militants to move to Egypt, Palestine

The mufti of Daesh in Iraq reportedly called on Arab militants to head towards Egypt and Palestine, Iraq News reports. The individual had apparently called both countries “the promised land,” said sources in Tel Afar — Daesh’s final stronghold in Nineveh province in northern Iraq. The “fatwa” comes as Daesh has suffered its most glaring defeats since it emerged, losing almost all its territory in Iraq, including Mosul; its de facto capital, Raqqah, is now under siege. Analysts have suggested the defeats are behind the spate of attacks Egypt has suffered of late. Israeli officials are also on high alert these days, with some IDF officials saying it was a matter of time before Daesh in Sinai steps up attacks, writes Roi Kais for Ynet.
