The difference between the militant outfit ISIS (Islamic State of Iraq and Syria) and other conventional terror groups is that ISIS has positioned itself as a fully-fledged government instead of just a bunch of fighters.
It is currently managing different territories in Iraq and Syria that it has conquered. And it’s expanding its regime gradually with the aim to form a Caliphate.
Under the leadership of Caliph Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, who holds a Ph.D. degree in Islamic studies, ISIS has already started delivering governance to its people.
According to the Terrorism Research and Analysis Consortium (TRAC), ISIS has established a full governance structure. Islamic State is now evolving into a government with military capabilities, says TRAC.
Among its other departments, the Al Hayat Media Center is working as a professional media arm of ISIS and handling the mass communications activities of the organization.
