The Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) group has launched English-language radio news bulletins on its al-Bayan radio network.
The militant group’s English bulletin, launched Tuesday and promoted via Twitter, accompanies Arabic and Russian bulletins already airing on the network.
The first bulletin, which provided an overview of their activities in Iraq, Syria and Libya, discussed a range of topics including the alleged death of an ISIS commander in the Yarmouk refugee camp in the Syrian capital, Damascus, a suicide bombing in the Iraqi city of Kirkuk and mortar attacks on militias in Sirte, Libya.
The ISIS militants hold territory in a third of Iraq and Syria and are becoming increasingly active in Libya. The group also publishes a monthly online English-language magazine, Dabiq, with religious lessons, plus news about its activities.
