Thailand: The Jihad you Never Heard of Now has a Face and a Name

Over the years, TTB has detailed on occasion the Jihadist insurgency in Thailand that the Western media has largely ignored.

Now that insurgency has a name associated with it: the Pattani Consultative Council, a coalition of 6 Jihadist organizations in southern Thailand.  It comprises of the National Revolutionary Front, the Pattani Islamic Mujahiddeen Movement, the Islamic Liberation Front of Pattani and three factions from the Pattani United Liberation Organization.

All they want, they say, is an independent Islamic State in southern Thailand…They want to ensure Islamic laws and regulations are enforced.

The Council warned that there will be more violence until the right of self-determination for Muslims is guaranteed.



New Jihadist group surfaces in Afghanistan, calling itself ‘Islamic Commandos’

While much of Afghanistan has been wracked by violence in recent months with the resurgence of the Taliban as the US withdraws forces, along with the entry of Islamic State Jihadists, Allied forces are now evidently battling a new terror group called the ‘Islamic Commandos’.

The Islamic Commandos group has reportedly been operating in the Zabul, Urozgan and Kandahar provinces in Afghanistan, with at least 1,000 members, according to Afghan officials. The officials believe that the Islamic Commandos are a breakaway group from the Taliban.
