Jun. 24 – According to how reported by Nathan Sales, U.S. Coordinator for Counterterrorism at State Department, the Islamic State is evolving from a terrorist group that holds a territory into a global network that aims to inspire terrorist attacks on a global scale.

This statement was made during a press conference that announced the State Department’s 2019 country reports on terrorism.
