The Islamic State, previously known as the Islamic in Iraq and the Levant (ISIL)/the Islamic State of Iraq and Greater Syria (ISIS) and previously known as the Islamic State of Iraq (ISI) and al-Qaeda in Iraq (AQI), is a terrorist group that emerged in the wake of the U.S.-led war against Saddam Hussein. Originally helmed by Abu Musab al-Zarqawi, it targeted civilians and battled coalition forces, killing many U.S. soldiers, before suffering reverses due to the 2007 troop surge and indigenous resistance. In the aftermath of Zarqawi's death in October 2006, AQI, then operating a Majlis Shura al-Mujahideen front group, merged with other jihadi groups in Iraq to form ISI. After the U.S. withdrawal, ISI returned to prominence with a new wave of bombings and attacks. In 2013, its leader announced that the group had expanded its operations to the Syrian theater, where it fights both the regime of Bashar al-Assad and less radical opposition movements; it changed its name at that time. ISIL seized large swaths of territory across Iraq in a 2014 offensive, most notably spearheading insurgent offensives into Mosul and Tikrit. On June 29, 2014, ISIL announced itself to be the Caliphate/Islamic State, the first such declaration since the end of the Ottoman Empire. Underlining ISIL's threat to America, two AQI-affiliated jihadists admitted to the U.S. as refugees were arrested in Kentucky in 2011 and later convicted on terrorism charges.
