ISIS, also known as ISIL, which rose to power in the wake of the US-led 2003 , has become known for fighting alongside the West-backed rebels in Syria and for its gruesome atrocities that even the international terror group Al-Qaeda now holds too radical.

ISIS includes thousands of foreign fighters and has been attracting many jihadist volunteers from Europe and North Africa, Western intelligence agencies reported, according to Reuters.
