The Berlin Vehicular Ramming Attack – What we know & Insights from ICT Experts

ICT Staff
On Monday, December 19, 2016, Germany witnessed the worst terrorist attack carried out on its soil since the 1980s. While the full identity of the attacker is still under investigation, Germany has a history of being the victim of both international and homegrown terrorism. Germany continues to be a significant target for terrorists, especially since the country joined the anti-ISIS coalition led by the United States.
The Demise of the Caliphate: Quo Vadis ISIS?

Dr. Ely Karmon
As the two coalitions against ISIS, the one led by the United States (is it indeed a coalition?) and the other one led by Russia and Iran, are close to defeat the organization on its territorial basis in Iraq and Syria and conquer the two major stronghold cities, Mosul and Raqqa, politicians, military experts and academic pundits are asking themselves what will be the future of its scattered forces and especially the impact of its "ideology" on future events in the Greater Middle East and beyond.

This paper presents some of the possible scenarios in such a dynamic and complex situation. However, some important territories where ISIS associates, leaders and individual fighters could find suitable ground to build a new territorial basis or stage from there major local or international terrorist attacks will be the subject of a follow-up paper.
