ISIS has set up a new social media network for its followers to share propaganda videos, photos and memes, a move that could signal the beginning of a major propaganda push.
A few days after the Islamic State group’s last video was posted, the group published a new video, with a caption reading: “We are the ones who set this world on fire.
We will continue to wage jihad till our final victory.”
The group has been trying to use social media to spread its message and build an army of followers since 2014.
On Monday, the new social-media platform, @alaysia_isis, was set up in an Arabic-language chat room, along with a YouTube channel, Twitter and Facebook pages.
The group also created a news portal, alaysia.net, in addition to a YouTube news channel, alayseer, which is also set up as a news channel.
The new website is run by Abu al-Qasim, a Jordanian fighter who has been fighting ISIS for more than a year.
The account has not yet posted a video.
Abu al Qasim is also the spokesman for alaysias militia, which controls the Syrian border.
The announcement of alaysiya.net comes as ISIS is on the defensive in Syria, where it is struggling to hold its ground against a coalition of forces from Iraq and the United States and to gain a foothold in the Syrian city of Raqqa, its de facto capital.
ISIS has lost several key battles and suffered setbacks in recent months.
It lost its key military base near Raqqa in March and its only major foothold in Iraq, the city of Mosul, in June.
In both cases, it has been in a stalemate with the Iraqi and Syrian armies, as well as Kurdish fighters, who control large swaths of territory in both countries.
The Islamic State has suffered setbacks and lost its main bases in both Iraq and Syria in recent weeks.
But the group is trying to build an offensive force and expand its ranks across the globe.
It is attempting to take advantage of the fact that ISIS is suffering setbacks in its Syrian campaign, and that it is fighting a war with no clear winner in sight.
ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi has publicly declared the group a caliphate in territory stretching from Syria in the east to the northern Iraqi city of Nineveh in the west.
Baghdadi has made many statements about how his followers would rule over a new world, including one video released in February in which he claimed that the caliphate was a reality in the near future.
In his video, Baghdadi claimed that his followers in Syria would be able to establish the caliphate by 2030.
“The people of the Islamic state will soon be in full control of Syria,” he said.
“And the entire world will know it is the Islamic caliphate.”
The video also said that “the [Islamic] State will establish its caliphate in every corner of the world.”
The announcement that Baghdadi had declared the Islamic Caliphate in the new world was widely criticized in Syria.
In an article for Al Jazeera, Alia al-Khatib, a member of the Free Syrian Army, said Baghdadi was only a figment of Baghdadi’s imagination.
“What’s happening in Syria is completely fake,” she told Al Jazeera.
“He has no knowledge about the Syrian war and doesn’t understand that the situation in Syria has become more complex.”
The leader of the FSA, Abu Bakr Zaydan, told Al-Arabiya that Baghdadia’s declaration of the caliphate in Syria was a hoax, a claim that is supported by a number of Syrian opposition groups, including the Syrian Revolutionary Front.
Zayad said Baghdad’s claim was a ploy to bolster the legitimacy of the Syrian opposition and to justify his presence in the country.
“Baghdad, as the leader of Syria, can do whatever he wants in Syria and there is no such thing as a caliphate, which he has been saying since 2013,” Zayd said.
Zayed also told Al Arabiya the caliphate is only an idea.
“It is a fiction, which Baghdadi is only using to boost his prestige,” he added.
The Syrian government, which has also struggled to defeat the Islamic States, has been attempting to recruit more fighters to its ranks, and some of the fighters have pledged allegiance to the group.
The government has also sought to use the Islamic groups to help it retake territory from ISIS.
On Sunday, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, a British-based monitor of the war, reported that the Syrian government has deployed more than 3,000 soldiers to join the battle to retake the northern Syrian city Raqqa.
But Baghdadi himself has made it clear that he wants his caliphate to extend to Syria.
He has previously threatened that the group would return to the Syrian capital of Damascus and “destroy” it.
Baghdadia has also said in several recent tweets that he plans to expand the caliphate to other parts of the globe, including Asia. In a
