US terrorism report: Iran tagged as top terror sponsor, global attacks fall

  • 59% of terrorist attacks in 5 Asian countries

The State Department's annual survey of global terrorism accused Iran of intensifying numerous conflicts and trying to disrupt governments in the Middle East and elsewhere.

In addition to data on Iran, the report also discusses "a number of major strides that the United States and our global partners made to defeat and degrade terrorist organizations in 2017", including work "with allies and partners around the world to expand information sharing, improve aviation security, enhance law enforcement and rule of law capacities, and to counter terrorist radicalization with a focus on preventing recruitment and recidivism".

A new U.S. State Department terrorism report Wednesday concluded that militant attacks decreased by almost a quarter past year.

"Those are Afghanistan, India, Iraq, Pakistan, and the Philippines", said Nathan Sales, State Department counter-terror coordinator, in a Wednesday briefing prior to the report's release.

Re-imposing sanctions is one part of a larger effort by the U.S.to cut Iran off from funds used to support proxy forces and support other "malign activity" in the region, including terrorism, according to Trump administration officials. There are active fundraising networks in places as far afield as Africa, in South America.

The report specifically cited the activities of Iranian Gen. Qassem Suleimani, the powerful Revolutionary Guard commander who also helped organize the Iraqi militias against IS.

The report accuses North Korea of repeatedly providing support for acts of worldwide terrorism, citing its abductions of Japanese nationals.

"The decline in the number of terrorist attacks was particularly steep in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa and Sindh provinces, where attacks decreased by more than 85 percent since 2013", it stated.

The deaths of 4,269 people in Iraq were attributed to terrorism in 2017, compared to just under 9.800 in 2016.

The number of deaths due to terrorist attacks fell by 27 percent to 18,753.

However, despite these many successes, the terrorist landscape grew more complex in 2017, he said.

The report says the Islamic State group, Al-Qaeda, and their affiliates have become more dispersed and clandestine, turning to the Internet to inspire attacks by distant followers.

ISIL lost territory in Syria and Iraq and was responsible for 53 percent fewer deaths than the previous year, but it still carried out attacks in 20 countries in 2017, it said.
