Counter Terrorist Trends and Analysis Volume 8, Issue 11

This edition of CTTA focuses on the growing influence of individual actors within terrorist groups. The articles specifically focus on 1) the emergence of Bahrumsyah as a key jihadi leader among ISIS supporters in Southeast Asia; 2) the rise of Indonesian militant Bahrun Naim, who has plotted a number of terrorist attacks against local police forces as well as civilian targets; 3) the role being played by Gigih Rahmat Dewa, who is part of the Katibah Gonggong Rebus (KGR), as a key provider of logistical support to pro-ISIS activists in the Southeast Asian region; 4) Muhammad Wanndy Mohamed Jedi’s status as Malaysia’s online ‘jihadist celebrity’; 5) Isnilon Totoni Hapilon’s successful gathering of sixteen pro-ISIS militant groups in the Philippines; and 6) how ISIS’s over-ambitious religious and political goals have facilitated the organization’s internal collapse.
