The International Coalition puts the hand on 80 million documents belonging to DaishTranslated by Hamid Ahmed
The fugitive militants of their strongholds in Syria have left a treasure trove of intelligence in records that spell out everything about the terrorist organization. This information is divided between funding sources and personal documents related to its fighters.
"Getting our hands on records with detailed information about them is an excitatory thing," said General James Garard, commander of the Special Operations Division of the Coalition Forces.
Zahed also maintains accurate records of directives and orders marked by official seals used by the organization.
According to coalition headquarters, over the past three years, the coalition and local forces have put their hands on hundreds of computers and data storage hubs in northern Syria, which contain a huge amount of information. Each terabyte of computers can store more than 80 million pages of documents.
"We have revealed and learned a lot about their organizational structure, how they secure communications among themselves, and how to prepare their employees and employees with their finances," said Garard.
"It is a record of every minute detail that the organization has kept, with a wealth of detailed information about each individual," he said, adding that the record also includes a comprehensive list of all insurgents who have moved to Iraq and Syria.
The information enabled the coalition to target senior commanders of the organization. "The most important information we are now looking at urgently is the communication aspect, understanding the origin and structure of the organization so that we can focus and identify our targeting efforts," he said.
The Pentagon said it managed to kill many of the organization's top leaders, but the organization's leader, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, was still alive.
Analysts are also using this intelligence to draw a broader picture of how a hasty organization was managing its affairs.
At the height of its power, the Da'id organization was reaping around $ 50 million a month in oil revenues and another $ 500 million through its looting of banks and banks in the areas it controlled.
In 2014, the organization swept wide territory from Iraq and Syria, including Mosul, Iraq's second largest city. And then it seemed an unorganized organization, attracting recruits from all over the world to join the alleged caliphate in Iraq and Syria.
According to the international coalition against Daqash, the organization has now lost 98% of the land it occupied. The pockets of armed men have fled to remote areas, interspersed with villages along the Euphrates River basin, which are distributed along the border between Iraq and Syria, and the organization's revenues have been depleted.
"They are now struggling to get money in some areas," says Garard. "Coalition efforts need only a few more weeks to complete the complete eradication of the caliphate."
"This does not mean that the war is over, we must continue to maintain this pressure and momentum on them," said the commander of the Special Operations Division of the International Coalition Forces.
Most of the intelligence was obtained last October when US-backed local forces drove armed militants out of thinness. Such information would provide the US military and other agencies with evidence of how the organization would try to maintain its existence after losing all the territory it occupied.
"Intelligence can provide us with a detailed picture of how the organization will try to reappear," says Jennifer Caffarella of the Institute for War Studies in Washington.
Intelligence indicates that the organization is focusing its attention now on maintaining its presence and that no orders have been issued regarding a change in its tactics or strategy.
Even if some pockets of organization remain, reviving the organization will not be easy. After the collapse of his alleged succession, the organization lost its image of boasting about recruiting recruits and insurgents who had expanded its size and influence.
"What made the organization a global terrorist group is the image and the financial resources it enjoyed," Garard said. "Now his image and his name, where former supporters are drawn, have faded and his financial resources are no longer available."
