Nashir Magazine / Media Foundation is now in Southern Mexico and Latin America
An Islamic State (ISIS)-linked propaganda magazine, published in English, Arabic, and French by the Nashir (ناصر) Media Foundation, is urging jihadists in Europe and the United States to carry out deadly “lone-wolf” attacks to avenge the terrorist group’s losses in Mosul.

An article in the Nashir magazine titled “O thee whom Al – Adnani called thee wolves” echoes previous calls to war by former ISIS commander and chief propagandist Abu Muhammad al-Adnani, stressing the importance of local jihad and urging jihadists that “if the tyrants have shut the doors of hijra [immigration to ISIS territories] in your face, then open the gate of jihad in their faces and make them regret their action.”
“Jihadists are persuaded not to wait to see the outcome of the battle for Mosul, but rather launch attacks on coalition countries by any means possible,” reports FD.
Although Adnani was killed in a U.S.-led coalition airstrike back in August, his propaganda message has outlived him and is still used to motivate jihadists to carry out attacks in the West.
“Several affiliations of the pro-ISIS Nashir Media Foundation such as the Nashir Political Service, have become active online in recent months, particularly on the encrypted messenger app Telegram,” notes the Foreign Desk. “New private channels appear almost daily, quickly mushrooming to hundreds if not thousands of followers before being deleted by Telegram staff.”
