Attacks by Islamic State spiked between July and September with a 40 percent uptick in daily attacks globally, according to a study released Thursday.

In the three months between July 1 and September 30, IHS Jane’s Terrorism and Insurgency Centre (JTIC) recorded, using open sources, a total of 1,086 attacks by the terrorist organization worldwide.

The 11.8 attacks per day in these three months represented a 39% increase from the 8.5 attacks per day over the preceding 12 months.

“On a global scale there was relatively little in the way of nominal territorial expansion by the Islamic State in the past three months,” said Matthew Henman, head of IHS JTIC.

“Instead, the Islamic State maintained its strategy of expanding and consolidating local territorial control within its existing structure of provinces.”
