    ISIS Attacks Soared in Past 3 Months: Report
    AP

    Attacks carried out by ISIS jumped 42 percent over the past three months, according to new data published by IHS Jane’s Terrorism and Insurgency Center Thursday.

    The data shows a total of 1,086 ISIS attacks took place globally between July 1 and Sept. 30. The average daily number of attacks increased to 11.8 from 8.3 in the preceding quarter.

    There is a margin of error, according to IHS, since the actual number of attacks is likely higher because the data recorded only included operations definitively linked to ISIS by governments.

    The vast majority of attacks during the reported period took place in Iraq and Syria.
