For more than a year, the Iraqi armed forces, the Syrian Democratic Forces, and the Global Coalition to Defeat ISIS has been chasing ISIS from the territories it once controlled. ISIS began to decentralize as its footholds in Iraq and Syria became increasingly more tentative.
You're seeing groups from all corners of the world motivated by the same bloody and deadly ISIS ideology who are using the same sorts of techniques targeting innocent men, women, and children, targeting soft targets, said Coordinator for Counterterrorism Nathan Sales at the recently-held International Conference on Mobilizing Law Enforcement Efforts To Defeat ISIS.
ISIS is down, but not out. To help achieve a lasting defeat of this depraved terrorist organization, the United States Department of State has tagged seven ISIS-affiliated groups and two ISIS-affiliated individuals as Specially Designated Global Terrorists under Executive Order 13224, and as Foreign Terrorist Organizations under Section 219 of the Immigration and Nationality Act.
These terrorists, both groups and individuals, have spread ISIS's bloody campaign to all corners of the globe, said Ambassador Sales. In December of 2016, ISIS-Egypt bombed Cairo's Coptic Christian cathedral, an attack that killed 28 people. ISIS-Bangladesh murdered 22 people in a July 2016 assault on the Holey Artisan Bakery in Dhaka. The Maute Group is responsible for the siege of the Philippines city of Marawi and the September 2016 Davao market bombing, which killed 15 people and wounded 70 others.
With these seven new designations, the United States has now designated a total of 15 ISIS-affiliated groups.
We have listed these groups and individuals to illuminate ISIS's global network and to emphasize once again that the campaign against ISIS is far from over, said Ambassador Sales.
These designations will deny ISIS the resources it needs to carry out terrorist attacks because we don't just want to stop the bomber, it's also essential to stop the money man who buys the bomb.
1. The Maute Group is responsible for the siege of the Philippines city of Marawi
be responsible for 对……负责，是……的原由
I believe - we are responsible for what we do, no matter how we feel.
我相信— 不管我们感受如何，我们都要为我们的所作所为负责任 。
2. These designations will deny ISIS the resources it needs to carry out terrorist attacks
carry out 实施，进行
Police say they believe the attacks were carried out by nationalists.
一年多以来，伊拉克武装力量、叙利亚民主力量、全球反IS联盟一直都在努力将IS从其所控制的领土中驱逐出去 。IS的中心阵地不断消失，因为其在伊拉克和叙利亚的脚跟越来越不稳了 。
我们可以看到，来自世界各地的很多组织都同样为血腥致命的IS意识形态所驱使，而这种意识形态正在通过同样的伎俩针对无辜的男女和孩子，专挑软柿子下手，在最近举行的动员打击IS执法行动国际会议上，反恐协调员南森 赛尔斯(Nathan Sales)如是说道 。
IS虽然凉了，但仍有余党残留 。为了助力实现IS这个堕落恐怖组织一蹶不振，美国国务院指定了7个IS下属的组织和2个IS下属的个人为“特别指定的国际恐怖分子”，根据是13224，以及“国外恐怖组织”，根据是《移民与国籍法》中的第219条 。
这些恐怖分子，无论是组织还是个人，都将IS的血腥活动传播到世界的各个角落，大使赛尔斯如是说道 。2016年12月，IS的埃及分部轰炸了开罗的科普特教堂，导致28人死亡 。2016年7月，IS的孟加拉国分部在首都达卡一家名为Holey Artisan Bakery的咖啡馆里杀害了22人 。毛特组织则是菲律宾马拉维市围困以及2016年9月达沃超市轰炸案的罪魁祸首，后者导致15人死亡，70人受伤 。
