ISIL territorial claims – Wikipedia

ISIL primarily claimed territory in Syria and Iraq, subdividing each country into multiple (provinces), largely based on preexisting governance boundaries. The first territorial claims by the group outside of Syria and Iraq were announced by its leader, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, on 13 November 2014, when he announced new wilayats, or provinces, in Libya (Wilayah al-Barqah, Wilayah al-Tarabulus, and Wilayah al-Fizan ), Algeria (Wilayah al-Jazair ), Egypt (Wilayah Sinai ), Yemen (Wilayah al-Yaman ), and Saudi Arabia ( Wilayah al-Haramayn).
