At least 525 people have died in six attacks in six countries across the world as ISIS, also known as Daesh, carried out chilling attacks led by suicide bombers and crazed gunmen.
Of the six attacks, American counter-terrorism officials say three were directed from ISIS strongholds in Syria and Iraq.
Two were classed as so-called announcement attacks, in which local ISIS cells revealed their existence.
Daesh were named as the prime suspect when 102 people taking part in a peace demonstration were killed when a bomb exploded outside the main train station in Ankara, Turkey on October 10.
At least 245 people were injured during a march protesting against the conflict between the state and Kurish militants in south-east Turkey in the country’s deadliest terror attack. Thee days of national mourning followed.
The bloodshed continued on October 31 when a Metrojet plane bound for Russia blew up over Egypt, killing all 224 passengers and crew.
Foreign secretary Phillip Hammond said it was highly likely the jet was brought down by a lone ISIS supporter shortly after taking off from Sharm el-Sheikh.
In the chaos that followed the UK suspended all flights to the tourist resort and evacuated more than 1,000 Britons on special repatriation flights.
Daesh continued its sickening attacks when two suicide bombers blew themselves up in a crowded marketplace in Beirut, Lebanon on November 10.
Some 43 people were killed in the blast when two crazed jihadis detonated their explosive vests.
In a cruel twist the bombers set off one explosion before sending in another bomber to deliberately kill those who had rushed to aid the wounded.
It is believed the attack took place as revenge for Lebanese support for Syrian dictator Bashar al-Assad.
Three days later the western world was left in shock when ISIS slaughtered 130 people, including Briton Nick Alexander, in a series of attacks in Paris on November 13.
Hundreds were left seriously injured when the team of crazed gunmen and suicide bombers attacked restaurants, bars, the Stade de Paris and the Bataclan concert hall in a matter of hours.
Days later a police seige followed as counter-terrorism officers raided the lair of mastermind Abdelhamid Abaaoud. He was killed, alongside his cousin, when a third terrorist detonated a suicide vest during the raid.
Authorities continue to hunt for other suspects involved in the massacre.
In the wake of the Paris attacks as European countries considered bombing ISIS in Syria the death cult bombed a bus in Tunisia.
The attack on the bus, which was carrying members of the presidential guard, killed at least 12 people.
A Daesh cell in Tunisia claimed responsibility for the atrocity.
Days later 14 people were killed in a shooting in San Bernardino in California by a couple, alleged to be supporters of Daesh.
American officials continue to investigate the attack and its links to the terrorist organisation after attacker Tashfeen Malik posted a message of support to ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi on Facebook.
President Barack Obama said: “The threat from terrorism is real, but we will overcome it.
“We will destroy the Islamic State in Iraq and any other organisation that tries to harm us.
“We will prevail by being strong and smart, resilient and relentless, and by drawing upon every aspect of American power.”
As a result of the wave of ISIS attacks Britain remains on high alert and has extended deadly airstrikes from Daesh strongholds in Iraq to Syria.
The United States also continues to target Daesh, killing notorious murderer Jihadi John as well as Abu Nabil, a senior leader of Daesh in Libya.
As the West steps up its fight against ISIS, taxi driver Muhaydin Mire stands accused of attempted murder following a stabbing at Leytonstone tube station.
He was arrested after a knife-wielding man threatening passengers and shouting “this is for Syria” was caught on camera. Prosecutors claim the attack was an act of terrorism.
