In the last two months, Sunni extremists spread terror across the Middle East and Africa. On June 29, 2014, the Islamic State self-proclaimed its caliphate. After one year, in correspondence to the beginning of the holy month of Ramadan, the organization called its supporters to escalate violence. On June 26, the same day of IS attacks, and exactly 5 years after the 2010 Ramadan offensive against the African Union, Al Shabaab assaulted an AMISOM military base in Somalia. Last, but not least, Boko Haram disseminated panic in the Chadian capital. In the following exclusive article, EPOS analyst Lorenzo Siggillino focuses on the issue of Sunni terrorism, highlighting the causes and the effects of it from a political and social point of view

Yemen is very susceptible to foreign interventions within domestic politics, as the country displays a high number of destabilizing forces combined with a high regional geo-strategic value. The Houthi offensive and the resulting Saudi reaction reinforced the national Sunni-Shia cleavage, pressuring local actors to slowly realign along religious identities. In the following exclusive article - the first part of a deep analysis of the situation in Yemen - EPOS analyst Lorenzo Siggillino focuses on the local actors involved in the insurgency, and outlines the interests of different opposition groups, investigating how their positions evolved and how the Shia offensive impacted on the local society

The IS movement towards Erbil threatened the security of Kurdistan Region. People were panicked and large numbers rushed into Erbil airport to leave the region. The humanitarian catastrophe in Shingal and the threat of Erbil's fall to IS rang alarm bells worldwide. The situation is rather complicated. It does not look to be a short-term bottleneck. There is a need for a long-term strategy to deal with the situation

Yazidis are facing a new attempt of genocide, the 74rd in their long history, due to absurd prejudices based on a wrong and negative interpretation of their religion.                                                               EPOS presents an exclusive photostory by Franz Gustincich, photojournalist working for EPOS with Emanuela C. Del Re, expert in Kurdistan issues and minorities. These pictures depict the Yazidi community in the core moment of their community life, that is the celebration of the "Feast of the Assembly", the greatest festival of the year for them, in Lalish temple.

EPOS aims at restoring the respect for the Yazidis as human beings, who must be allowed freedom in their beliefs and lifestyle.
