NATO STRATCOM: Terrorists want to shift attention from the Middle East

The terrorist organization Daesh is using terror to "shift people's attention from the Middle East" as they're losing terrain in Syria and Iraq, according Polish army officer Major Rafal Zgryziewicz, who has researched Daesh's information strategy for NATO's Riga-based STRATCOMCOE.

Among other things, Zgryziewicz discusses how and why young people from the West are radicalized and join terrorist organizations.

He stresses that every country has to approach its anti-radicalization efforts individually. Zgryziewicz's interview with Latvian Television's De Facto aired Sunday.
