July 18, 2023

Over the past few days, jihadi figures and media outlets continued joining Meta's newly-launched U.S.-based social media app Threads, posting about jihadi groups' attacks, leadership, and encouraging followers to use the app as a platform to promote shari'a and jihad.

Earlier this week, MEMRI JTTM published a report identifying some jihadi accounts on Threads that have already accumulated dozens of followers.

The following report will highlight additional accounts that have been identified, including one pro-Islamic State (ISIS) media outlet, two outlets supporting Hay'at Tahrir Al-Sham (HTS) in Syria, and accounts affiliated with controversial Salafi clerics accused of inciting terrorism. 

The full text of this report is available to MEMRI Jihad and Terrorism Threat Monitor subscribers.
