Paris Is Just The Latest In A Horrific Series Of ISIS Atrocities

Before Paris, ISIS attacks in the past two months included luxury hotels and mosques.

The day before Parisians were targeted in Friday's devastating terrorist attacks by Islamic State extremists, citizens in Beirut were reeling from ISIS suicide bombings there.

Since last year, when it broke away from the al Qaida network and declared a caliphate in territory it controls in Iraq and Syria, ISIS -- also known by the Arabic acronym Daesh -- has claimed responsibility for or been linked to scores of terrorist actions around the globe. The attacks in Paris are at least the seventh by ISIS and its affiliates in just two months, and show the extremist group's expanding reach. 

 This year alone, there have been almost 80 major attacks and arrests related to ISIS activity that either were completed or planned, according to The New York Times

Here are excerpts from news reports covering major ISIS actions in the 60 days prior to the attacks in Paris.
