The Islamic State (IS), a Salafi jihadist terrorist organisation and unrecognised proto-state, has an administrative section called ISWAP.

It is particularly active in the Chad Basin, where it fights a multi-pronged insurgency against Nigeria, Cameroon, Chad, and Niger. It is a branch of Boko Haram, with whom it maintains a violent feud; in 2021, Boko Haram leader Abubakar Shekau was killed in a combat with ISWAP.

Although the actual relationships between ISWAP and IS-GS are limited, it is the umbrella organisation for all IS factions in West Africa, including the Islamic State in the Greater Sahara (IS-GS).
