Many of the countries directly affected were among those in the Arab League, a regional organization in the Middle East and northern Africa. During the final periods of the Syrian Civil War and the Assad-regime's victory, the movement of various ethnic Arabs into neighboring countries caused a large insurgency of islamic terrorism, with groups such as the Islamic State being revived following it's near dissipation from Syria and Iraq in 2019.
