Fighters of the Islamic State terror group purchase a decent part of components for explosives in Turkey and Iraq.
According to the report of the British Conflict Armament Research, fighters buy chemical agents and detonators in Turkey and Iraq. Proximity is the main reason given which the IS uses goods, sold by Iraq and Turkey, to make explosives.
Terrorists purchase components to create weapons in over 20 countries, including the US, China, Brazil, and Japan. Because of a long chain of deliveries, companies which sell components, may not be aware of their destination.
Most frequently they purchase ammonium nitrate in Turkey and Iraq, and use a Nokia 105 cell phone as a device to fire an explosive due to radio contact.
