All terrorists need money to spread their reign of terror. If there’s no source of funding, terrorists cannot buy weapons, or conduct terror attacks. The source of funding terrorists or their evil motive would always be illegal. Drugs or arms trafficking provide enough money to many of terrorist organisations to make them survive and plan for deadly attacks.
According to the United Nations report, terrorism funding is a global menace that threatens the security of member states and destabilises and causes economic development to slow down.
Post 9/11 world era, the US-led global alliances or treaties like NATO were determined to break the back of Taliban-led insurgency in the warring Afghanistan. NATO has taken measures to combat terrorism: it has joined the international coalition fighting the Islamic group and has set up a counterterrorism intelligence unit to improve information sharing.
