About IMCTC
BRIEF HISTORY

In December 2015, the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia announced the formation of the Islamic Military Counter Terrorism Coalition (IMCTC) to form a unified pan-Islamic front against terrorism.

The Chiefs of Staff from the Islamic countries met in Riyadh in March 2016 and affirmed their determination to intensify efforts in fighting terrorism through joint work according to their capabilities, based on the desire of each member country to participate in operations or programs within the IMCTC framework as per its policies and procedures, and without compromising the sovereignty of the Coalition member countries.

They also expressed the importance of activating the launch of the IMCTC, during an upcoming meeting of the Ministers of Defense of the Coalition Member Countries.
