ISIS fighters and their jihadist supporters have slaughtered at least 1,515 civilians in terrorist attacks outside of Iraq and Syria over the past two years, it was reported Thursday.

The attacks have taken place around the world by ISIS operatives or lone wolves inspired by the radical Islamic militants — and have targeted nightclubs, restaurants, airplanes, hotels and subway stations, the New York Post reports.

The startling figures come in the wake of the latest terror strike at Turkey's airport in Istanbul — the sixth in that city this year, including those by Kurdish separatists, the Post reports.

CIA Director John Brennan said the attack not only bears the hallmarks of an ISIS operation, but that the terror group is planning similar bloodshed in the United States.

No Americans died in the attack, but 43 fatalities as a result of the airport attack include 13 non-Turks, the Post reports. Officials have said the coordinated assault on Ataturk airport bore the hallmarks of ISIS, but that there has been no official claim of responsibility.

Turkish officials have not publicly identified the attackers, but they reportedly were Russian, Uzbek and Kyrgyz.

According to the Post, the ISIS-operated Amaq News Agency, though it made no mention of the attack, posted an infographic celebrating two years since announcing its "caliphate."

"They reach out to disenfranchised people who live on the fringes of society to brainwash them," an unnamed U.S. counterterrorism official said, the Post reports.
