According to various reports the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) is believed to have captured enough radioactive material over time to build a large “dirty” bomb.
In addition Australian intelligence reports cited by The Independent, ISIS militants possess radioactive material, mostly stolen from “government facilities”, enough to build a large and devastating dirty bomb – a conventional explosive that is meant to disperse radioactive material over a large area.
Australian Foreign Minister Julie Bishop also confirmed these concerns recently.

In an interview recently with The Australian, Bishop also said that Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS/ISIL) extremists “did not just clear out the cash from local banks” when they swept across large swathes of Iraq and Syria.
Indications ISIS were also targeting hospitals and industry for radioactive, biological or nuclear materials.
Bishop said that her statements stemmed from reports filed by the Australian Department of Defense, as well as the Foreign Office.
Last year ISIS “terrorist groups” have seized nuclear materials used for scientific research at a university in the country’s north. See video: Nuclear Jihad? ISIS captures 40kg of ‘nuclear materials usable in manufacturing WMD’ https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L9VtHl861Hs
