How to use insurgent in a sentence?

  1. Hedayatullah Stanekzai:

    We have full preparation and facilities to run a vaccine campaign in the whole country but due to security threats, we can't send our campaigners to the Taliban-controlled and other insurgent areas.

  2. Paul Chambers:

    For a number of years, people have been speculating whether the elements involved in the insurgency in the south will be hitting other targets beyond the southern provinces, but we've never seen that happen. And it would be intriguing, if indeed there is any link, why this would happen now. almost all of the insurgent groups have been involved in a dialogue with the military government, so it's illogical for Paul Chambers to want to have a bomb.

  3. Faysal Itani:

    ISIS continues to build support among tribal groups, and attract fighters defecting from other insurgent groups.

  4. Newt Gingrich:

    He has certain habits that may have been appropriate at one time and are not appropriate now, he's gone from being an insurgent that people laughed at and a front-runner that people were amazed by to the potential nominee. That requires you to change your role as all this comes together.

  5. George Steiner:

    The violent illiteracies of the graffiti, the clenched silence of the adolescent, the nonsense cries from the stage-happening, are resolutely strategic. The insurgent and the freak-out have broken off discourse with a cultural system which they despise as a cruel, antiquated fraud. They will not bandy words with it. Accept, even momentarily, the conventions of literate linguistic exchange, and you are caught in the net of the old values, of the grammars that can condescend or enslave.
