How to use insurgent in a sentence?

  1. Faysal Itani:

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

  2. Joseph Dunford:

    I think it's fair to say that they still have a significant presence in Iraq and Syria. They're certainly nowhere near as strong as they were in 2017 and 2018, so they have been significantly degraded, again still maintain the ability to conduct insurgent, guerrilla-style operations and that's what they see today.

  4. Mariane Pearl:

  5. George Steiner:
