How to use insurgent in a sentence?

  1. Hashmat Stanakzai:

    We are trying the identify who planted the bomb. No insurgent group has claimed responsibility so far.

  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. Human Rights Watch:

    Afghan journalists face threats from all sides: government officials exploiting weak legal protections to intimidate reporters and editors to compel them not to cover controversial topics; the Taliban and other insurgent groups using threats and violence to compel reporting they consider favorable; and police and justice officials letting threats, assaults and even murders go uninvestigated and unprosecuted.

  4. Faysal Itani:

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

  5. 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.
