The Islamic International Peacekeeping Brigade (IIPB), also known as The Islamic International Brigade, the Islamic Peacekeeping Army, was the name of an international Islamist mujahideen military organization, founded in 1998.
Its Emirs (leaders) were the Arab Mujahid Ibn Al-Khattab and Chechen Shamil Basayev, and was active in the War in Dagestan where many of its members were killed or captured by Russian forces. Most of its remaining members fought in the Second Chechen War, in which its former leaders died (Khattab in March 2002 and Basayev in July 2006).
