One year ago the Global Coalition to Defeat Daesh/ISIS, in conjunction with our local partners, liberated ISIS’s last remaining stronghold in Baghouz and crushed its territorial ambitions.  Today, nearly eight million people have been freed from ISIS’s control in Iraq and Syria. Many have returned home to rebuild their lives thanks to various forms of Coalition assistance and stabilization support.

Progress in our campaign allows for the restructuring of our footprint, without prejudice to our ability to carry out our mission.  In the meantime, the unprecedented challenges posed by the COVID-19 pandemic to the Iraqi and Syrian people, and to our mission, led to temporary adjustments to protect the force during this period, in full coordination with Iraqi authorities.

Almost a year since the death by suicide of former Daesh leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, academics and journalists across the Middle East and beyond are analysing new revelations about the Daesh leader’s past. Declassified documents released by the Combating Terrorism Center at West Point reveal that in 2008, whilst in US custody, Mohammed Said…
