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.

While we celebrate this critical milestone in the fight against ISIS, the work of the Global Coalition is far from complete as Daesh/ISIS remains a significant threat. The Global Coalition will continue its comprehensive efforts in Iraq and Syria, and globally, to deny ISIS’s ambitions and the activities of its branches and networks, until the job is done.

What is the Coalition?

The Global Coalition against Daesh was formed in September 2014 and is unique in its membership, scope and commitment. Together, the Global Coalition is committed to degrading and ultimately defeating Daesh.

The Coalition’s 83 members are committed to tackling Daesh on all fronts, to dismantling its networks and countering its global ambitions. Beyond the military campaign in Iraq and Syria, the Coalition is committed to: tackling Daesh’s financing and economic infrastructure; preventing the flow of foreign terrorist fighters across borders; supporting stabilisation and the restoration of essential public services to areas liberated from Daesh; and countering the group’s propaganda.


Anbar’s Journey to Stability

Anbar Province is synonymous with the fight to rid Iraq from the scourge of violent extremism. Yet since its 2017 liberation from Daesh by the Iraqi Security Forces (ISF) supported by the Global Coalition, this former stronghold has become a shining example of how the Iraqi people, under the security umbrella of the ISF, have rebuilt their lives.…

Today, I spoke before the @UN Security Council and called for justice. @UNITAD_Iraq & SA @KarimKhanQC presented the evidence collected as indisputable proof of ISIS’s genocide and sexual violence. Now is the time to act on the evidence and formally prosecute perpetrators.

Thousands of Iraqi and Syrian people have returned to their communities following liberation from Daesh, each with their own story.

This is: #MyLiberationStory - highlighting the stories of these people, and the organisations that supported their return.

Thanks to an EU funded project “Reviving Mosul and Basra Old Cities”, UNESCO is providing trainings to more than 32 youth, like Murtada, in carpentry focusing on Shanasheel to use their skill in its planned rehabilitation of historic Shanasheel houses in Basra old city. @EUinIraq

Mosul has long been characterised by its resilient people; particularly shown in this year’s Ramadan celebrations. Traditions outlawed by Daesh are being revived across the city, as the streets come alive with decorations & lanterns covering every inch of the city. #Ramadan


"If world leaders have the political will to act on this evidence, justice is truly within reach."

Following @KarimKhanQC's briefing on @UNITAD_Iraq's progress, @NadiaMuradBasee urges Council must work to ensure justice & protect #humanrights for Yazidi victims of Daesh crimes.
