According to 2 American reports published by The Atlantic, the end of the “Islamic Caliphate” does not mean the end of Daesh in both Syria and Iraq. The article on Iraq noted that the Iraqi government had emerged victorious against Daesh last year, but added that in the predominantly Sunni provinces of Diyala, Salahuddin, and Anbar, Daesh was again carrying out insurgent-style attacks. The article also said that one indicator of the ability of IDPs to return to their home areas was the number of mukhtars killed by Daesh in that area. [Sumaria]
DaeshDaily comment. We have noted Daesh’s targeting of mukhtars, and the lack of protection given them, many times.
