"IS the last physical outpost in Syria may have fallen. But it does not mean that terrorist organisations have drawn their last breath, believe experts."
"To fight the ideology, which is constantly likely to attract new followers, is no easy task and the breeding ground for extreme movements are still there."
"According to the kurdiskledda US-backed SDF-alliance, ICE has been defeated in the syrian al-Baghuz, IS the last stronghold."
"– Now we can assume that the physical so-called caliphate has lost its last little landficka, unlike when Trump several weeks ago declared that the ICE was 100% defeated, which is not sued, " says Bitte Hammargren, Mellanösternexpert at the Swedish Defence research agency (FOI)."
