US-Led international coalition confirmed, “No signs of the remnants of Daesh terrorist gangs,”.
"Daesh gangs are defeated from the regional point of view, but they are still a challenge," said the spokesman for the coalition, Colonel Wayne Marotto, to the Iraqi News Agency (INA).
Marotto added that Daesh elements no longer control 110,000 km of territory or rule over 8 million people, “as they have fallen but have not left," noting that "its toxic ideology poses a threat to the world,"
“Daesh maintains the ability to terrorize communities in Iraq, Syria and elsewhere," noting that "the coalition will continue with partner forces to pressure Daesh remnants to prevent their return,"
He also stressed that "the coalition has not noticed any indications of Daesh return in Iraq,"
