U.S.: No Safe Havens Left for ISIS in Syria or Iraq

(U.S. Defense Department) Cheryl Pellerin - With 50% of Raqqa, Syria, now under the control of Syrian Defense Forces and holding forces in place in Mosul, Iraq, the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria has no safe haven left in either country, U.S. Army Col. Ryan S. Dillon said Thursday. He said fighting in the tightly packed old city is difficult because buildings and even corpses are rigged with improvised explosives by ISIS to stall the SDF advance. "ISIS does not have the same level of leadership it once had. They do not have the same level of grandeur. People just no longer want to come and join these terrorists. And they do not have the resources they once had. ISIS is losing."
