ISIS is in its death throes. After years of tortuous battles, the terrorists have finally been purged from Syria.
“Syrian pro-government media said Syrian troops had clashed with remnants of Isis militants in the town after they entered it late on Wednesday. On Thursday, they reported the town clear of Isis fighters,” the Independent reports.
“Pro-Syrian media reported the town was liberated. Al-Ikhbariya TV’s journalist reported from the road to the town, joyfully breaking out on camera: ‘Daesh is finished. Live.’”
ISIS no longer has a stronghold in Syria. The group’s noxious ideology still exists, but their power has been taken away. At their height, they controlled over ⅓ of Syrian territory. Now they’re scurrying like rats trying to escape the Syrian army.
“The liberation of Albu Kamal is of great importance because it is a declaration of the fall of this group’s project in the region generally and the collapse of its supporters’ illusions to divide it, control large parts of the Syria-Iraq borders and secure supply routes between the two countries,” said Army spokesman General Ali Mayhoub.
ISIS supporters, however, are still dangerous. Lone wolf attackers have taken to using trucks as their weapons, plowing the vehicles into helpless crowds.
Protecting ourselves from lone maniacs is an easier, and less dangerous task, then the all-out war happening in the Middle East.
We’re entering into a new era in the world against terror. Obama’s policies failed; President Trump’s plans for the Middle East are already meeting with success. Lives will be saved because of Trump’s masterful leadership.
