Military operations against Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS) in Syria are wrapping up and the last pocket of the jihadists’ “caliphate” will be flushed out within a month, Mazloum Kobani, the chief of the Kurdish-led Syrian Democratic Forces, has said. 

“The operation of our forces against [IS] in its last pocket has reached its end and [IS] fighters are now surrounded in one area,” AFP quoted the top commander as saying.

The head of the Syrian Kurdish YPG militia, Sipan Hemo, said earlier that talks with the government over the future of the northeast region will begin in days after a “positive” reaction from Damascus, Reuters reports.

Any deal between the YPG and President Bashar Al-Assad could piece together the two biggest chunks of a nation splintered by eight years of conflict.

A deal only makes sense when it results in a better new Syria. Going back to before 2010 makes no sense as it will sow the seeds for a new revolt in a number of years or a large repression to prevent a new one.

A democratic new Syria that breaks down a large central bureaucracy and devolves operational decision making to regions is much more efficient and effective. So maybe power will rest in more persons. All for the better imo.

Law of attrition is against Daesh. Daesh is now a pale shadow of itself. Even Nazis thought they are far superior and invincible. May be it is time for you to brush up your shining wrist watch and stand in another AL-Nuri mosque start a new sermon for a resurrection of Daesh – 2 in Africa. How about Nigeria. Daesh loves Oil.

Bit diffrence between Isis and nazis, firat Isis is a small group with light weapons and foreign fighters who didn’t have a military program education, Nazis were a nation with airborne missiles and heavy weaponry, Isis fights 79 nations with no airborne and no heavy weapons you are getting humiliated everyday, and the shining watch the caliph wears is a Muslim watch showing prayer times and direction of makkah, Zionist media claimed it would be a omega or Rolex hahahahaha, good try it was a simple 100$ watch if caliph wanted he could buy you and your entire bloodline, no… Read more »

The mujahideen will always terrorize and kill the enemies of Allah luntil Judgement you moron. The Messenger of Allah(peace be upon him) said “There will never cease to remain a faction from my (Ummah) nation fighting upon the command of Allah subjugating his enemies until the hour arrives and they are upon that.”
