Isis fighters ‘realise cause is lost’ as numbers hit two-year low, Barack Obama says


“In other words, the [Isis] core in Syria and Iraq continues to shrink,” he said.  “Their ranks of fighters are estimated to be at the lowest levels in about two years, and more and more of them are realizing that their cause is lost.”

ISIS has gone from a ME regional group to one with branches affiliated with nearly every other terrorist group around the world. They have struck the heart of Europe repeatedly and have infiltrated North America; they are more numerous and more dangerous today than they ever have been.
