Less than 1,000 Daesh fighters in Iraq, Syria: coalition

Fewer than 1,000 Daesh (ISIS) fighters remain in Iraq and Syria, the United States-led international coalition fighting the hardline Sunni militant group said Wednesday, a third of the estimated figure only three weeks ago.

Iraq and Syria have both declared victory over Daesh in recent weeks, after a year that saw the two countries' armies, a range of foreign allies and various local forces drive the fighters out of all the towns and villages that once made up their self-proclaimed caliphate.
