World Leaders Hail Fall of ISIS Caliphate in Syria

  • The US President Donald Trump has welcomed the fall of ISIS "caliphate" after Kurdish-led Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) raised victory flags over Daesh stronghold Baghuz (a Syrian town). However, he also said that ISIS remains a threat and urged every stakeholder to remain vigilant until the dreaded terrorist group is completely defeated. French President Emmanuel Macron also welcomed the fall of ISIS but acknowledged that “the threat remains and the fight against terrorist groups must continue.” The UK Prime Minister Theresa May called it a historic milestone and went on to say that her government remains committed towards the elimination of the poisonous ideology of ISIS.
