US commander says fight against Daesh ‘far from over’ as suspected members leave Syrian holdout

Washington, The battle against Daesh is “far from over” and the extremists remain unbroken and prepared for a resurgence despite the elimination of their physical base in Syria, a top US commander said Thursday.

“Reduction of the physical caliphate is a monumental military accomplishment – but the fight against Daseh and violent extremism is far from over and our mission remains the same,” General Joseph Votel, head of the US Central Command, told Congress.
