Islamic State 'Caliphate' Defeated, But Threat Persists

According to Reuters, U.S.-backed forces proclaimed the capture of Islamic State’s last territory in Syria on Saturday, eliminating its rule over a self-proclaimed “caliphate." Originally an offshoot of al Qaeda, IS took large swathes of Iraq and Syria from 2014, creating a theocracy known for its attacks by supporters in the West.
