BBC: “Is IS Finished?”

Posted on October 5, 2016

On 13 August this year, the town of Manbij in northern Syria was liberated from IS. After the last fighter left, the town erupted: men sat on street corners, cutting off each other’s beards; women tore off their face veils and set fire to them; an old woman lit a cigarette and laughed through the smoke. Previously, all of this was banned by IS. IS has lost other towns too, such as Kobane, al-Qaryatain, Tikrit and Fallujah.
