    Iraq Accuses Pentagon Of "Extremely Exaggerating" Numbers Of ISIS Fighters

    The US Department of Defense Inspector General released a formal report last week which claimed ISIS retains between 14,000 and 18,000 members in Iraq and Syria, which Pentagon officials used to argue for a continuing US troops presence in Syria. They touted the report as "verification" that a US draw down in Syria had enabled a a resurgent ISIS.
    The Iraqi military, however, which partners with US forces, has rejected the report, calling it "extremely exaggerated".
    “The figure announced by the Pentagon is extremely exaggerated,” the spokesman for the Joint Operations Command, Brig. Gen. Yahya Rasool, said in a press statement, as quoted by Iraqi news agency Malouma and regional outlet Kurdistan24.

    The general added that Iraqi national forces are in their third and final phase of an operation meant to clean out final pockets of Islamic State sleeper cells.

    There is no ISIS. Trump defeated them already. US troops will be out of Syria in 30 days (by January 19, 2019).
