HASSAKEH: Daesh is a growing threat to northeast Syria, and the group will again flourish unless immediate action is taken, the Kurdish-led region’s security chief said in the wake of last month’s deadly prison attack.
Mazloum Abdi, the commander of the US-backed Syrian Democratic Forces, said immediate security measures were taken to contain active Daesh sleeper cells, but the group is proving to be a resilient insurgency.
The threat remains high, he said, despite the death of the group’s leader in a US commando operation last week.
