    Shafaq News/ The American “Mission and Purpose” website, which specializes in military affairs, stated that the United States forces and its allies have carried out 387 operations against ISIS in Iraq and Syria so far during the year 2023, which is much more than they did in the whole of last year, 2022, pointing out that despite the acceleration At this pace of operations, far fewer ISIS members were killed than last year.

    The American report, translated by Shafaq News Agency, quoted the US Central Command (CENTCOM) as saying that up to October 2023, US and allied forces were able to kill 101 suspected militants in these operations, 78 of them in Iraq, and 23 in Syria, but by comparison, allied forces killed at least 686 ISIS militants during the year 2022, including 220 in Iraq, and 466 in Syria.

    The report indicated that although a smaller number of ISIS militants were killed during the year 2023 in Iraq and Syria, the allied forces were able to capture a larger number of suspected ISIS members compared to 2022, explaining that a total of 483 ISIS members were arrested until the end of October. October, including 150 who were arrested in Iraq and 333 in Syria.

    On the other hand, in 2022, American and allied forces were able to arrest 374 suspects, including 159 in Iraq and 215 in Syria.

    The report pointed out that the pace of operations against ISIS in both Iraq and Syria remained constant during the months of September and October compared to the months that preceded them, despite the ongoing attacks launched by Iranian-backed groups against American forces in the region, indicating that it is Last October 17, American soldiers in both countries were attacked by drones and missiles 64 times, 30 of them in Iraq and 34 in Syria, according to what the Pentagon had announced.

    The report quoted Dale Byman, a researcher at the Center for Strategic and International Studies in Washington, as saying that the increasing number of missions and the decline in the number of deaths comes with ISIS in Iraq and Syria resorting to hiding, noting that the organization is now resorting to practicing guerrilla warfare and that it is now likely that His gunmen intertwine with other groups.

    After referring to the continued American military presence in Iraq and Syria, Byman said that this presence “puts an end to what ISIS can do,” by preventing the organization from rebuilding itself. However, he added that it is not entirely clear how weak the organization has become. .

    The American researcher wondered whether ISIS “is weak and therefore no longer important, or does the presence of the United States there make the organization weak... it is difficult to know that?”

    Bayman pointed out that one of the reasons why the United States has not completely withdrawn from both countries is that officials in the American administration remember how the withdrawal of the American army from Iraq in 2011 was followed by the emergence of ISIS, which was able to control about 40% of Iraq and a third of Syria.

    According to Byman, the complete defeat of ISIS will require establishing better governance in the region to give local residents better alternatives than joining the terrorist organization, adding, "This is of course a very difficult issue when countries are in a state of civil war or suffering from a lot of unrest."

    The report quoted Byman as saying that the current strategy of the US forces is to keep the terrorist organization in a permanent state of decline so that it is forced to spend its resources on survival instead of planning broader terrorist attacks.

    The report stated that during the months of September and October, American forces carried out 53 joint operations in Iraq, which led to the killing of 10 suspected ISIS militants and the arrest of 33 others. They also carried out 23 joint operations in Syria and three other missions for the United States only in Syria, which led to the killing of three ISIS members and the arrest of 45 others.
