ISIS is undergoing a losing battle in Mosul, its last remaining stronghold in Iraq, and it is expected to lose control of the city in the coming months. 

However, it still has a deadly capacity to carry out terrorist acts. Even without its so-called caliphate, ISIS will continue to undermine stability in the country.

The bombings over the past week have barely registered in the international media and the conscience of the international community.

Terrorist groups such as ISIS view Kurds, Yazidis, Christians and other minorities as heretics, but it is their attacks on Iraq’s Shias (who represent Iraq’s majority) that would amount to what the United Nations and other international institutions have described as the factors that collectively constitute a genocide.
