    SF is reporting the fighting in Raqqah will soon wind down as most IS fighters are killed.

    One can hope so.

    If this is correct, soon many SDFfighters can be redeployed towards DeZ.

      Large numbers of ISIS have ‘deployed ‘ to the EU countries after returning home or entering the EU countries illegally :) Enjoy the ‘enrichment ‘ Dutchnational.

        Yes, quite a bummer.

        Jihadis returning with a dutch passport are either prosecuted or, since shortly, their passports are taken away.

          Only for those you can catch. There will be plenty more who would just love to mow down a gaggle of cyclists with a Daf Truck :)

            Ever been to the Netherlands and spoken with the people there?

            The only people that get “kicked” out of their houses are those not paying their rents (subsidised in case of low income) or mortgages and in both cases they need a ruling by a judge. The numbers are very low, but of course every tragedy is one too many.

            It makes perfect sense for Zionists. They have to Divide and Conquer or live in a Ghetto.
