Daesh forces may “sim­ply aban­don Mo­sul” and flee to Syria, says Robert Fisk in The In­de­pen­dent. In­deed, al­lies of Syria’s gov­ern­ment sus­pect that the US is de­lib­er­ately leav­ing av­enues of re­treat open, so that Isis forces can head west to fight the As­sad regime. But Isis is be­ing driven back in Syria too, said Raf­faello Pan­tucci in The Daily Tele­graph. In time, “a mass of for­eign fight­ers” may be “sud­denly left with­out a home”. Se­cu­rity ser­vices are con­cerned that, like the Afghan vet­er­ans of the 1980s, they may re­turn to carry on the fight in their home na­tions.
