Shi­ite mili­tias run for cover dur­ing an at­tack by the Is­lamic State group near Haw­ija, Iraq, on Septem­ber 30. The mil­i­tants have earned a rep­u­ta­tion for fierce fight­ing—and re­fus­ing to sur­ren­der. But that rep­u­ta­tion is crum­bling, much like the cities ISIS once held. As coali­tion troops con­tinue to de­feat the mil­i­tants across Iraq and Syria, more and more of them are putting their weapons down. The war, it seems, is al­most over.
