The battle against ISIS amid its resurgence

Earlier this month, the U.S. Special Forces Operation against the leader of Da’esh, or ISIL, Ibrahim Qurayshi, also known as Hajj Abdullah, was apparently successful on two levels. It removed from the scene a supreme commander who had a major role in the Islamic State’s efforts to regroup and once again take over parts of Syria. It also raised the possibility that Da’esh will not be able to function under a single authority of a so-called Caliph, but from now-on act in a decentralized fashion through its various geographical provinces. Is this the way ahead for an Islamist movement which several years ago terrorized large parts of Iraq and Syria, but was beaten back and lost its territorial conquests, though not its virtual hold on many Muslims in the Levant and elsewhere?
