Commanders of the Syrian Democratic Forces, an alliance of Kurdish and Arab militias, met with Iraqi military leaders Sunday.Last week, the SDF declared victory in its assault in Syria's Deir al-Zor, which borders Iraq.It marked the end of the war against Daesh, three years after they overran about a third of Iraq's territory.Forces arrayed against Daesh in Iraq and Syria now anticipate a new phase of guerrilla warfare.The Iran-backed Harakat Hezbollah al-Nujaba, which has about 10,000 fighters and is one of the most important militias in Iraq, said last month it would give any heavy weapons it had to the military once Daesh was defeated.
