From Daesh to govt control, Syrians left with few choicesCarrying her 4-year-old son, Elham Saleh walked all night behind a smuggler, navigating land mines through Daesh (ISIS)- and rebel-held territory in northern Syria. "Once he joined Daesh, I fled with my son, and Daesh began searching for me," said Saleh, sitting on a couch on the floor of a house that she and her relatives are using in this village southeast of Aleppo.She, like thousands of others who escaped, paid 60,000 Syrian pounds ($120) per person for smugglers to help them flee Daesh territory.Samia al-Moussa wasn't so lucky. She fled Daesh-held territories last year but lost her husband to the extremists.
