Iraq Monday celebrated the anniversary of its costly victory over Daesh (ISIS), which has lost virtually all the territory it once held but still carries out sporadic attacks.The government declared victory last December after a grueling three-year war in which tens of thousands of people were killed and hundreds of thousands displaced. Daesh, which traces its roots back to the insurgency that followed the 2003 U.S.-led invasion, swept into Iraq from neighboring Syria in the summer of 2014 .Those with suspected links to Daesh have been rejected by their communities, while thousands of children fathered by Daesh militants – including those born to enslaved Yazidi women – are still unrecognized by the state.
