When Daesh (ISIS) lost its Syrian bastion Raqqa last year, Amani hoped to finally uncover what happened to her husband who had vanished in the militants' prisons.Daesh ruled over Raqqa for three years, implementing its interpretation of Islamic law until U.S.-backed forces seized the northern Syrian city on Oct. 17, 2017 .Abdullah was among them, accused by Daesh three years ago of plotting with the U.S.-backed Syrian Democratic Forces to bring a car bomb into Raqqa.Amani now works with the Raqqa Civil Council, which has governed the city since the fall of Daesh, and has demanded a committee be created to properly follow up.Human Rights Watch estimates between 3,000 and 5,000 people detained by Daesh across its onetime caliphate remain missing, a year after Raqqa's recapture.The final hope for families may lie in mass graves littered across Raqqa, where Daesh fighters, prisoners, and victims of airstrikes were buried during the assault's dwindling days.
