 US Special Envoy for Syria James Jeffrey said Monday that the fight against Daesh* in Syria wasn't over, adding that the US would leave a limited number of its troops there, ONA reports quoting sputniknews.

"This is not the end of the fight against ISIS. That will go on, but it will be a different kind of fight. ISIS has lost much of its capability to project terrorist power and to have a recruiting base in an area that it controls," Jeffrey told reporters during a press briefing.

The senior official further noted that the US didn't know where Daesh leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi was.
