Today these children are lost — sometimes literally. They are currently growing up among women who would see them as the next generation of jihadists in waiting. Children of some nations, particularly Russia, Turkey and some Central Asian republics, have gone home more quickly, but Western children have not fared as well. Some have been abandoned by the countries where they are ostensibly citizens.

Authorities said they dropped the bombs on the island to 'disrupt Daesh the ability to hide in the thick vegetation'.

Coalition forces are still conducting ground clearance operations to destroy any remaining Daesh on the island.

Last week, Hill said in a statement that attacking ISIS fighters and their support networks across Iraq enables the government of Iraq's continued stability and reconstruction efforts.

'We know they are hiding in the ungoverned spaces [and that] Daesh is still trying to regenerate,' Hill said on September 2.

He declared that the coalition will 'stay here and support the ISF [Iraqi Security Forces] until no longer needed'.

The ISF, supported by the coalition, are attacking Daesh networks and degrading their capabilities.

'The pressure that we’re keeping on them keeps Daesh decentralized,' Hill said. 'We do see some unraveling of their communications.'

In August, the OIR and the Syrian Democratic Forces reported that they have detained more than 225 suspected Daesh fighters in the last 4 months and removed 4,000 pounds of explosives from the battlefield within the two months.

Between July 2 and July 31, 2019, the OIR conducted 33 strikes consisting of 60 engagements against Daesh targets in Iraq.

The coalition also engaged 101 Daesh tactical units, destroyed 15 buildings, eight bed-down locations, seven tunnels, seven weapons caches, four vehicles, one improvised explosive device site and completed one terrain denial mission.

The news of the blasts comes just days after President Donald Trump decided to cancel Afghan peace talks.

Following the cancellation, the Taliban warned on Sunday that Trump's decision will cost more American lives.

Zabihullah Mujahid, a Taliban spokesman, criticized Trump for calling off the dialogue and said US forces have been pounding Afghanistan with attacks at the same time.

'This will lead to more losses to the US,' he said. 'Its credibility will be affected, its anti-peace stance will be exposed to the world, losses to lives and assets will increase.'

Strikes have also picked up in Afghanistan. American jets dropped nearly 800 bombs against targets in Afghanistan last month, which were the most since November of last year.

In Washington, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said that Afghan peace talks were on hold and Washington would not reduce US military support for Afghan troops until it was convinced the Taliban could follow through on significant commitments.

When asked on 'Fox News Sunday' whether Afghan talks were dead, Pompeo said: 'For the time being they are.'

'I have been fully supportive of this effort,' Pompeo, a veteran Army officer, said. 'The direction that we have taken at the State Department, the effort President Trump has given us guidance to go deliver on is something that I think is important, it's valuable, I think the timing is just right. We made enormous progress.'

Trump has long wanted to end US involvement in Afghanistan - since his days as a candidate - and American diplomats have been talking with Taliban representatives for months about a plan to withdraw thousands of US troops in exchange for security guarantees by the Taliban.

Netanyahu urges rival Gantz to form unity government with him

  Netanyahu urges rival Gantz to form unity government with him Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu called on Thursday on his main rival, former general Benny Gantz, to join him in a broad, governing coalition after Israel's election ended with no clear winner. A spokeswoman for Gantz, leader of the centrist Blue and White party, had no immediate response to the surprise offer from Netanyahu, head of the right-wing Likud party.The change of strategy reflected Netanyahu's weakened position after he failed again in Tuesday's election, which followed an inconclusive ballot in April, to secure a parliamentary majority.

There are currently 14,000 US forces as well as thousands of other NATO troops in the country, 18 years after its invasion by a US-led coalition following September 11, 2001, al Qaeda attacks on the US.

Fighting in Afghanistan has continued amid the talks and recent assaults by the Taliban cast doubts over the draft deal.

As violence has escalated, Afghan leaders including President Ashraf Ghani have been increasingly critical of the deal and encouraged the Taliban to enter direct talks.

On Tuesday, Trump abruptly forced out John Bolton, his national security adviser with whom he had strong disagreements on Iran, Afghanistan and a cascade of other global challenges.

The sudden shake-up marked the latest departure of a prominent voice of dissent from the president's inner circle, as Trump has grown less accepting of advice contrary to his instincts.

It also comes at a trying moment for Trump on the world stage, weeks ahead of the United Nations General Assembly and as the president faces pressing decisions on difficult foreign policy issues.

Tensions between Bolton, Trump's third national security adviser, and other officials have flared in recent months over influence in the president's orbit and how to manage his desire to negotiate with some of the world's most unsavoury actors.

Since joining the administration in the spring of last year, Bolton has espoused scepticism about the president's whirlwind rapprochement with North Korea, and recently has become a vocal internal critic of potential talks between Trump and leaders of Iran and Afghanistan's Taliban.
