ISIS losing territory

Daily Mail, UK - Islamic State has lost more than a quarter of the territory it seized in Iraq and Syria over the past 19-months, a new report has revealed.

The land controlled by the terror group has shrunk from 90,800sq km (56,400sq miles) in January 2015 to 65,500 sq km as of October 3 this year.

This equates to a loss of 27.9 per cent and means ISIS now only controls an area the size of Sri Lanka, according to the data released by security analysts IHS.
