The battle to retake the Syrian city of Raqqa from the Islamic State terror group is a fight increasingly without front lines.

They are known as the cubs of the caliphate, youngsters enlisted by the Islamic State, which views them as “the generation that will conquer Baghdad, Jerusalem, Mecca and Rome.”

U.S. President Donald Trump said Thursday that America and Europe have suffered "one terror attack after another," but that "we're going to get it to stop."

Many U.S. military officials point to the Euphrates River Valley, namely Deir Ezzor province in Syria, and the area around the city of al-Qaim in Iraq.

As the push to recapture Mosul from Islamic State enters its final days, Iraqi forces say they will soon launch an assault on Hawija, the terror group's last stronghold in the country.

The deputy commander of the U.S.-led coalition working to defeat the Islamic State group said Monday "the final liberation of Mosul is drawing ever closer."
