Iraq celebrates the fifth anniversary of its liberation and victory over ISIS.
At its height, ISIS held about 40 percent of Iraq. By December 2017, it had lost 95 percent of its territory, including its most significant property, Mosul, Iraq's second-largest city.
Yet, ISIS still has sleeper cells in several Iraqi Governorates.
