The special forces, both from Canada and elsewhere, are working with the Iraqi forces to contain what's left of Daesh. It's no longer a coherent military force with its own territory as it was in 2014-15. It is a group of people trying to lead an insurgency. So the job of special forces is to contain Daesh to prevent it from restoring itself.
We are aware of the threat posed by Daesh. Whenever there is political instability and our missions are not progressing is a good time for the people of Daesh because it gives them a chance to communicate with each other and to move around.
However, Daesh is not the only threat on the ground. There are also Shia groups. We are aware that they are not completely controlled by the government of Iraq and that they can take orders from Iran. We are also concerned about the threat posed by Shia militia groups.
