In eastern Syria, the infants of dying Daesh 'caliphate' have an uncertain fateThey were born in a "state" that no longer exists, most to fathers who are dead and mothers whose countries don't want them back. These are the children pouring out of Baghouz. Their grimy faces are the only ones visible in the sea of black veils worn by their mothers, packed in the back of a dozen pickup trucks spiriting them away from Daesh's (ISIS) last holdout in eastern Syria.Khadija is 1 year old, born under Daesh in the eastern province of Deir al-Zor.She is swaddled in a thick blanket by her mother, a 17-year-old Syrian girl from 500 kilometers away in the northern city of Manbij.
