The problem is uncertainty with drones it is hard to fully acknowledge a certain kill. Unless you put the bullet in between their eyes yourself, you can not truly list an enemy as killed. ISIS is a tricky organization, they would wait and show themselves to be alive at the right moments for publicity.

"Likely" doesn't mean anything. Without a body and DNA evidence, everything that comes out in reports is propaganda. When things get grim and the people start questioning how such a small group of ISIS fighters can hold against the military force of millions, that's when you will get reports of "the tide turning".

Even if the world can stop ISIS, they will never be killed off. They will sleep and grow again in numbers and maybe with a new name and more brutal then the last.
