( CNN) A week after Iraq’s Prime Minister Haider Al Abadi declared succes over ISIS in Mosul, Iraqi troops are continuing to clear the country’s second biggest metropoli of remaining fighters but US and coalition officials are already focusing on the next objectives in the campaign to overcome the fear group.

The next major award being eyed by the coalition is the Syrian city of Raqqa, the would-be caliphate’s one-time “capital.” Lt. Gen. Townsend told CNN last week that following the capture of Mosul, Raqqa was “now job number one.”

Speaking to reporters on Monday Pentagon spokesman US Navy Capt. Jeff Davis called Syria “our biggest focus of effort.”
