The final remnants of the self-proclaimed Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS/ISIL) came under heavy bombardment near Baghouz on Wednesday.

Fighters from the US-backed Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) were filmed engaging in skirmishes with IS on Wednesday morning.

As night fell, airstrikes and mortar fire lit up the sky, with the enclave shelled for the third night in a row.

The attack on IS’s final stronghold has been periodically paused since it began on March 1 to allow thousands of civilians, many of them reportedly wives and children of IS fighters, to leave.

Some still remain, although around 3,000 IS fighters and their families have surrendered to SDF forces since Monday, according to reports.

Maybe they just don’t want to slaughter civilians (women and children), unlike you filthy vermin scum usually do.

Bob if they want to prevent killing children and women they would send ground troops but since no troops can fight against Isis like men your coalition uses jets and rockets how pathetic right

I use insecticide in aerosol for cockroaches, in the same way, angels strike demons from the air. How pathetic for ’em that demons lost their wings and can’t fly 🙂
