SDF (Syrian Democratic Forces) forces continued their offensive against the last enclave of the self-proclaimed Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS/ISIL) in the region of Baghouz on Sunday, following a break to allow for the evacuation of civilians.

Footage from Sunday, shows SDF forces patrolling the streets of Baghouz during the offensive’s third day, with US-backed coalition forces reportedly targeting a weapons depot.

More than an estimated 13,000 civilians reportedly evacuated Baghouz in the week preceding the beginning of the SDF offensive on Friday.

the end of the Caliphate is nearing. Precautions against a comeback have to be taken.

They will come back may be in another form as they always have. Al Qaida was the news in the last 15+ years. Osama was big bad boy and he was replaced by Abu Bakr Al Bagdhadi and soon Abu Bakr will be forgotten another bad a**e will show up

At the little difference that letting ISIS “win” for a while attracted many many roaches. It’s likely that over Syria+Iraq, more than 200,000 jihadis were killed and survivors have seen how

According to a roach stranded into Baghouz who posted on Telegram, they want a ceasefire. Coalition actions killed 2,500 of their most hardened fighters into 3 days!
