Hundreds of Daesh terrorists are refusing to surrender in the Syrian village of Baghouz, where they are making their last stand, despite being surrounded by Kurdish-led Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) and facing inevitable defeat, The Hill reported on Monday.
The SDF's top commander commented on the situation, saying that Baghouz is one of the few remaining areas that are controlled by Daesh.
"In a very short time, not longer than a few days, we will officially announce the end of IS's [Daesh in Arabic] existence," he said, according to The Express Tribune.
This comes after on Saturday head of the Kurdish-led Syrian Democratic Forces’ (SDF) Media Center Mustafa Bali told Sputnik that the remaining fighters from the Daesh terrorist group were entrenched in a small area of Baghouz.
