    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.

    "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.
