400 Daesh* fighters who attempted to flee from their remaining Syrian stronghold were captured on Wednesday; at the same time, hundreds of others surrendered themselves, a US-backed Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) senior commander said.
The hundreds of terrorists who surrendered abandoned Baghouz as part of an evacuation that included civilians.
On the same day, SDF Press Office chief Mustafa Bali announced in a Twitter post that the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) began a final assault on the Syrian city of Baghouz, the last stronghold of the Daesh terror group in the country.
Earlier reports stated that the Kurdish-led Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) were clearing the village of Baghouz, which is considered the last settlement in Syria controlled by the Daesh terror group, from terrorists.
