Final 3000 ISIS Members Surrender in Syria, Sealing Trump’s Victory
Thousands of terrorists along with family members were caught in the ISIS encampment
Around 3000 members of the Islamic State terrorist group have surrendered in Baghouz, Syria, according to Kurdish-led forces per AFP.
Thousands of terrorists along with family members were caught in the ISIS encampment in the eastern village as it came under fire.
"Number of Daesh (IS) members surrendered to us since yesterday evening has risen to 3,000," Syrian Democratic Forces spokesman Mustefa Bali tweeted Tuesday evening.
US-led Kurdish forces fired on Baghouz for three nights in a row killing fighters and causing survivors to surrender.
Unit commander with the U.S.-backed Syria Defense Forces Ali Cheir said they hoped they could flush out ISIS from the terrorism.
"The objective of our advance is to terrorize IS fighters, so they surrender, and for the civilians to come out," said Cheir.
According to a report from FT last month, President Donald Trump announced that “100 percent” Isis territory in Syria has been recaptured, claiming a 'military victory.'
Trump told troops at an air base in Alaska that Isis had been taken.
“We now have the whole thing,” he said of the land held by Isis.
