US-backed Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) are in full control of the enclave of Islamic State guerrillas in Baghouz village in northern Syria, near the Iraqi border, but the operation has not yet been completed. said Mustafa Bali an SDFt press officer.
Some jihadists are still in a small area on the banks of the Euphrates River and have not yet been surrendered, explained Bali in a statement distributed to reporters.
“We do not know whether they will resist or not,” he said, adding that the conflicts in Baghouz continue, with ISIS guerrillas still keeping some families as human shields. However, Bali stressed that the remaining Jihadists would be defeated “very soon”.
