Terror Group ISIS Completely Defeated With Liberation of Baghouz, Syria

Published

on

Islamic State (ISIS) has been completely defeated at its last standing territory in Baghouz in Syria, the US-backed Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) stated on Saturday, declaring the end of its self-declared ‘caliphate’ that once spanned a third of Iraq and Syria.

“Baghouz has been liberated. The military victory against the Islamic State has been accomplished,” Mustafa Bali, head of the SDF media office, wrote on Twitter. The SDF has been battling to capture Baghouz at the Iraqi border for weeks.

“We renew our pledge to continue the war and to pursue their remnants until their complete elimination,” he wrote.

Who Funds and Trains the Islamic State or ISIS?

Though the defeat of Islamic State at Baghouz ends the group’s grip over the militant quasi-state straddling Syria and Iraq that it declared in 2014, it remains a threat.

Some of its fighters still hold out in Syria’s remote central desert and in Iraqi cities they have slipped into the shadows, staging sudden shootings or kidnappings and awaiting a chance to rise again.

The United States believes the group’s leader, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, is in Iraq. He stood at the pulpit of the great medieval mosque in Mosul in 2014 to declare himself caliph, sovereign over all Muslims.
