March 15, 2019

The United States says that the Islamic State is down to its last few hundred fighters and less than a square kilometer of land in a battle for its final Syrian stronghold.

 

 

U.S. Special Representative for Syria Engagement and Special Envoy to the Global Coalition to Defeat Dash James Jeffrey said today we are just about finished with the campaign along the Euphrates to defeat the last territorial holdings of Daesh.

Jeffrey said the United States is helping the Syrian Democratic Forces in Syria to secure IS prisoners but was also launching a campaign to get countries to take back foreign fighters and their families, to prosecute or re-educate them.
