Graphic News

February 11, 2019 --
Kurdische Truppen mit US Unterstützung haben den mutmaßlich letzten Kampf gegen den sogenannten Islamischen Staat angefangen. Seit fünf Monaten bemühen sie sich das Tal des Euphrat von den Jihadisten zu befreien.

The assault on Baghouz Tahtani, on the eastern bank of the Euphrates, began on Saturday night. It came after the evacuation of more than 20,000 civilians over the past two weeks. Many of them are suspected fighters or the wives and children of IS fighters.

Estimates of the number of fighters remaining in Baghouz Tahtani vary from 400 to 600 and are thought to include some of the most die-hard and committed extremists who have stayed with the group to the bitter end.

Syrian Democratic Forces forces entered the villages of Shajilah and Baghuz Fawqani on January 23.
