February 11, 2019 -- Fuerzas dirigidas por los kurdos y apoyadas por EUA comenzaron la que podría ser la última batalla contra milicianos del llamado Estado Islámico (EI) en Siria, tras una campaña de cinco meses para liberar el valle del Río Éufrates del grupo yihadista

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.
