Hundreds surrender as Islamic State nears defeat in last enclave
Rodi Said



BAGHOUZ, Syria (Reuters) - Islamic State faced imminent defeat in its final enclave on Tuesday as hundreds of jihadist fighters and their families surrendered and the U.S.-backed Syrian Democratic Forces said the battle was as good as over.

A Reuters journalist in Baghouz saw hundreds of people surrendering to the SDF, which launched its final attack to capture Baghouz on Sunday, backed by U.S.-led international coalition air strikes after weeks of siege.

The enclave is the last shred of territory held by the jihadists who have been driven from roughly one third of Iraq and Syria over the past four years.

Islamic State, surrendering? Only to get out of being shot,go elsewhere, and start this sh*t again.

There is only one way to prevent that.

It's called "hudna". Ancient islamic tactic.

"There is only one way to prevent that."

Agreed, and I proposed that here in this forum some time ago.
"No surrender" for isis soldiers.
