Another batch of ISIS terrorists surrendered themselves to the US-backed Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) after leaving Baghuz, the last ISIS-held village in eastern Deir Ezzor.
The surrender came after a brief pause in the clashes between ISIS and the SDF which gave the terrorists 24 hours to lay down their arms before resuming the offensive supported by the US-led International Coalition.
Around 3000 fighters along with their wives and children have surrendered during the 24-hour-long pause, according to SDF spokesman Mustafa Bali.
Previous estimates put the number of ISIS terrorists remaining in Baghuz at several hundreds. However, almost ten thousands people, including women and children, have left the village during the past few weeks, raising the question whether the actual number of people remaining in the area is much higher than expected.
