FIRST IMAGES of SDF forces in liberated ISIS camp near Baghouz, Syria

FIRST IMAGES of SDF forces in liberated ISIS camp near Baghouz, Syria
Footage filmed near Baghouz on Tuesday, shows Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) patrolling in the last self-proclaimed Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS/ISIL) camp, which was liberated by the SDF following intense fighting.

The US-backed SDF say they have seized full control of a camp where IS militants have been holed up in Baghouz near the Iraqi border. However, the operation is not yet over, an SDF media official said on Tuesday.

Some IS militants were still confined to a tiny area on the bank of the Euphrates River and had yet to surrender, the official said, according to Reuters. Clashes are still ongoing in the final IS enclave and the jihadists are holding some families as human shields, the official said.
