Support SouthFront

The remaining ISIS fighters in the middle Euphrates River Valley began to burn their weapons and ammunition on March 10 in a move which indicates that they are planning to surrender.

According to the Kurdish Hawar News Agency (ANHA), thick black smoke is covering the last terrorist group’s stronghold north of al-Baghuz al-Fawqani and explosions can be heard around the town.

“The flames are raising from al-Baghuz, the sounds of explosions are breaking the silence over al-Baghuz every now and then,” ANHA’s reporter said.

In the last 24 hours, 220 people left the ISIS-held pocket, including at least 130 fighters of ISIS, according to the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights (SOHR). The monitoring group said that more terrorists are preparing to surrender to the US-backed Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF).

A spokesman for the SDF had told Reuters that the group will resume its final attack on ISIS on March 9. However, the remaining fighters continued to surrender which led to the extension of the ceasefire.

Now the remaining terrorists are apparently preparing to surrender, which means that the SDF could announce the liberation of the Euphrates Valley within a few days only.

How bizarre that these guys are choosing to surrender and not fight to the death?

Leon Auguste

Please don’t say that.. they may change their minds again

Zionism = EVIL

No chance of that. These criminals are too cowardly to change their empty minds. The need a bullet to the head which will simply pass through unobstructed.


Some imam has been talking to them and convincing that their re-deployment somewhere else on the globe by USA/CIA is in accord with their vow to found the Islamic State or die. Perhaps we’ll see them in Colombian border soon.

Somebody told them that they could file suit in international courts for unpaid back wages.

Zionism = EVIL

Seriously, you expect them to fight like men? these are headchopping Wahhabi pigs who are only good at raping and subjugating women and children, destroying ancient artifacts and chopping off heads and limbs, these are worthless cowards to their criminal Wahhabi core. Most are convicted criminals and rapists from Saudi and Emirati jails. These vile beasts need to shot on sight.

Well they obviously need help carrying all that gold so going to ask SDF/US if they can help.
