BREAKING NOW: Final ISIS Stronghold Liberated, Islamic State 'Has Officially Crumbled'

Where ISIS is in the world

On Wednesday, President Trump took the opportunity to show the world pictorially just how far the US and its allies have come in the effort against ISIS over the past two years alone.

SDF fighters walked unarmed in a wasteland of mangled vehicles on the camp's outskirts. The sheer number who emerged - almost 30,000 since early January, according to Kurdish officials - took the SDF by surprise.

"We are giving them a chance to surrender by slowing the military offensive", he said.

Associated Press journalists saw SDF soldiers loading women and children into trailer trucks on the hilltop over Baghouz, in a sign evacuations were ongoing Wednesday.

The SDF advance has been slowed by the number of women and children that have streamed out of ISIS-controlled areas since the bombardment started.

They include 37,000 civilians, 5,000 jihadists and around 24,000 of their relatives.

Super moon wows around the world
The last time these two things happened on the same day was March 1981. The closest supermoon this year was in February.

Thousands of people who have streamed out of the last ISIS stronghold now fill overcrowded camps and prisons run by the Kurds further north.

For the SDF, it would cap a four-year, USA -led military campaign in which its fighters drove ISIS from swathes of northeastern Syria, taking the city of Raqqa after a months-long battle in 2017.

"There have now been at least 138 deaths on the way to al Hol or soon after arriving at the camp since early December". "As soon as we are done, we will announce the liberation" of Baghouz, he added.

While holding maps of ISIS' territory in Iraq and Syria before and after his election, Trump pointed to a very small portion of the map that was now being held by the terrorist group. For the past four years, USA -led forces have waged a destructive campaign against the group.

French Foreign Minister Jean-Yves Le Drain, whose country has participated in the campaign, said he expected the announcement of the "final territorial defeat" to be made in the "next few days".

Syria's war has killed more than 370,000 people and displaced millions since it began with the repression of anti-government protests in 2011.
