Syria, Isis has definitely lost the war against the SDF in Deir Ezzor

Isis has definitely lost the war against the SDF in Deir Ezzor. Jazeera Storm conquers the last strip of land held by the Islamic State in Baghouz

Isis has definitely lost the war against the SDF in Syria. It has been confirmed by an official announcement. Jazeera Storm troops in the past few hours, as US President Donald Trump announced earlier, launched the final attack against the last jihadists of the Islamic State. These were besieged in a strip of land in Baghouz, tired, injured, sick and undernourished. The terrorists resisted but were quickly annihilated. This concludes, after 5 years, the dream of the Caliphate (it was announced by Abu Bakr Al-Baghdadi in Raqqa on 29 June 2014) and the dominion of Daesh in the Middle Eastern country. In the area there are still some pockets of the militia, hidden in the underground tunnels, but all the IS surface forces have been defeated. Furthermore, the Arab-Kurdish fighters have begun to penetrate the tunnels to stop them too.

The dream of the Caliphate of Al-Baghdadi lasted just five years. The first defeats for Daesh began to arrive already in 2015

Isis was present in Syria as early as 2013, within the Al-Nusra Front. The following year it split from the formation linked to Al-Qaeda and became independent under the leadership of Al-Baghdadi. From the proclamation of the Caliphate, the Islamic State began to gain ground both in the country and in neighbouring Iraq. Then, it extended his influence to Libya, Yemen and Afghanistan. However, since 2015, defeats began in the Middle East thanks to the intervention of the International Coalition. This originally consisted of 14 members, arrived today at 79. The end of Daesh began in Iraq in Tikrit (March-April 2015) and then in Baiji, Sinjar, Ramadi and Falluja. In March 2017 Palmyra fell in Syria and in August Mosul. Later it was the turn of Raqqa (October 17), Deir Ezzor, Rawa and Qaim (November). Finally, between 2018 and 2019, SDF gradually conquered the entire Middle Euphrates River Valley (MERV).
