ISIS defeated at final enclave -Syrian Kurdish media

The U.S.-backed Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) have seized all of ISIS' final enclave at Baghouz, Syrian Kurdish news outlet Hawar reported on Thursday, defeating the jihadists after a weeks-long battle.

Citing its correspondents, Hawar said the SDF had "liberated all of Baghouz from the ISIS mercenaries" and with that the campaign had "ended with the defeat of ISIS and the victory of the SDF". ISIS is an Arabic acronym for Islamic State.

Reuters could not immediately reach SDF officials for comment.
