BEIRUT, LEBANON (5:45 P.M.) – The Islamic State (ISIS/ISIL/IS/Daesh) launched arguably their last counter-offensive to regain the territory they lost to the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) in the Baghouz area of eastern Deir Ezzor.

Backed by nearly 100 women and children, the Islamic State stormed the Syrian Democratic Forces’ positions at the northern flank of the Baghouz Camp in a bid to force the latter to retreat from several areas.

According to preliminary reports, the Syrian Democratic Forces did retreat from some points after losing a half dozen fighters on Monday.

The reports said the Syrian Democratic Forces saw many women and children dressed in their combat fatigues attacking their points during today’s battle.

The Syrian Democratic Forces will likely counter this Islamic State offensive in the coming hours as they hammer away at the terrorist group’s last bastion with both airstrikes and heavy artillery.

Due to their shortage of fighters, the Islamic State has begun using women and children at the front-lines to help defend their last positions at the Baghouz Camp.

The Islamic State had previously prohibited women from fighting at any of their front-lines; however, due to a shortage in manpower and provisions, they have made an exception to this rule.

Isis supremacists have used OTHERS children and women as cannon fodder, human shields, and suicide bombers. Numerous Isis cubs have slaughtered prisoners. Ditto for rebels etc. Isis women likely have partook in violence prior to this “last stand”. We have had numerous reports by s*x slaves and prisoners stating ISIS women are worse than the men. Currently they are verbally abusive, threatening violence, and committing arson at refugee camps. guards are reported afraid of the so called women. I am surprised more are not on the front lines but fled like cowards. I suppose they are like their men, making… Read more »

Will those females go to h**l for being deessed in man clothes and for showing their hair, provoking sexual lust among IS and SDF fighters?

Karel, isis are hypocrites. They create harsh draconian rules for others and flexible rules for isis members. Isis police women have physically tortured women for not wearing the “right Burka”. Clearly they do not practice what they preach and are not pious by any standard. Sure they have limited brainwashed suicide bombes but as this last stand demonstrates the overwhelming majority surrender or cut and run. Nothing new here.
