BEIRUT, LEBANON (11:30 P.M.) – A large number of Islamic State (ISIS/ISIL/IS/Daesh) fighters surrendered themselves to the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) over the last 24 hours, a new report from eastern Syria read.

According to the report, over 500 Islamic State fighters turned surrendered to the Syrian Democratic Forces near the Baghouz Camp in eastern Deir Ezzor.

In addition to the ISIS fighters that surrendered, at least 16 civilians were reportedly freed by the SDF on Thursday.

Among the 16 civilians freed by the SDF on Thursday, two were Yazidi women and their four children.

With nowhere to retreat, the remaining Islamic State fighters will either have to fight till the death, attempt to escape, or surrender to the SDF.
