‘There will be blood up to your knees’: Defiant jihadi bride refugees vow revenge as last outpost of their Syrian ‘caliphate’ faces defeat by Kurdish forces amid fears there are THOUSANDS of brainwashed ISIS followers in the camps

  • US-backed forces have forced the militants into the last scrap of land as they are pushed out of the ‘caliphate’  
  • The coalition forces have been hoping that each day would be the last for ISIS but doubts have now emerged
  • 12,000 people from Baghouz arrived in one camp for non-combatants in northern Syria in the past 48 hours
  • Head of US Central Command, warned many of those evacuating are ‘unrepentant, unbroken and radicalised’

Diehard jihadists swelling Syrian refugee camps have vowed revenge as the last remaining ISIS holdout in Syria faced imminent collapse.

One veiled woman, feared to be among thousands of unrepentant fanatics who have fled Baghouz and surrendered to US-backed Kurdish forces, chillingly warned: ‘We will seek vengeance, there will be blood up to your knees.

‘We have left, but there will be new conquests in the future.’

The civilians have continued to stream out of the ragged tent encampment the village of Baghouz since December.

As they came out of their bastion in eastern Syria, many civilians are unrepentant and promise bloody vengeance against the enemies of ISIS.  A veiled woman is pictured walking towards a screening point as hundreds of civilians, who streamed out of the Islamic State group's last Syrian stronghold, arrive in an area run by US-backed Syrian Democratic Forces outside Baghouz in the eastern Syria

The US-backed Kurdish coalition forces thought only a few families remained in the enclave –  but they now fear they may have severely underestimated the number of brainwashed ISIS followers left inside.

Interesting pic’s here!

The Islamic State’s Caliphate — which once included large portions of Iraq and Syria — may be a strategic defeat for ISIS, yet the jihadi terrorist group is very much alive
New battle looms for Islamic State’s last Syria enclave 

How long have they been telling us that?

DEIR AL-ZOR PROVINCE, Syria (Reuters) – U.S-backed fighters will resume their assault on Islamic State’s last, small patch of ground in eastern Syria if no more civilians come out by Saturday afternoon, one of their spokesmen said on Friday.

In the foreseeable future, ISIS, because of its loss of a territorial Caliphate, will likely limit its battlefield operations to guerrilla warfare. Nevertheless, the overall thrust of ISIS propaganda will probably remain oriented to appeal to young male Muslims who feel isolated or are searching for meaning in life.

The disintegration of the Islamic State’s Caliphate — which once included large portions of Iraq and Syria — may be a strategic defeat for ISIS, yet the jihadi terrorist group is very much alive. Its ideology, tactics and objectives have not altered. ISIS remains steeped in the ideology of “salafiya jihadiyah” (Salafi jihad), which requires every Muslim to wage “holy war” in some fashion against the “infidel.”

Humbug:

…the notion of jihad is much broader than simply that of “war”. It is first and foremost in Islam taken as religion and as civilisation – a virtue. In its military sense, it is generally seen as defensive, as is also the case for both its religious meaning and its cultural development.

A parallel can be drawn with the notion of “lawful war” in Europe. Though there is one significant difference, at least in religious terms – Islam adds an element of personal ethics.

We must ensure that, on the pretext of condemning the crimes falsely committed under the flag of jihad, we do not grant exclusivity to those very groups who are staining it.

DEIR AL-ZOR PROVINCE, Syria (Reuters) – U.S-backed fighters will resume their assault on Islamic State’s last, small patch of ground in eastern Syria if no more civilians come out by Saturday afternoon, one of their spokesmen said on Friday.

The Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) have slowed their offensive on the jihadist enclave at Baghouz near the Iraqi border to allow many thousands of people to pour out in an exodus that has lasted weeks.

A month ago the SDF launched what it called a “final battle” to take the cluster of houses and farmland, and people leaving the enclave have described harrowing conditions of peril and hardship.

The SDF said a week ago that it believed all civilians had come out and renewed its assault, leading to a new surge of displacement, including obdurate disciples of Islamic State, some of its captives and hundreds of surrendering fighters.

A Yazidi woman who emerged on Thursday spoke of years of enslavement and abuse by the jihadists. Two Iraqi boys who came out with her, pretending to be her brothers, said many fighters remained dug into tunnels in Baghouz.

However, the head of the SDF media center, Mustafa Bali, said no more people had emerged on Friday.

“We are waiting for tomorrow morning or perhaps until the afternoon, we’ll give another space, for the possibility that civilians are present and the chance to get them out,” he said.

After that, “if no civilian or terrorist comes out, we will launch our military operation anew.”

The capture of Baghouz will mark the end of Islamic State’s territorial rule over populated areas of Iraq and Syria, and the culmination of a U.S.-backed military campaign waged by the SDF for four years.

After suddenly seizing swathes of land straddling the Iraqi-Syrian border in 2014 and declaring it their caliphate, Islamic State were beaten back by numerous local and foreign forces in both countries, suffering major defeats in 2017.

However, the jihadists remain a menace. In Iraq they have gone to ground, staging waves of killings and kidnappings. In Syria, their comrades hold out in remote desert areas and have carried out bombings in areas controlled by the SDF.

Those who have fled Baghouz have mostly gone to al-Hol, a displacement camp in northeast Syria whose population has swelled to 62,000 people, 90 percent of them women and children.
