Final ISIS Stronghold Liberated, Islamic State ‘Has Officially Crumbled’

American-backed forces liberated the last territory controlled by ISIS-fighters Thursday; ending a “brutal empire” that at its peak ruled over eight million people across the Middle East.

“The caliphate has crumbled, and the final offensive is over. While the official announcement hasn’t yet been made – Fox News has been told that this village, the last ISIS stronghold, is liberated,” reports Fox News.

“It’s the first time since we’ve been here in Syria for five days that the bombs have stopped dropping and the gunfire has disappeared. We have witnessed the end of the caliphate – the brutal empire that once ruled over 8 million people – is gone,” adds the article. “Troops here are now bringing down the black flags of ISIS. The flags no longer fly over the town, instilling fear.”
