The extremists once controlled large parts of Syria and Iraq, but now thousands of them have handed themselves in. Kurdish-led units reported some IS fighters were continuing to resist

Some 3,000 members of the “Islamic State” (IS) have left the group’s last holdout in Syria to surrender to  Kurdish-led forces.

“The number of ISIS members who have surrendered to us has risen to 3,000,” Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) spokesman Mustefa Bali has said.

The SDF temporarily halted airstrikes and shelling on IS-controlled Baghouz in eastern Syria to allow people to leave the village to hand themselves over.SDF forces, which are backed by a US-led coalition, have been bombarding Baghouz since last Sunday.
