Members of the Syrian Democratic Army raised the yellow flag of the organization in the village of Baguz and declared victory. Abdul Karim Umayr, the head of foreign affairs of this organization, said that this is a long-awaited "historic moment".

The Syrian Democratic Army attacked the "Islamic State" in the province of Deir ez-Zor in September last year, including the main stronghold of Bagus Village, which launched a "final strike" in early February this year. The Associated Press reported that after several weeks of intense fighting, the tent camps of the "Islamic State" armed personnel were destroyed, leaving abandoned trenches, cratered fields and distorted cars. The fragments of the black flag of this organization were buried in the mud. in.

The "Islamic State" began to attack the city in Iraq in the summer of 2014 and once entered the capital Baghdad.

The "Syrian Democratic Army" was formed in 2015. It is based on the "People's Protection Force" of the Kurdish armed forces. It accepts US military assistance and cooperates with the US forces in Syria to combat the "Islamic State."

Despite the loss of the final stronghold, the security threat of the “Islamic State” still exists, and some remnants are lurking in the desert or eastern part of Syria. Many armed men have guerrilla combat capabilities and may be waiting for an attack.

Agence France-Presse reported that some armed men who left the so-called "caliphate" reorganized their forces and returned to their previous nest in Iraq.

The General Command of the Syrian Democratic Army said on the 22nd that this organization will continue to advance military operations to eliminate the remnants of the "Islamic State." Umayr, the head of foreign affairs, said that taking the village of Baguz does not mean ending the "Islamic State" and terrorism; the "Islamic State" has potential for stagnation, not to mention the fact that the region that has been in control for many years has an extremist ideology.

John Spencer, a scholar at the Institute of Modern Warfare of the US Army Academy, said that the so-called "caliphate country" in the geographical sense was disintegrated, and the "Islamic State" was far from collapse.

The Iraqi government announced in December 2017 that it would defeat the "Islamic State." The Iranian action against this organization lasted for more than three years. During this period, the death of Baghdadi, the head of the "Islamic State", was repeatedly reported, but it has not been confirmed. Reuters reported that the US government determined that he is still hiding in Iraq.

In addition, there is no indication that the “Islamic State” branch in countries such as Afghanistan and Nigeria intends to abandon its loyalty to the organization, and some intelligence agencies are concerned that its followers will continue to launch attacks.
