    Local media sources denied the surrender of Daesh fighters in the camp of Baghouz, in the suburb of Deir Ezzor, the last enclave of the organisation in Syria.

    Euphrates Post news network said the news circulated about the surrender of remaining fighters of the Islamic State are false, and negotiations are still going on with 400 fighters and their families in order to surrender to the International Coalition's forces.

    In the same context, around 40 trucks carrying hundreds of women, children and numbers of Daesh fighters, left the Baghouz camp towards the areas controlled by Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF).

    Meanwhile, Mustafa Bali, an official in the SDF, said that the evacuation of civilians from the last pocket of "Daesh" in eastern Syria is expected to be completed today, and that the forces will then clash with the remaining fighters of the organization hiding there.
