Chiya Firat of the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) declared victory over IS (IS; formerly ISIS/ISIL) during a brief statement given atop a battle-damaged building flying a large SDF flag in Baghouz on Saturday.
“This victory is a tiding for Kurds, Arabs, Assyrians, and all the nations in this world. We finished our Jazirah storm operation here in Baghouz Camp. We finished ISIS, they are done. We made this victory to all the people in the world,” Firat said.
