New Airstrikes Target Last Islamic State Enclave

Coalition warplanes launched new airstrikes against the last remaining enclave of the Islamic State terror group’s self-declared caliphate after efforts to evacuate additional civilians stalled.

The strikes, accompanied by artillery fire, targeted the outskirts of the final piece of IS-held territory in the eastern Syrian village of Baghuz on Thursday, a day after 2,000 civilians were evacuated from the area.
