Fleeing jihadi brides say last remnants of ISIS ‘caliphate’ are a ‘catastrophic’ hell as evacuation of civilians ends

Fleeing jihadi brides say the last remnants of the ISIS ‘caliphate’ are a ‘catastrophic’ hell as the evacuation of civilians will be halted today ahead of a final battle.

One woman described how the town of Baghouz in eastern Syria was subjected to constant bombings and fires, ‘you would wake up and everything was destroyed.’

More than 7,000 – mostly women and children, as well as some suspected ISIS fighters – have been packed out of the town in the last two days.
