Isis releases video of fighters in Baghuz as Kurdish forces advance

Islamic State fighters have released a video from the Syrian town of Baghuz, saying “tomorrow we will be in paradise” and urging their followers to remain steadfast as Kurdish forces edge towards the pocket of ruins that shelters the remaining Isis diehards.

The video is one of few released by the militant group in recent months and attempts to depict the holdouts as composed and resilient in the face of a five-year war that is now in its final days.

Tomorrow you’ll be in hell.
