2,000 more people quit ISIS Syria pocket, SDF military source says

DEIR AL-ZOR PROVINCE, Syria - More than 2,000 people were evacuated on Wednesday from Islamic State's last pocket in eastern Syria at Baghouz, said a military source in the US-backed Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) which is besieging the area.
More than 6,500 people were evacuated over the previous 24 hours, including hundreds of surrendering jihadist fighters, a spokesman for the SDF said on Tuesday, after the militia had slowed its assault to let out more civilians.
