Extremists defending the very last pocket controlled by ISIS in eastern Syria are trapped in an area of half a square kilometer, a top commander said Saturday.

“We want to confirm that Baghouz is within firing range and is besieged,” Jia Furat, the overall commander of the operation led by the US-backed Syrian Democratic Forces, told reporters.

“These days, ISIS is besieged in a neighborhood that is estimated to be 700 meters long and 700 meters wide,” he said.

On Saturday, Vice-President Mike Pence vowed the US would “hunt down” ISIS even after pulling its troops out of Syria, where the extremists are facing the loss of their final scrap of land.
