We have been reporting here on the final push against ISIS territory in Syria, amid talk from the president that he wants US troops out of Syria.
Tonight, ISIS is pushing back, releasing new video of their assault on those US-backed Kurdish troops.
The so-called ISIS caliphate may be dying, but its fighters are clinging on tonight.
Their propaganda shows them hitting their targets.
But their celebrations sound desperate as they struggle to hold onto the town of Baghouz, the last ISIS-held village in war-ravaged Syria.
With the so-called caliphate on its last legs, people here in refugee camps like this will be hoping they can go home.
But what will they go home to?
This may be the end of the battle with ISIS for now, but it’s not the end of the organization.

最終局面を迎えたシリアでのIS掃討作戦
大統領は米軍の撤退に言及した
そのISが 米軍が支援する部隊を攻撃する動画を公開した
ひん死の状態のISだが兵士は諦めていない
動画の中で標的を撃破

ここは国内で最後の支配地なのだ
ISが壊滅寸前になり難民は家に戻れると期待するが—
何が待ち受けるのだろうか 戦いは終わっても組織は生きている
