SDF: Dozens of ISIS fighters killed in Syria’s Baghouz

The US-backed Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) have so far killed 38 ISIS fighters as part of their long-awaited push to capture Baghouz, the final Islamic State enclave on Syrian territory. The assault had been planned for a while, but was repeatedly postponed to allow for the evacuation of civilians from the area.
