Syrian Democratic Forces declared a 'total elimination' of the jihadist group on Saturday morning after flushing out suicidal jihadists from the holdout in Baghouz, eastern Syria.
The terrorist group's bloody last stand saw male and female fanatics hiding in caves as US-backed forces rained down an overnight barrage on Thursday.
The world's most wanted man Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, who declared himself the tyrant of the regime in 2014, was apparently not among their number.
Desperate jihadists deployed females with AK-47s at their bloody defeat.
