Civilians fleeing the Islamic State’s group embattled holdout of Baghouz walk

Civilians fleeing the Islamic State’s group embattled holdout of Baghouz walk in a field on Wednesday during an operation by the US-backed Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) to expel the Islamic State group from the area, in the eastern Syrian province of Deir Ezzor. Syrian fighters backed by artillery fire from a US-led coalition battled a fierce jihadist counteroffensive as they pushed to retake a last morsel of territory from the Islamic State group in an assault lasting days.    —AFP PHOTO
