Watch below the surrender of ISIS.

A spokesman for the US-backed Syrian Democratic Forces said hundreds of ISIS fighters have surrendered while leaving the last stronghold of ISIS in Baghuz, located in eastern Syria.

In the last 24 hours, 6,600 people, most of them civilians, were evacuated in a corridor created by the SDF. To date, 30,000 people from Baghuz and the surrounding areas have been evacuated (including ISIS members).

Although SDF forces have defeated ISIS in Baghuz, the terror group still controls a few pockets of land in central Syria and are able to launch sporadic guerrilla attacks from these areas.

The SDF has been able to slow down the frequency of these attacks but not eradicate them altogether, since the terror group is heavily embedded within the civilian population.

Most of the ISIS foreign fighters in these areas have been in Syria or Iraq for more than four years. To date, there have been no serious steps taken by their countries of origin to take them back.

The following is video footage of surrendered ISIS fighters and their wives and children being evacuated. The husbands of these women in the video have denied any connection to ISIS.

Comments by the women themselves show they are still highly radicalized supporters of ISIS:
