Trump promises announcement on eradication of ISIS within ‘24 hours’

President Donald Trump on Friday said the United States would be announcing the end of the ISIS in Syria within the next day.

“We have a lot of great announcements having to do with Syria and our success with the eradication of the caliphate and that will be announced over the next 24 hours,” Trump told reporters at the White House Friday.

The US-backed Syrian Democratic Forces have been closing in on holdout extremists since September last year and a few hundred surviving ISIS members are now boxed into an area of around one square kilometer (less than half a square mile).
