Washington: The US Defense Department on Friday confirmed that the Islamic State does not have a territory anymore in Syria. This development was briefed to the US President Donald Trump while he was on his way to Florida by Air Force One, reported news agency Reuters.

Meanwhile, White House press secretary Sarah Sanders reportedly showed the 2014 maps of Islamic State territory vis-a-vis the maps of the same place in Syria.

On Friday, Trump tweeted, “ISIS uses the internet better than almost anyone, but for all of those susceptible to ISIS propaganda, they are now being beaten badly at every level.”

He added, “There is nothing to admire about them, they will always try to show a glimmer of vicious hope, but they are losers and barely breathing. Think about that before you destroy your lives and the lives of your family!”
