White House: ISIS Held Territory In Syria Has Been '100 Per Cent Eliminated

Daily Mail: All ISIS-held territory in Syria has been '100 per cent eliminated,' White House claims — but Trump insists the group's 'propaganda' still litters the Internet

* White House claims all ISIS-held territory in Syria has been '100% eliminated'
* Syrian Democratic Forces have been battling ISIS militants hiding in Baghouz
* Last remaining jihadists were said to be holed up in caves along the Euphrates
* They were also hiding in trenches as war planes carried out raids against ISIS

All ISIS-held territory in Syria has been '100%' eliminated, the White House said Friday, but President Donald Trump is still warning that the once-strong terror army is still a danger online.

Acting Defense Secretary Patrick Shanahan briefed Trump about developments on the ground, according to White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders.
