LONDON – President Donald Trump urged European countries to take back captive Islamic statemen at the end of Saturday when US-backed Syria forces closed extremist group's last sliver of territory.

"The United States asks Britain, France, Germany and other European allies to take back over 800 ISIS warriors that we captured in Syria and tested them." Trump said Twitter .

"The caliphate is ready to fall," he added.

After years of global efforts to fight the group, the US-backed Syrian democratic forces have cornered the remaining militants in a village near the Iraqi border, under fire from all sides.

The final assault has been extended because ISIS warriors have used civilians as human shields, said SDF spokesman Mustafa Bali to NBC News.

"Over the next few days, we will spread the good news to the world of the military end of Daesh," he said Saturday using the Arab acronym for Islamic state.
