The Last Stronghold of ISIS: Can Love Win? Part 2 of 4

26 March 2018

Bagouz, Syria


Dear friends,

Here is the second episode of our four-part video series that shows our recent mission to Bagouz, Syria. These episodes are a video-log of our days spent there and so they show the reality of the war against ISIS. Some people may not want to view this video as it contains graphic depictions of true suffering experienced by children, women, and men in the midst of war, including serious physical injuries. We use photos and video of our missions to raise awareness of what is really happening in places like Burma, Iraq, and Syria, even though it can be hard to see. If you want to know more about our recent mission but do not want to watch the video, please visit our website to read our written reports.

Bagouz was the last stronghold of ISIS and has now fallen thanks to the hard work of the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) and coalition forces. While we were there, more than 27,000 people fled the area. We were able to feed 25,000 people and treated over 4,000 who were wounded. These were ISIS families fleeing and we prayed with as many as we could, telling them that there was a better way forward. Thank you for all your prayers and support.

God bless you,

Dave, family, and the Free Burma Rangers
