ISIS stranglehold on the Middle East starting to crumble as hundreds of troops are surrending due to having no food or money

The ISIS stranglehold on the Middle East is quickly starting to crumble after an American General revealed over the weekend that the terrorist group is running out of money and food.

The announcement comes in a week were the terrorist group surrendered one of its major strongholds in Hawijia, Iraq.

Reports say the group and it’s hundreds of soldiers who have wreaked devastation and destruction in the region were forced to bow down to Kurdish forces after they ran out of food and money.

The US general also claims hundreds of fighters are being abandoned by their leaders as they are failing to occupy regions which are being quickly reclaimed by opposition forces as each passing day goes by.

Speaking to USA Today the high profile General said: “The speed at which the enemy gave up surprised me.” “They’re coming out with their hands up, putting their weapons down, it’s full scale surrender.”

“It’s a growing trend. Hawija was one of Isis’ last strongholds, Intel tells us the group’s leaders have ‘abandoned’ followers.”

He added: “We are constantly hearing is, ‘our leaders have abandoned us’, we haven’t been fed, we haven’t been paid.”

The General’s comments are seemingly well supported as it has been revealed over the few months by other foreign military services that ISIS troops are starting to lose ground as they lost a number of key strongholds to opposition forces who have overpowered them given their vast resources and their strategic advantage.
