President Trump promised to decimate ISIS, and he’s keeping to his word.

The Pentagon on Tuesday says it killed 150 ISIS fighters in an airstrike in eastern Syria, while the U.S. federal government was shut down Saturday.

The airstrike took in one of the last remaining pockets of ISIS control along the Euphrates River near the border between Syria and Iraq, according to a statement from U.S. Central Command, responsible for American forces in the Middle East.

While ISIS has lost 98 percent of its territory, the remaining 2 percent held by the terror group includes an area around the Syrian city of Al-Shaafah, where the strike took place.  Top U.S. military officials believe the head of ISIS, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, is hiding in the area.
