BEIRUT, LEBANON (3:40 P.M.) – At least 50 Islamic State (ISIS) terrorists reportedly surrendered to the the US-backed Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) in the eastern countryside of the Deir Ezzor Governorate in the past 48 hours.

According to local observers, at least 50 Islamic State militants surrendered themselves to the Syrian Democratic Forces after the latter advanced on Hajjin, which is the terrorist group’s Euphrates stronghold.

Over the past 72 hours, the Syrian Democratic Forces have been steadily advancing in the eastern part of the Euphrates River Valley, while eliminating several hideouts and trenches that belonged to the Islamic State terrorists.

If the Syrian Democratic Forces are successful in this military endeavor to capture Hajjin, it will force the remaining Islamic State terrorists to surrender their remaining areas in the Euphrates River Valley.

However, it should be noted that the Islamic State has managed to repel all of the Syrian Democratic Forces’ previous attacks on Hajjin and the key town of Baghouz Al-Fouqani.

It appears the US-backed forces have recently shifted their attention to Hajjin after failing take control of Baghouz Al-Fouqani, which is located at the southern part of the Islamic State’s pocket.

IS surrendering to partners can only mean to Turkey, their BFF, who will then put them in rebranded HTS or TFSA groups.

Yes Ray, it seems so. I guess that their flight tickets to Afghanistan have arrived with their new uniforms etc 🙂

Several sources claim some 10k IS fighters in the pocket. More than defended Raqqah. Not surprising it take both time, resources and losses to flush them out.
