BEIRUT, LEBANON (12:45 A.M.) – The US-backed Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) have reportedly captured the strategic town of Baghouz Fouqani in southeastern countryside of Deir Ezzor this evening.

According to local activists, the Syrian Democratic Forces, in coordination with the French and U.S. armies, managed to score a major breakthrough in southeast Deir Ezzor on Thursday after spending the last 24 hours involved in a fierce battle with the so-called Islamic State (ISIS).

The Syrian Democratic Forces were able to crack the Islamic State’s lines after U.S. attack helicopters repeatedly bombarded the Islamic State terrorists, forcing them to ultimately fall back.

However, the SDF would not have much time to secure the town after its capture, as the Islamic State terrorists launched a large-scale counter-attack in a bid to retake Baghouz Fouqani.

The Islamic State media alleges that their forces have reentered Baghouz Fouqani after killing more than 20 fighters from the Syrian Democratic Forces.

The Islamic State often exaggerates the death toll of enemy forces, which is something they have done since their units began losing a lot of ground in Syria and Iraq.

Intense clashes are now ongoing inside of Baghouz Fouqani, as the Islamic State attempts to reclaim the town from the Syrian Democratic Forces.

I’m from US. With ally’s like France we are sure to be defeated. I cannot believe that our government can condone these mass murders in the Middle East. A sad day for the Republic.

Without ally like France, USA wouldn’t even exist, idiot! And when it comes to efficiency, especially considering a ridiculous military budget of only €40 billions, maybe should you take some lessons from the way French liberated Mali from jihadists in 3-4 weeks while it’s twice as big as Afghanistan where you’re in a quagmire for 17 years. Maybe would you note that the jihad spread in sub-Saharian Africa was in an area as large as the USA and with local forces teaming with the French, within one year, Boko Haram and other cockroaches were history. Even if there wan’t USA… Read more »

France got their a$$es handed to them by Ho and his people. JFK was murdered and LBJ began a War where US was eventually humiliated with 58,000 of our men dead and many, many wounded physically and mentally. WWI and WWII were wars that US had no business fighting. France the Nation of b**t Hole Surfers and belligerent cowards. France did invent the douche’ bag. Just my opinion.

The French fought well in WWI and could not hold out when outflanked in WWII, though they were stupid to declare war on Germany. Now, however, they declare war on themselves, but in that they are not unique among Western nations.

I have a feeling the US is trying to pretend it has been fighting ISIS all along as opposed to financing and supplying them.

ISIS = Iranian Secret Inghimasi Service.
Putin said that, in Syria, only SAA and Kurds were really fighting ISIS.
Guess why IRGC and Hezbollocks don’t (or faint to fight)…

Actually, ISIS is Mossad’s name. Look it up, you hasbara troll. They had that name already few decades ago. Everyone in CIA used to call Mossad “Israeli Secret Intelligence Service”. And in 2013 they created the ISIS (just like Mossad’s name) terrorist organization to defeat Iran through their proxies in Syria and Iraq. Daeshbags-Sux, you just spew bullshit and have no idea what’s going on in the world. You should just stop bothering yourself with politics and geo-politics, because you suck at it and you’re embarrassing yourself.
