BEIRUT, LEBANON (5:45 P.M.) – The U.S.-backed Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) allegedly entered the Islamic State’s (ISIS/ISIL/IS/Daesh) new capital in Syria after a fierce battle this afternoon.
According to reports from local activists, the Syrian Democratic Forces entered the town of Hajin from its northeastern axis after overrunning the Daesh defenses at this flank.
Neither the Syrian Democratic Forces nor the U.S. Coalition have confirmed these reports as of yet.
However, if these reports prove true, this could be a major blow to the Daesh terrorist organization, as Hajin has served as their de-facto capital in both Syria and Iraq since they lost Raqqa, Mosul, and Mayadeen.
Hajin is a strategic town that is located in the southeastern countryside of the Deir Ezzor Governorate.
