BEIRUT, LEBANON (7:30 P.M.) – The US-backed Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) reportedly entered a strategic town located at the eastern bank of the Euphrates River this evening.

According to a report from an SDF fighter, their troops entered the key town of Baghouz Fouqani this evening after a fierce battle with the so-called “Islamic State” (ISIS) near the Iraqi border-crossing.

The report stated that the Syrian Democratic Forces are now in control of half of Baghouz Fouqani, as they steadily advance through the well-fortified defenses of the Islamic State terrorist organization.

The SDF report added that the U.S. Air Force’s attack choppers and French artillery units are providing close air and ground support to the advancing troops.

If the Syrian Democratic Forces can seize Baghouz Fouqani from the Islamic State, they will have successfully secured the Iraqi border and nearby town of Baghouz Tahtani.

Furthermore, the Syrian Democratic Forces are rapidly advancing near Hajjin, which is the Islamic State’s main Euphrates stronghold.

Hajjin is believed to be the town where the Islamic State’s commanders are currently headquartered.

They were previously headquartered at Al-Mayadeen following their loss in Raqqa; however, their defeat at this city would ultimately result in their departure to Hajjin.
