BEIRUT, LEBANON (11:15 A.M.) – The US-backed Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) scored a major advance in northeastern Syria, today, when their troops seized the Islamic State’s last major stronghold.

According to pro-SDF activists, their troops managed to take full control of Al-Dashishah after a short battle this morning with the Islamic State terrorists in the area.

If these reports prove true, this loss could be devastating for the Islamic State, as Al-Dashishah was the terrorist group’s headquarters in northeast Syria since they conceded Al-Shaddadi to the US-backed forces in 2016.

The Syrian Democratic Forces launched their second phase of Operation Jazeera Storm earlier this month, following a semi-successful campaign in the southeastern part of the Deir Ezzor Governorate.

Since launching the second phase of Operation Jazeera Storm, the Syrian Democratic Forces managed to seize over 15 localities from the Islamic State terrorists in a span of two weeks.

Does this mean that the US has given up using ISIS to seize the border crossing to Iraq and instead will re-cycle the ISIS gangs as another alphabet terror group such as the FSA to be used on the border with Jordan instead 🙂

TSA would be one option, Trumps Smart Army.
