BEIRUT, LEBANON (7:15 P.M.) – The Islamic State (ISIS/ISIL/IS/Daesh) is doing everything they can to hold onto their last Euphrates stronghold, Hajin, which is currently under heavy attack by the U.S.-backed Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF).

With intense clashes taking place within close quarters, Daesh has begun using suicide bombers to inflict heavy losses in the ranks of the SDF.

On Wednesday alone, Daesh conducted at least a half dozen suicide attacks, with reportedly hitting the positions of the Syrian Democratic Forces inside Hajin.

While Daesh claims many SDF fighters were killed, the death toll still remains unknown at this time.

These large-scale suicide attacks have been used by Daesh in several previous battles against the Syrian Arab Army (SAA), SDF, and Iraqi Armed Forces.

The terrorist attacks often forestall the enemy forces, which, in Daesh’s case, is incredibly important because the Turkish military is preparing to invade northern Syria.

Should Turkey begin their assault before Hajin is captured, Daesh will likely survive this battle because the SDF will have to redeploy forces to northern Syria.
