DAMASCUS, SYRIA (10:00 P.M.) – Over the weekend, four simultaneous pincers by the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) resulted in substantial gains in the northern and eastern countryside of Deir Ezzor.

Exactly one month since launching operation ‘Al-Jazirah Storm’, the Kurdish-led SDF expelled ISIS from the villages of Wesiha, Al-Sawah and Zughayr Jazira amid clashes on Saturday and Sunday.

This advance follows the capture of Hermushiya Kabeera, Hermushiya Saghira, Tall Kasrah and Tall Abu Fahat on October 4; the aforementioned villages are all located directly north of Deir Ezzor city.

Meanwhile, clashes continue to unfold across several points along the Khabur River in southern Hasakah and eastern Deir Ezzor where the SDF is probing ISIS lines and steadily advancing.

In total, 8 ISIS members were killed by the SDF across the northern and eastern countryside of Deir Ezzor during the latest round of operations.

With the US-backed SDF swarming across Deir Ezzor, ISIS is expected to lose control of its last villages in northern Deir Ezzor before the end of October. The ongoing Kurdish offensive is notably heavily aided by US warplanes and advisors.
