BEIRUT, LEBANON (2:30 A.M.) – The Islamic State (ISIS/ISIL/IS/Daesh) is not quite done in the eastern part of the Euphrates River Valley region, despite losing a significant portion of territory to the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) over the last two weeks.

In an effort to take advantage of the rough weather conditions, the Islamic State launched a big counter-attack in eastern Hajin on Monday.

The terrorist group was able to retake several areas from the Syrian Democratic Forces east of Hajin before making their push to reenter the town.

While the Islamic State claims they are entrenched inside of eastern Hajin, the Syrian Democratic Forces deny the terrorist group possesses any portion of the town.

With a limited U.S. air presence over Hajin due to the weather, the Syrian Democratic Forces have been forced to rely on their ground troops to beat back the terrorist combatants.

One must give IS fighters thaf they have courage, even if it is the result of being fully doped and under sanction of being shot when or if they run.

Real courage is fighting on without drugs.
