BEIRUT, LEBANON (11:30 A.M.) – The Iraqi-led Hashd Al-Sha’abi forces carried out a powerful attack against a group of Islamic State (ISIS/ISIL/IS/Daesh) terrorists near the key town of Al-Sousah.

According to the official media wing of Hashd Al-Sha’abi, their forces fired several artillery shells towards the Islamic State’s defenses near Al-Sousah, resulting in the death of several terrorist combatants.

Hashd Al-Sha’abi said that their attack resulted in the death of at least 15 Islamic State terrorists.

The Al-Sousah front is located inside the eastern countryside of the Deir Ezzor Governorate and it is currently under attack by the Kurdish-led Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF); they have been working to capture this Islamic State pocket for several weeks now.

With nowhere to retreat east of the Euphrates, the remaining Islamic State fighters are bracing themselves for a final stand against the advancing Syrian Democratic Forces.

Once the Syrian Democratic Forces clear this pocket, they will be able to reinforce their front-lines along the Turkish border.

Buena opción para ayudar a acabar con ISIS para que EE.UU. se retire de Siria y no busque excusas para quedarse.
