BEIRUT, LEBANON (9:40 A.M.) – The Islamic State’s (ISIS/ISIL/IS/Daesh) reign in the eastern region of the Euphrates is in serious danger, as the U.S.-backed Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) approach the last terrorist-held town.

Backed by French and U.S. artillery and air strikes, the Syrian Democratic Forces have seized three of the last four towns that were occupied by the Islamic State in the Euphrates River Valley.

According to local reports from the eastern region of the Euphrates River Valley, the Syrian Democratic Forces captured the towns of Safafinah, Shajlah, and Baghouz Fouqani after overrunning the Islamic State’s defenses.

As a result of this advance, the Syrian Democratic Forces are now attacking Murashidah, which is the last town that is occupied by the Islamic State in this region.

Once Murashidah is captured, the Syrian Democratic Forces will have completed their eastern Euphrates operation.

This is incredibly important for the SDF because they will be able to reinforce their front-lines along the northern border of the country.

They were rescued and later they were recruited into their armed militias. Victims of post traumatic stress disorder are easy prey for the recruiters compared those who are forcibly conscripted.

I espect a lot of critisism for SDFs killing civialians, planning to take over all syria, stealing oil and beíng slow. Not a single nice hip-hip hurrah from Damaskus and Ankara.

“Veuve Cliquot” pink Champagne is in the fridge, ready for the victory. AFAIK, Yanks artillery is not around. The 6 French Caesar self-propelled Howitzers are doing all the job and are enough at it. AFAIK, these are the only guns with metric accuracy while using 155mm unguided standard shells. Range is 50km, rate of fire is 6 shells per minute, so the 6 guns blast 36 targets per minute… The effect can be considered to equate having a fighter-jets squadron doing strikes every 3 minutes for the cost of cheap 155mm standard shells… No surprise that CJTF/OIR seriously reduced the… Read more »

Espero que el final sea aniquilado en su totalidad, luego a rescatar todo norte de Siria priorizando Afrin antes que la dogma de Erdogan se imponga.
