BEIRUT, LEBANON (2:47 P.M.) – ISIS has denied that the Kurdish-led Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) have captured Tabqa Dam in a statement released by Amaq Agency.

It was first reported that the SDF captured Tabqa Dam from ISIS after a spectacular attack that saw the fighters launch the multi-pronged attack behind ISIS frontlines, resulting in them capturing Tabqa Dam.

“The Coalition supported this offensive with air movement and logistical support, precision airstrikes, Apache helicopters in close air support, Marine artillery, and special operations advice and assistance to SDF leadership,” the US-led coalition said in a statement.

ISIS however has denied the reports by the SDF and the US-led coalition, and claim to still control Tabqa Dam.

The ISIS statement emphasized that they foiled the US-led operation of attempting to land helicopters full of SDF fighters.

Mysterious. We will see who is the more reliable source. Kurds & US or IS.

The US and ISIS are ‘Peas out of the same pod’ where accurate reporting is concerned. Both are duplicitous.

Ok. But maybe Kurds are reliable?

Anyway, the principle of jihad being taqiyya, we can trust IS as much as Nusrallah when, in 2006, he bragged about having won 😀

4h ago, the dam was just not fully retaken.
Seem there are French and US military participating…
Kinda job for Commando Hubert, specialists of maritime job, usually assaulting boats at sea, cleansing bunkers, paving the way for beach-landings by liquidating every serious threat before. Kinda guys you never see when they operate but, if you see them, they’re the last thing you’ll ever see…
