BEIRUT, LEBANON (9:50 A.M.) – The Islamic State (ISIS) has officially lost their last link from the Euphrates River to the Iraqi border after the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) seized an important town from the terrorist group.

The Syrian Democratic Forces were able to impose full control over the key town of Al-Baghouz, Saturday, forcing the Islamic State terrorists to retreat away from the Euphrates River.

With ISIS expelled, the Euphrates River is finally safe to use in the Deir Ezzor Governorate for the first time since the start of this long and brutal war.

ISIS will now attempt to maintain their positions along the Iraqi border; however, with the SDF quickly advancing to the town of Hajjin, it is unlikely that the terrorist group will be able to hold this area.

Please treat this discussion with the same respect you would a public park. We, too, are a shared community resource — a place to share skills, knowledge and interests through ongoing conversation.

These are not hard and fast rules, merely guidelines to aid the human judgment of our community and keep this a clean and well-lighted place for civilized public discourse.

Improve the Discussion

Help us make this a great place for discussion by always working to improve the discussion in some way, however small. If you are not sure your post adds to the conversation, think over what you want to say and try again later.

The topics discussed here matter to us, and we want you to act as if they matter to you, too. Be respectful of the topics and the people discussing them, even if you disagree with some of what is being said.

Be Agreeable, Even When You Disagree

You may wish to respond to something by disagreeing with it. That’s fine. But remember to criticize ideas, not people. Please avoid:

  • Name-calling
  • Ad hominem attacks
  • Responding to a post’s tone instead of its actual content
  • Knee-jerk contradiction

Instead, provide reasoned counter-arguments that improve the conversation.
