BEIRUT, LEBANON (2:00 P.M.) – The Islamic State (ISIS/ISIL/IS/Daesh) launched a large-scale offensive in the southeastern countryside of the Deir Ezzor Governorate this past weekend.

Daesh was able to overwhelm the U.S.-backed Syrian Democratic Forces along the eastern Euphrates front, resulting in the capture several points, including the town of Al-Bahra.

While the Syrian Democratic Forces were able to retake all of the areas they lost to Daesh, they did suffer a large number of casualties as a result of this large-scale offensive in the eastern part of the Euphrates River region.

According to the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights (SOHR), at least 92 fighters from the U.S.-backed forces were killed during the three-day long battle with the Daesh terrorists.

In addition to the presence of the Syrian Democratic Forces, the Kurdish-led People’s Protection Units (YPG) was also helping in the defense of the southeastern countryside of the Deir Ezzor Governorate.

The total number of Daesh terrorists killed during this operation is still unknown; however, it is expected to be nearly just as high as the SDF’s numbers or more.

Kurds Shias Arabs who sold themselves to USA and Russia will never be victorious against Islamic State and it’s law sharia, Isis will always remain despite being few and outnumbered, its amazing Allah never break His promise, as our prophet pbuh said in the end time a group of his ummah will come with black banners and they will fight 80 nations and no one will be able to stop them until they reach al aqsa

Why Daesh never tried to take over Saoudi Arabia and establish their version of Islam for the rest of the Muslim world and for the Saoudis? They have tried Iraq, Syria, Afghanistan, Libya, Yemen, Egypt, Nigeria and destroyed everything in their path just like black plague. But they have left smaller Sunni & Shia countries such as UAE, Qatar, Oman untouched apart from Iran. They also have not got any foot hold in Turki or Pakistan or Malaysia, Indonesia which have predominantly Sunni population. It is a rejection of Daesh by majority of Moslem nations and population except for few… Read more »
