BEIRUT, LEBANON (6:00 P.M.) – The Islamic State (ISIS) is on the verge of defeat in the Deir Ezzor Governorate after losing several areas at the hands of the US-backed Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF).

Backed by US and French airstrikes, the SDF scored a major advance in eastern Deir Ezzor last week, seizing several towns from the Islamic State terrorists near the Iraqi border.

Among the areas captured by the Syrian Democratic Forces last week were the towns of Al-Ismail, Al-Aqra, Bir Mazal, Bir Dahamad, Al-Jarjari, Al-Halluni, Al-Bujari, Abud al-Jadan, al-Khinzir, Bir Zuqum, Bir Umm Ghurba, Qarat al-Moutab, Umm al-Rus, Sabkhat al-Sahil and Khasham.

These aforementioned towns were captured by the Syrian Democratic Forces in the matter of 72 hours, local activists reported.

The Syrian Democratic Forces have now reached the desert area of Al-Hasakah, which is where the Islamic State terrorists are expected to make their last stand in the coming days.

What about the large ISIS pocket in the central Badiyeh?
And the lower Euphrates pocket above Albukamal?

When t-shirts are sweaty, they take more time to swap. SDF turns to ISIS so easily sometimes.

That’s 2 things I just read that don’t seem to make sense.
Russia thanks Israel for attack on Daesh … but Daesh is Israel’s little donkey!
SDF is defeating ISIL. They are also different parts of the same beast.
I ask seriously, are they play-acting?
I can see ISIL handing territory over to semi official US proxies but did the Israelis really think the Daesh provocation was an attack?

I don’t think the creators of ISIS will bother with coffins somehow they’ve already spent billions arming them, besides America can’t afford it now and that’s why Drumpf has been cap in hand to the Saudi henchman to ask for additional funding otherwise he is not gonna play ball.
Yep the creators and funders of ISIS are having a bad day at the office and they are not liking it one bit, losers. You wouldn’t put it past them to have something else up their bloodstained sleeves now would you ?
