BEIRUT, LEBANON (12:20 A.M.) – The so-called “Islamic State” (ISIS) launched a big counter-attack in the southeastern part of the Deir Ezzor Governorate this week.

During their large-scale counter-attack, the Islamic State managed to retake several areas from the U.S.-backed Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF), including parts of the Al-Sousah region.

According to the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights (SOHR), the Islamic State killed over 70 fighters from the Syrian Democratic Forces, which is large increase from the previously reported death toll of 41 earlier in the day.

Adding to the plight of the Syrian Democratic Forces, over 100 of their fighters were badly wounded during the intense fighting with the Islamic State.

While the U.S. and French forces are aiding the SDF in their operations in southeast Deir Ezzor, the latter is struggling to break into the Islamic State’s last major stronghold of Hajin, which is located near the eastern bank of the Euphrates River.

For the Islamic State, Hajin is their de-facto capital in the Middle East; if they lose it, they will no longer possess any major town in Syria or Iraq.

That is where US has a base next door too the ISIS base and they invite each other over for dinner on alternate nights as a means of maintaining friendly relations with your “enemy”. The US took 50 armored vehicles there they other day. Was that too protect ISIS fighters as they transported them too fight the YPG / SDF. Oh the joys of fighting a war with / against the US.. With their firepower the US and France can’t stem the flow of ISIS. Move aside and let Russia show you how it is really done.

Are they truly trying to defeat ISIS? I doubt that. More like arming and training them.

The Kurds if they had any brains they should have sided with President Assad and fought along with SAA against their common enemy Daesh rather than suc king up to Amrikans and French who have really let them down very badly.

Amrikans have really let the SDF down very badly, no air cover and no retaliations. They are very buzy attacking SAA. Over 70 KIA and 100s wounded doesn’t sound too good, it can have a demoralising affect on the SDF fighters. This also shows that Amrikans are in capable of eliminating the daesh just like the Taliban.
