DAMASCUS, SYRIA (8:10 P.M.) – Moments ago, the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) imposed full control over the village of Ruwayshid after clashes with ISIS insurgents in the southern countryside of Hasakah following the capture of four nearby villages on Friday.

This advance comes just hours after the SDF leadership officially announced their ‘Al-Jazirah Storm’ offensive was fully underway, an operation which was revealed by Al-Masdar News earlier in the day.

Meanwhile, a massive Kurdish salient has formed southwards en route to Deir Ezzor after a brigade of SDF fighters have reached the outskirts of the Deir Ezzor Industrial Zone, little more than 15 kilometers from the provincial capital.

US jets and choppers are aiding the SDF along every step of the way, conducting dozens of sorties over suspected ISIS positions near the Khabur River. Most of the airstrikes are focused around the Islamic State strongholds of Marqadah and Dashishah.

In the coming weeks, the SDF hopes to reach the northern gates of Deir Ezzor to set up Rojava’s (Syrian Kurdistan) future border with the Syrian Government.

The Kurds and their US Zio-Nazi masters are not fighting their allies and frontbline ‘Sturm Troopers’, ISIS. They are bombing and murdering innocent civilians Maynmar style for ethnic cleansing purposes. What they say is all lies. Without video evidence they can say whatever tbey want even that Wonder Woman is leading the charge and that she is a kurdish female fighter! Give me a break. All front line colonial invasion forces of ISIS have been thrown to stop the Syrian Arab Army and help their Kurdish/Zionist allies to steal Syrian land.

The latest news is that the so called SDF, the colonial Zio-Nazi invasion Kurdish/ISIS forces, have moved to within 15km of the Syrian government forces in Deir Ezrur city to block their advance. In actual fact, the so called SDF has moved no where. ISIS simply changed flag and outfit and morphed into SDF. This explains the air lifting of ISIS leaders from Deir Ezzur by the Zio/US invasion forces and the apparently supersonic speed the invading colonial forces advanced on Deir Ezzur.
