BEIRUT, LEBANON (10:00 A.M.) – Fighters of the US-backed, Kurdish-led Syrian Democratic Forces have expanded their zone of control near the east bank of the Euphrates River in eastern Deir Ezzor Governorate, capturing two new sites in the last 24 hours.

Yesterday Kurdish-led forces continued their operations in eastern Deir Ezzor, striking at ISIS positions south of the Deir Ezzor industrial zone.

According to reports, US-backed fighters seized control of a textile plant and a road junction known as the ‘7-kilometer roundabout’ (apparently named after its distance from Deir Ezzor city).

Based on this latest movement, it appears that Kurdish-led forces are attempting to southeast of the N-7 highway towards the town of Tahla.

In what is now the eighth day of the Syrian Democratic Forces’ Operation Al-Jazeera Tempest campaign, Kurdish-led troops have, according to their own accounts, captured 63 square kilometers of territory and nearly one dozen settlements from ISIS – all at the expense of just 14 fighters killed-in-action.

Although Kurdish-led, many of the “Arabs” among them are Chechen, Pakistani, and Uighur jihadis, as well as Saudis. We know from al-Nusra and al-Qaeda how ´different´ they are from ISIS!
So the Yanks are arming and supporting jihadists no different from those in Idlib and Ghouta and pretending they´re “anti-” ISIS. Yeh, right. These guys need to learn the lesson of Aleppo.

I always thought the Kurds and their allies are self-centered opportunists.SAA and it s allies are the actual heroes fighting in their own land to liberate it from USISIS

Total rubbish. “Kurds and their allies” = Syrians who want democracy. “SAA and it s allies are the actual heroes” – they’ve been murdering Syrians in huge numbers, both before and during the civil war. It’s not for no reason that Assad is known as “the butcher”.

These Kurds are creating a buffer zone between ISIS and SAA. Fully supported by IsraHell and their puppets from USA. ISIS is being replaced by Kurds. They have the same masters.

Isis avoid fighting SDF if they can and prefer to fight with SAA. That is why path was cleared for SDF. but SAA andSDF must avoid fighting with each other until complete elimination of isis

Kurds will only replace ISIS. They will create exactly the same problem. Same masters, same goal.
