DAMASCUS, SYRIA (8:50 P.M.) – On Tuesday, gains were modest for the ‘Syrian Democratic Forces’ (SDF) as ISIS lost just one village amid ongoing clashes southeast of Deir Ezzor City.

Following the capture of a nearby ISIS pocket on Monday, the SDF pushed southwest along the Khabur River and managed to wrestle control over the frontier village of Al-Qushayriyah this afternoon.

A total of seven ISIS members were neutralized during the assault on the village as SDF forward units zero in on another Islamic State enclave centered around the Euphrates River town of Al-Busayrah.

Kurdish forces did not wish to specify their own death toll which, according to a recent propaganda video released by ISIS, has been in the hundreds since the US-supported operation ‘Al-Jazirah Storm’ began 59 days ago.

In the coming days, the SDF will pursue pincers to close in on the Islamic State stronghold of Al-Busayrah, looking to clear rearguard areas before shifting their focus to ISIS-held territory on the border with Iraq further east.

An updated map depicting the current frontline situation in the area can be found here.

Let us be clear here. The SDF is not battling ISIS which is its own self terror group woth sheep’s clothing. ISIS which have always been under US/Zionist/Saudi control is battling anti-ISIS pro Syrian government local armed tribal forces who don’t want to be thrown out of their villages and homes and forcefully deported to refugee camps by the foreign invading Zionist/US/Kurdish terror colonial imperialist forces as has happened to their breathren in Raqqa city. The images of dead fighters we saw of ISIS Amaq propaganda outlet is of local tribal fighters not SDF.

This article should surely be titled :-

“Kurdish forces walk into another US controlled ISIS-held village in eastern Deir Ezzor and they all hug each other as brothers.”
