BEIRUT, LEBANON (8:05 A.M.) – Syrian Coalition-backed forces (of which Kurdish units form a key component) continue to roll up the eastern shore of the Euphrates River in the province of Deir Ezzor despite of constant counter-attacks by Islamic State terrorists.

According to Kurdish sources, the US-led Syrian Democratic Forces captured from ISIS the town of Al-Sabha over the night of Sunday to Monday.

Al-Sabha is located on the eastern shore of the Euphrates and was taken as part of a greater offensive by US-led anti-ISIS forces in the Syrian province of Deir Ezzor. The advance was made despite fierce resistance from jihadist militants coming in the form of hit and run raids and car bomb attacks.

On Sunday, a German ISIS suicide bomber reportedly landed a large attack behind the lines of the Syrian Democratic Forces, killing and wounding nearly one hundred pro-Coalition fighters.

At the present time, Coalition-led forces are attempting to eject ISIS terrorists from two key strongholds on the east Euphrates shore, the towns of Abu Hammam and Haijin.
