DAMASCUS, SYRIA (4:45 P.M.) – A US-backed Syrian rebel group has reportedly entered a key stronghold for the Islamic State terror group in eastern Syria amid intensifying battles.

“Our forces have blitzed ISIS militants and attacked their fortifications inside al-Sousah village”, a statement published by the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) said.

Fierce clashes were reported inside the small village before the Kurdish fighters were capable of entering it.

The advance was made after the village was heavily bombed by the US-led coalition, killing scores of ISIS jihadists as well as civilians.

In this context, The U.S. Coalition destroyed a mosque that was used by the Islamic State (ISIS) terrorist organization as a command center in eastern Syria, the Joint Task Force of the Operation Inherent Resolve stated.

“On October 22, a Coalition strike destroyed several buildings used by Daesh to launch attacks against Syrian Democratic Force partners in As Susah, Syria,” the press release said.

Last week, Syria accused the US-led coalition of bombing the town of Hajin in Deir Ezzor with internationally banned munitions.

According to the UK-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, the battles between ISIS and the Kurdish forces have so far killed 419 ISIS militants and 232 SDF fighter.

The monitoring group also documented the death of at least 48 civilians – including 12 children – in airstrikes conducted by the US-led coalition on Deir Ezzor countryside.
