BEIRUT, LEBANON (9:15 P.M.) – Following the capture of two ISIS-held towns bordering the Euphrates River yesterday, the US-backed Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) took control over the neighboring town of Al-Matabb on Friday.

In addition, the predominately Kurdish SDF seized the adjacent hill of Tall Unayzah earlier today, thereby securing fire control over the ISIS-held towns of Khass Ujayl and Khass Hibal in a region roughly 55 kilometers east of Raqqa city.

This advance is highly strategic as it severs the Islamic State supply line between Deir Ezzor and Raqqa, thus forcing ISIS combattants to rely on a network of desert roads in eastern Homs rather than the main road Raqqa-Deir Ezzor road that has been under the caliphate’s control for over two years.

Territorial gains were also achieved by the SDF in the northern Deir Ezzor countryside amid phase three of the US-backed Euphrates Wrath offensive.

Yesterday, a United States military official said the SDF were ‘weeks’ from reaching Raqqa city. However, the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) has brought the race to Raqqa back into effect after the Tiger Forces embarked upon a major eastern Aleppo campaign resulting in daily unprecedented gains.
