BEIRUT, LEBANON (11:30 A.M.) – Dozens of fighters from the Islamic State (ISIS/ISIL/IS/Daesh) and U.S.-backed Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) have been killed in and around the key town of Hajin in southeast Deir Ezzor, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights (SOHR) reported on Friday morning.

According to the SOHR report, approximately 80 fighters from the Syrian Democratic Forces and Islamic State have been killed over the last four days at the Hajin front.

Of the nearly 80 fighters killed in the last four days, at least 25 were killed as a result of yesterday’s clashes in the northern districts of Hajin.

The death toll will likely double in the coming days as the battle reaches the town-center of Hajin.

America needs 2000 more tanks to counter the approximate 2200 tanks Russia has. And build up our qty of nuclear missles to match the number of Russian missles and up the payload to match russias. We have to work on our hypersonic missles for the icbms and intermediate range missles, submarines, and our fighter jets missles. There could only be peace through strength.

@Juventino, the Us provoked until Russia rearmed. Now You cry.

Russia does not have tanks in Mexico but the US has tanks in Poland. There can be only peace if the US keeps the ball lower.

True, but then Poland is a Nato nember and Mexico is not armed by Russia nor an ally. Russia did sell arms to Cuba though and soon, apparantly , to broke Venezuela.

@Karel, the geography is telling. The US and NATO encroached on Russia’s borders.

And it is not the tanks but the rocket systems the US installed that goad the bear.

Nominally they are defensive and against God knows whose ballistic missiles. But they are against Russia and dual purpose since the can host attack missiles.

p.s. Just like some Russian systems. But we read only about Russia in Main Stream Media.
