BEIRUT, LEBANON (3:20 P.M.) – A large number of U.S. military vehicles entered the eastern province of Deir Ezzor, today, local activists reported.
According to the reports, over 100 U.S. military trucks carrying weapons were seen traveling from northern Syria to the Syrian Democratic Forces’ (SDF) front-lines in the Deir Ezzor Governorate.
These weapons will be used by the Syrian Democratic Forces in their ongoing battle against the so-called “Islamic State” (ISIS/ISIL/IS/Daesh) near the key town of Hajin in southeast Deir Ezzor.
The Syrian Democratic Forces are currently on the offensive against the Daesh militants after a volatile weekend, which saw the aforementioned terrorist group seize several areas, including the town of Al-Bahra.
While the Syrian Democratic Forces did manage to retake the territories they lost over the weekend, they still need to clear the Baghouz Mountain area, which is still surrounded by Daesh.
