BEIRUT, LEBANON (1:15 P.M.) – Scores of Islamic State (ISIS) terrorists were killed in eastern Deir Ezzor over the last few days, as the US-backed Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) intensify their assault against the terrorist group.

According to the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights (SOHR), the Syrian Democratic Forces managed to killed more than 50 Islamic State militants during their clashes north of the key town of Hajjin.

Among the 50+ Islamic State terrorists killed north of Hajjin, at two of them were field commanders, the SOHR report added.

As shown in the video footage below, the Syrian Democratic Forces are attempting to advance at the northern axis of Hajjin, while also clearing several hideouts belonging to the terrorist group:

Despite the intensity of the SDF’s assault, the Islamic State has managed to foil several advances by the US-backed forces over the last two weeks.

For ISIS, losing Hajjin and the corresponding towns nearby would be devastating for the terrorist group because this is their new de facto capital in both Syria and Iraq.

While the SDF strikes ISIS in the eastern part of the Euphrates River Valley, the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) and their allies are attempting to clear the remaining Islamic State terrorist near the key city of Al-Mayadeen.

ISIS has repeatedly launched attacks on the western axis of Al-Mayadeen over the last two months; it has prompted the Syrian Army to send reinforcements to this front in order to protect the city.
