BEIRUT, LEBANON (2:10 P.M.) – The U.S.-backed Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) are mass gathering near the Iraqi border to open a new front against the Islamic State (ISIS/ISIL/IS/Daesh) in the Deir Ezzor province.

According to reports from Deir Ezzor, the Syrian Democratic Forces have begun amassing troops near the Sousah Desert as they prepare to open this front against the Islamic State terrorist organization.

This latest move by the Syrian Democratic Forces comes as their troops steadily advance inside the Islamic State stronghold of Hajin, which is the last major town under the control of the Islamic State terrorists.

Since launching their Hajin offensive, the Syrian Democratic Forces have managed to capture more than half the town, leaving only the southern districts still under the Islamic State’s control.

It speaks well of SDF capacities that they are able for several large operations at the same time. They must overwhelm IS defensive capabilities.

SDF now has howitzers, older 122mm ones, operational and use. Reported as delivered by AMN and confirmed by photos on twitter.

Now manpads and newer atgm’s, and they will be able, not to defeat Turkey, but to inflict heavy lossess.
