BEIRUT, LEBANON (4:40 P.M.) – The Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) have captured a key town in the Euphrates River Valley region of the Deir Ezzor Governorate after a fierce battle with the Islamic State (ISIS) terror group.

Backed by U.S airstrikes, the Syrian Democratic Forces were able to overpower the last Islamic State fighters inside the town of Abu Khater after several days of intense clashes.

The Islamic State was ultimately forced to give up Abu Khater once the Syrian Democratic Forces reached the town-center and began surrounding the remaining terrorists in the area.

With Abu Khater under their control, the Syrian Democratic Forces have officially secure the key town of Hajin, which was a former stronghold for the Islamic State along the eastern bank of the Euphrates River.

The Syrian Democratic Forces are now working to capture the town of Abu Hassan from the remaining Islamic State terrorists in the area.
