BEIRUT, LEBANON (9:00 A.M.) – The Kurdish-led Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) launched on Sunday a big attack on a Euphrates River Valley town that is occupied by the Islamic State (ISIS/ISIL/IS/Daesh) terror group.

Backed by U.S. airstrikes, the Syrian Democratic Forces began their assault on Sunday by storming the Islamic State’s positions inside Abu Khater.

According to local reports, the Syrian Democratic Forces were able to score a big advance against the Islamic State militants, resulting in the capture of several points inside the town.

The Syrian Democratic Forces were reportedly able to establish a foothold inside of Abu Khater, paving the way for their troops to reach the town-center.

For the Syrian Democratic Forces, capturing Abu Khater is an imperative endeavor because it will ultimately help them secure the key town of Hajin, which they seized earlier this month.

In the mean time the Turks are sending more troops to N. Syria getting ready to attack these same Kurds….

It is possible if Russians & President Putin ensure that Turki doesn’t attack Syria by asking Turki to back off.

simple really the kurds are just another bunch of opportunist apartheid interlopers that are trying to steal land that they have no right to. allow the proper syrian army to take over otherwise i hope the SAA don’t lift a figure to help them.

In fact it is Turkey being an apartheid state, building walls along their borders. Btw any native people have a right to their lands, even when occupying foreign invaders, like arabs and turks, do not agree.

Arabs do not want to accept israelis, considered to be invaders, just like arabs and turks are in Syriac and kurdish lands. Maybe arab nations should start to look in the mirror and start some much needed selfreflection.
