BEIRUT, LEBANON (11:00 A.M.) – Despite Donald Trump’s announcement that his country’s military was withdrawing from Syria, the U.S. Coalition continued their air campaign against the Islamic State (ISIS/ISIL/IS/Daesh) forces in the Deir Ezzor province.

Backed by U.S. airstrikes, the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) were able to score a new advance against the Islamic State inside the town of Abu Khater in eastern Deir Ezzor.

According to local reports from the Deir Ezzor province, the Syrian Democratic Forces managed to fracture the Islamic State’s lines at Abu Khater, forcing the terrorist combatants to fall back to the town-center.

While the Syrian Democratic Forces advance in Abu Khater, the U.S. Coalition launched several airstrikes over the eastern region of Deir Ezzor, hitting a number of Islamic State targets near the town of Al-Sousah.

Since the loss of Hajin, the Islamic State has moved their headquarters in east Syria to the town of Al-Sousah, which is located just west of the Iraqi border.

Lose Hajjin move to Al-Sousah, lose Al-Sousah then move to where?

This is a war of attrition. Will Daesh be completely eliminated? I don’t think so. They are slowly melting away. Some went to Afgha and some are on their way to Africa again to Moslem countries and they as usual will bring death & destruction in these countries. Jihadi Islam is a disease. I dont know how these guys are able to travel to Afgha and Africa?

They will swim over the river to the west bank where they still have a large pocket that SAA already conquered three times and lost it time and again.

They are not slowly melting away. They are being slowly being evacuated by US/NATO forces. Why do you think they have been flying into ISIS camps? They knew this was coming for some time. Now they have spread their proxy terrorists around the world….from Africa to Europe to Asia to the Americas and soon to be in a shopping mall near you. ‘Jihadi Islam’ is an Israeli/US/KSA invention for world chaos and domination spread by Wahabbists…Al Qaeda/ISIS and all the other name tags. So far it is working because people believe it is real.
