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.
