The U.S. backed Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) reportedly captured 2 villages from the Islamic State of Iraq and Al-Sham (ISIS) in northern Al-Raqqa after the latter’s failed counter-offensive last week near the strategic border town of Tal Abyad.

According to the predominately Kurdish “People’s Protection Units” (YPG), the Syrian Democratic Forces imposed full control over the villages of Al-Tarwaziyah and Al-Siraba in the Tal Abyad countryside, killing several ISIS terrorists in the process of their advance southward to the provincial capital.

The Syrian Democratic Forces have recently started an offensive in the Tal Abyad countryside to cleanse the area of all ISIS terrorists lingering around since the latter’s last assault.

ISIS is in serious trouble in the Al-Raqqa Governorate as the Syrian Democratic Forces and the Syrian Arab Army are advancing inside this province from two different fronts, leaving the terrorist group wedged between them both.

ISIS can head North-west into Turkey–if they allow it, but that’s about it. East they’re being pushed out by the Iraqis.

ISIS is stuck between Iraq and two hard places.
