BEIRUT, LEBANON (10:50 A.M.) – The month of May has been cruel to the Islamic State (ISIL) forces, as the terror organization has suffered several defeats in both Iraq and Syria.

Perhaps the Islamic State’s biggest loss this month came at the hands of the Kurdish-led Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) in the western countryside of the Al-Raqqa Governorate.

The Syrian Democratic Forces not only captured Tabaqa City this month, but also, the strategic Tabaqa Dam and its surrounding villages.

Meanwhile, in east Aleppo, the Islamic State suffered another setback near the Euphrates River, as the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) announced the capture of the strategic Jirah Military Airport on Friday.

With a significant amount of ground lost already in May, the rest of the month looks rather bleak for the Islamic State, as news of Syrian Army reinforcements landing in Deir Ezzor adds to the terrorist group’s plight.

The sooner map will be neither with green nor grey, the better.
BTW, if some of the roaches came from the EU, it’s useless to send them back, we can do without and we prefer to not know what happened to them, knowing they’re pushing up the daisies is enough 😉
