BEIRUT, LEBANON (10:20 P.M.) – The US-backed Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) have captured the strategic district of Al-Husseiniyeh along the eastern bank of the Deir Ezzor Governorate, Kurdish activists reported on Thursday evening.

The capture of the Al-Husseiniyeh District by the Syrian Democratic Forces leaves the Islamic State in serious trouble in Deir Ezzor, as their units are now besieged in a large pocket around the provincial capital.

Al-Husseiniyeh was also a major supply hub for the terrorist group that was used to replenish provisions for Islamic State fighters in western Deir Ezzor.

With Al-Husseiniyeh captured, the Syrian Democratic Forces can now turn their attention to the remaining areas occupied by the Islamic State along the eastern banks of the Euphrates River.

The only party which is in trouble is the Syrian state. ISIS are just US proxies and they now changed name and flag to SDF to block the Syrian government forces from reclaiming all of Deir Ezzur, especially the oil and gas fields. With All of Eastern Syria now inevitably under US/Zio/Nazi imminent domination and occupation, Syria as a state has virtually ceased to exist. It is obvious that Russia was the party responsible for holding back the Tiger Forces from crossing the Euphrates river before and bringing about this situation.
