BEIRUT, LEBANON (10:00 A.M.) – While Syrian Arab Army (SAA) works on the last Islamic State (ISIS) pocket west of the Euphrates River, the US-backed Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) have been advancing along the eastern bank of this waterway, capturing several towns that were under the control of the terrorist group.

Led by their Deir Ezzor Military Council, the SDF stormed the town of Abu Hardoub yesterday, attacking the Islamic State’s positions from several flanks.

Not long after launching the attack, the Syrian Democratic Forces managed to capture the town, which ultimately resulted in the Islamic State’s subsequent withdrawal towards the Iraqi border.

Since resuming their offensive in southeast Deir Ezzor, the Syrian Democratic Forces have captured several towns in the province, putting them in position seal off the Iraqi border near the strategic city of Albukamal.
