DAMASCUS, SYRIA (10:35 A.M.) – Following a large-scale operation on Saturday, the so-called ‘Syrian Democratic Forces’ (SDF) have finally taken control of the ISIS stronghold of Al-Busayrah, located 30 kilometers southeast of the provincial capital of Deir Ezzor.

In addition, the Kurdish-led SDF secured all neighboring villages on Saturday evening, thereby completely eliminating an Islamic State pocket on the eastern side of the Euphrates River.

On the other hand, Amaq Agency claimed in a rare bulletin that 15 SDF fighters were killed following a ISIS suicide bombing on the Kharafi Road in northeastern Deir Ezzor.

With all rearguard areas nevertheless cleared, the next stage of the ‘Al-Jazirah Storm’ offensive is expected to have the SDF shift its attention to the border with Iraq and the remaining ISIS-held towns and oil fields in southeastern Deir Ezzor.

US advisers have been instrumental in planning recent pincer offensives conducted by the SDF in eastern Deir Ezzor while American warplanes have cleared the path from the sky.

But the SDF are walking through those thousands of so called Daesh warriors like a walk in the park? There is something wrong,… Read more »
