BEIRUT, LEBANON (12:10 A.M.) – The U.S.-backed Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) launched a big attack against the Islamic State (ISIS/ISIL/IS/Daesh) terrorists in the southeastern countryside of Deir Ezzor this evening.

Backed by US Coalition airstrikes, the Syrian Democratic Forces restarted their offensive operations around the strategic town of Hajin in a bid to break into Daesh’s eastern Euphrates pocket.

Thus far, no gains have been reported by the U.S.-backed forces; however, it appears that primary attack has yet to begin on the Daesh pocket.

Prior to the offensive, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights (SOHR) reported that the U.S. Coalition killed over 30 civilians in their recent strikes on the southeastern countryside of Deir Ezzor.

Yeh, right. Big attack.
How many months – or years – is it going to take this wonderful American “coalition” of poodles to defeat this tiny Daesh pocket?
They’re never going to do it – and don’t intend to.

While I agree with your sentiments on Turkey, it seems to me Turkey left it too long. US outpost are partly there and US has said it will not condone any attack on its forces, raising the stakes for Turkey to the jmpossible.
