BEIRUT, LEBANON (9:05 A.M.) – The Islamic State (ISIS) launched a powerful assault in the eastern countryside of the Deir Ezzor Governorate, yesterday, targeting several areas controlled by the US-backed Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF).

According to the Islamic State’s official media wing, their terrorist forces managed to capture the town of Gharanij after launching a new attack along the eastern bank of the Euphrates River.

In addition to capturing Gharanij, the Islamic State claimed their forces killed more than 20 fighters from the Syrian Democratic Forces, while also capturing four other members of the US-backed group.

Despite being expelled from the western bank of the Euphrates, the Islamic State still maintains a large presence in the eastern countryside of Deir Ezzor; specifically, along the Iraqi border.
