DAMASCUS, SYRIA (7:45 A.M.) – The Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF), backed by the US-led coalition, launched a new offensive aimed at capturing the town of Hajin in eastern Syria which is now under the Islamic State control.

The US coalition initiated the offensive by conducting heavy airstrikes against the jihadists while the SDF ground forces were stationed outside the town.

The predominantly-Kurdish militia has failed twice to storm the town despite the heavy aerial support provided by the US air force.

ISIS militants have shown unprecedented resistance which has so far kept the town invincible.

The town bear a strategic importance since it serves as the main hub for the terror group in eastern Syria.

According to the UK-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, Hajin hosts more than 100 of ISIS top commanders; mostly Iraqis and foreign jihadists who have fled the battles in Iraq.

LOL. Of course. Because, as we all know, ISIS are egalitarian feminists who advocate for direct democracy, gender equality and the separation of religion from politics. What an expert you are, rancidix.
