BEIRUT, LEBANON (9:20 P.M.) – The U.S. Coalition destroyed a mosque that was used by the Islamic State (ISIS) terrorist organization as a command center in eastern Syria, the Joint Task Force of the Operation Inherent Resolve stated this evening.
“On October 22, a Coalition strike destroyed several buildings used by Daesh to launch attacks against Syrian Democratic Force partners in As Susah, Syria,” the press release said.
“One of those facilities used by Daesh was a mosque that was being used as a defensive fighting position and command center,” they added.
This attack by the U.S. Coalition came just hours after the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) managed to score a big advance north of Baghouz Al-Fouqani in the southeastern countryside of Deir Ezzor.
The Syrian Democratic Forces are now working to clear the remaining towns south of the Islamic State stronghold of Hajin.
