BEIRUT, LEBANON (3:30 P.M.) – The U.S. Coalition has responded to the so-called “Islamic State’s” (ISIS/ISIL/IS/Daesh) advances in rural Deir Ezzor, today, by launching several airstrikes over the terrorist group’s positions.
According to activists from the Kurdish-led Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF), the U.S. Coalition unleashed a powerful attack on Daesh’s positions in the town of Al-Bahra.
Al-Bahra was captured by Daesh during their big assault against the Syrian Democratic Forces this afternoon.
The U.S. Coalition strikes will likely force Daesh to abandon the recently captured town, as they are currently sitting ducks inside Al-Bahra.
Over the last 24 hours, the Daesh forces have launched two major attacks against the SDF troops in southeast Deir Ezzor.
The first attack was repelled by the Syrian Democratic Forces on Friday; however, the terrorist group’s second assault would prove successful, as they managed to capture Al-Bahra from the Kurdish-led troops.
