BEIRUT, LEBANON (9:30 A.M.) – The U.S. Air Force unleashed a flurry of airstrikes over the Baghouz area of eastern Deir Ezzor this morning, hitting several areas controlled by the Islamic State (ISIS/ISIL/IS/Daesh).
According to reports from nearby Deir Ezzor city, the U.S. Coalition hammered the Islamic State’s positions in and around the Baghouz camp as they attempt to force the remaining terrorists in the area to surrender to the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF).
In the meantime, the Syrian Democratic Forces are making their last preparations to storm the remaining Islamic State positions that are located along the eastern bank of the Euphrates River.
Over the last few days, the Syrian Democratic Forces were able to secure some agreements with the Islamic State, including a prisoner exchange that saw both sides release 40 people.
However, despite these agreements, several hundred Islamic State terrorists inside this Euphrates pocket continue to refuse all terms of surrender by the Syrian Democratic Forces and U.S. Coalition.
As a result of this, the U.S. Coalition has stepped up their airstrikes in a bid to change Islamic State’s mind.
