Deir Ezzor, Syria (12:20 A.M.) – Following the devastating US-led Coalition air strikes on the SAA-held Thardah Mountain which overlooks Deir Ezzor and the adjacent military airport, Islamic State terrorists were able to take advantage of the situation and capture the imperative mountain.

It is important to note that initially, the Syrian Army was able to recapture the mountain until ISIS launched a large-scale assault before the Syrian soldiers were able to fortify their positions and embolden their defenses.

With this US-supported endeavor, the terror organization is within striking distance of the airport’s southern flank while becoming more well-positioned for a successful assault on the Panorama Roundabout and the Armenian Cemetery region west of the embattled city where over a 100,000 people lay at risk from a crippling siege.

In the following video, ISIS militants are seen gloating over the corpses of the Syrian Army personnel killed by the USAF as they pronounce that this ‘conquest’ sets the foundation for cleansing the province from the ‘Nusayris’, a term both ISIS and the US-backed Islamists used for Allawites who are considered by neither as Muslims.

Regardless of the US ambiguous intents in the Euphrates province, the current situation spells disaster for the city’s many inhabitants.

Has the U.S. ever killed even half that number of ISIS in a strike? I think not. The U.S. has repeatedly used Russians’ videos of their pilots striking ISIS. U.S. is using ISIS as a tool.

Israeli Secret Intelligence Service or ISIS is just a terrorist offshoot of America that’s able to commit war crimes without prosecution.

Why doesn’t news just say it as it really is?

US backed terrorist group, Islamic State, takes Syrian Army positions following airstrikes by US-led forces.
