BEIRUT, LEBANON (12:45 P.M.) – The Kurdish-led People’s Protection Units (YPG) mourned the recent death of 14 fighters that were killed during an Islamic State (ISIS/ISIL/IS/Daesh) offensive in the Deir Ezzor Governorate.
In addition to the death of 14 fighters, the YPG also reported that several other combatants were wounded during their defense of the Deir Ezzor Governorate’s southeastern countryside.
While the YPG mourned the death of 14 of their fighters, this is not the total death toll for the U.S.-backed forces in southeastern Deir Ezzor.
According to reports from Deir Ezzor, the U.S.-backed forces suffered more than 50 killed in-action after a 48-hour-long battle with the Daesh terrorists near the Iraqi border.
Since the Daesh offensive, the U.S.-backed forces have managed to retake all of the ground they lost to the terrorist group.
