Last ISIS pocket east of Euphrates nearly eliminated


Daesh/ISIS last pocket east of the Euphrates River has been nearly cleared by the U.S.-backed Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF).

Backed by U.S. and French air strikes, the Syrian Democratic Forces have been able to steadily advance south towards the last ISIS strongholds in the eastern countryside of the Deir Ezzor province.

Over the last 24 hours, the Syrian Democratic Forces have been able to seize several areas inside the ISIS stronghold, Al-Shafah,  after breaking through the Islamic State’s lines at the northern part of the town.

As a result of this advance, the Syrian Democratic Forces have managed to capture at least 75 percent of Al-Shafah, while also eliminating scores of ISIS terrorists in the process.

Once Al-Shafah is fully captured, the Syrian Democratic Forces will target the last major ISIS stronghold, Al-Sousah, east of the Euphrates River.
