ISIS Attacks Omar Oil Fields. SDF Resumes Own Advance In Euphrates Valley

A group of 12 ISIS fighters launched a surprise attack on a key position of the US-backed Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) in the Omar oil fields in the southeastern Deir Ezzor countryside.

The US-backed group managed to repel the attack with support from US-led coalition warplanes. 10 attackers were killed. However, the remaining 2 managed to withdraw back to the terrorist-held pocket in the middle Euphrates River Valley.

Several hours after the terrorist group attack, the SDF announced the beginning of its final advance in the Euphrates Valley.

“After saving more than 20K [20,000] civilians from ISIS-held area and ensuring their safety in nearby camps, the SDF started to move on to the last village remaining under jihadists’ control in Northern Syria. The village of Baghuz, which is the only remaining in ISIS pocket, will be cleared soon,” Mustafa Bali, a spokesman for the Kurdish group, said on Twitter.

The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights (SOHR) said that the ISIS attack was an attempt to pressure the US-led coalition. Both sides reortedly resumed their negotiations few days ago. However, an agreement is yet to be reached.

“The group [ISIS] is trying to prove its offensive capabilities by carrying out operations against sensitive positions of the SDF and the US-led coalition in eastern Deir Ezzor,” the SOHR’s report reads.

The available information indicates that ISIS leaders want the coalition to allow them and their families to flee to a “safe area” in Syria or Iraq. In previous years of the conflict, the coalition stuck similar agreements with the terrorist group in Manbij, Tabqah and Raqqa.

    “To flee to a ‘safe area’, in Syria or Iraq”, let it be Idlib, not Iraq.

      Or maybe Tel Aviv. I’m pretty sure they will reveive a warm welcome by their master, Netanyahu :)

    WTF? “…However, the remaining 2 managed to withdraw back to the terrorist-held pocket in the middle Euphrates River Valley…”

    WHAT terrorist-held pocket? The supposedly SDF-surrounded little pocket in Foquani Baghuz? “Excuse me SDF… Pardon us, YPG dude… Don’t shoot – we’re just passing through on our way to Foquani Baghuz. You’re going to overrun that area soon, right? See? We’re no threat. OK. Good night, then.”

    There is not other pocket on the east side of the Euphrates – SDF already said so. I’m not for an instant going to believe that two head-choppers drove over from the pocket in the desert WEST of the Euphrates. I guess SDF just declares Syrian territory to be in whichever ISIS status-of-control suits them at the time: Head-chopper free! Yay! / Head-chopper pocket! Danger!

      Just go with the flow PWIV, apparently there are another 150,000 ISIS still in Syria, 25,000 in Damascus itself, and 40,000 that have infiltrated the Russian invading army, 40,000 hidden in their new cave HQ and 45,000 in camouflage pretending to be a dam – John Bolton 11/2/19 Aleppo.

        Holy cr%p. There is a lot of work left to be done ! :)

        • You can call me Al

          It doubles in numbers tomorrow with Bolton’s speech.

        • You can call me Al

          hehehehe. Yep.

        Hey Bolton, I think there’s some ISIS hiding in my garage! Send the SDF over. And tell them to clean out some of that junk while they’re looking for head-choppers. Too many damn places to hide. If the damn military would keep that place neat and tidy, it would discourage pockets of jihadi from setting up camp. And I could finally use the structure for it’s intended national security purpose: storing cars. Remember: my seedy contact Jeff Epstein has those pictures of your mustache in places it should not have been. Garage key under the mat. Thanks, fucker.

      • Promitheas Apollonious

        it must be some cave.

      “WHAT terrorist-held pocket?”

      The US base.

    Don’t forget Brother Baghdadi split the armed opposition isolated and even internationally marginalised al-Qaeda, while asking for and getting nothing in return for their sacrifice, except posthumously of course being guaranteed a high status confirmed in Paradise.

    The brand name IS has now been commandeered by Mossad Zino Christian puppets.

    This is a highly non credible story. ISIS attacks the omar oil fields instead of saving their lives and breaking out into the homs desert.
