ISIS fighters killed more than 28 fighters of the US-backed Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) and captured 8 others during a large hit and run attack in the southeastern Deir Ezzor countryside on October 12, according to the terrorist group news agency Amaq.
In details, ISIS fighters took advantage of the bad weather conditions and attacked several positions of US-backed forces around the towns of al-Kashmah and al-Bahrah. After overrunning theses positions, the terrorists stormed the Hajin refugee camp and several military positions around it.
The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights (SOHR) reported that ISIS abducted over 130 families from the Hajin camp during the attack. The SDF, which is responsible for the camp, is yet to confirm or deny this.
Earlier the SDF claimed that their fighters had repelled a large-scale ISIS attack in the southeastern Deir Ezzor countryside on October 12. However, the video and photos released by Amaq prove that US-backed forces were manipulating the truth to hide their heavy loses.
