On December 8, ISIS fighters targeted three gatherings of Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) troops around the town of Hajin in the middle Euphrates River Valley with anti-tank guided missiles (ATGMs). According to the terrorist group’s news agency, Amaq, 15 US-backed fighters were killed and injured as a result of the attacks.

Later, Amaq reported that a military vehicle of the SDF was completely destroyed north of Hajin by ISIS fighters, also with an ATGM.

This extensive use of ATGMs by ISIS fighters indicates that the terrorist group is desperately trying to hold onto its remaining positions inside Hajin, which is under a large-scale attack by the SDF. More than 70% of the town is currently under the control of the US-backed group, according to a recent report of the Syrian Observatory for Humans rights (SOHR).

The US-led coalition, which is backing the attack on Hajin, has stepped up its aerial operations over the town in the last 48 hours. The town’s biggest hospital was reportedly destroyed a day earlier in the bombardment. Eleven civilians were also killed.

Despite ISIS’ effective resistance, the SDF will likely impose its control of the strategic town within few days, if not hours.

    ‘the SDF will likely impose its control of the strategic town within few days, if not hours.’
    Really? I somehow doubt it!

    • You can call me Al

      Not sure about that, the control is needed for the US to airlift the few remaining ISIS / US Marines.

      Its like looking at the weater and weather rapport. I think Adm. can be right in this.

      Many refugges are taken out and SDFs has kept the 70% for several days…

    The SDF has already lost most of Hajin today according to SOHR. The authors of this website need to develop some local Syrian contacts to give accurate reporting.

  • Willing Conscience (The Truths

    Syrialivemap says 17,000 SDF reinforcements have arrived at Hajin over the last 20 days, that makes it more than 11 to 1 now when it comes to numbers, 1,500 Isis versus 17,000 SDF.
    Isis have French and Iraqi artillery hitting them, US and Iraqi airstrikes as well, Iraqi ground forces east of the pocket corralling them in, so how much longer can this pocket of superhumans last.
    lets see if that magic number of 1,500 changes now or not, if it doesn’t I’ll start to think I might really be on the wrong side, maybe God does favour Isis and their evil ideology over the others, maybe God is protecting Isis afterall, NO WAY, Bye Bye Isis, Trump broke the Kurds strike with scab labour, he didn’t need you afterall.
