On October 24, ISIS launched a counter attack on several positions of the US-backed Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) around the town of al-Susah in the southeastern Deir Ezzor countryside, according to the terrorist group news agency Amaq.

In details, ISIS fighters killed at least 11 US-backed fighters and injured 4 others during the clashes inside and around al-Susah. Furthermore, the terrorist group shelled the aforementioned SDF positions with 65 mortar rounds and rocket-propelled grenades.

From its side, the SDF announced that its fighters repelled ISIS counter attack killing 51 terrorists. According to the group’s media center, US-led coalition warplanes carried out 18 airstrikes on gatherings and vehicles of ISIS, while the coalition rocket launchers launched 7 heavy rockets on positions of the terrorist group.

“In the evening, the terrorists tried to launch a counter attack on our fighters’ positions from two directions, and heavy clashes erupted in the center of the town of al-Susah, which the the terrorist group elements tried to break into … However, our fighters confronted them,” the SDF media center said in its daily press release.

A day earlier, SDF fighters stormed al-Susah and managed to capture several positions around it, including the area of Hawi al-Susah. However, it appears that the remaining ISIS fighters are willing to fight till the end in order to keep the key town under their control.

    I do not see any evidence at all about this. These pictures mean nothing.

      What kind of evidence do you need as proof of the attack?
      Its “just another attack”, so any photo would be illustrative “enough”.

      And as you should know, a photo is not a definitive proof of anything but that cameras exists
