ISIS Reemerges Near Hajin, Kills And Injures 13 US-Backed Fighters

ISIS cells have killed and injured 13 fighters of the US-Backed Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) near Hajin in the Middle Euphrates River Valley in an attack marking its return to the strategic city that was cleared last year.

The terrorist group’s news agency, Amaq, said that a truck transporting several SDF fighters was successfully targeted with an improvised-explosive device (IED) while it was moving in the vicinity of Hajin.

“As a result, 7 apostates who were aboard it [the truck] were killed and 6 others were injured, Praise be to god,” a statement by Amaq, released on April 20, reads.

Hajin, which controls several key roads in the Euphrates Valley, was liberated from ISIS in December of 2018. Back then, the US-led coalition and the SDF allowed hundreds of ISIS fighters to withdraw from the city.

The new attack indicates that the ISIS cells are still active in Hajin, despite multiple security operations by the US-led coalition. The upcoming few months may witness more, and even bigger, attacks by the terrorist group in this area.

      Now, when I talked to God, I knew He’d understand
      He said, “Stick by my side and I’ll be your guiding hand
      But don’t ask me what I think of you
      I might not give the answer that you want me to”
      Ooh, well

    “Back then, the US-led coalition and the SDF allowed hundreds of ISIS fighters to withdraw from the city.“

    This is what happens when you do a half ass job and dont eliminate scum when ever you find it and allow it to live and fight another day. What I am wondering was turkish backed terrorists or usrael backed terrorists who get the credit for the attack.

    • Jens Holm

      Its a totally incorrect descriptions. ISIS held and kept the well fortified Haijin, which was a town of 40.000 with inviroment, until they well planned withdrew.

      That made a lot of sense, because then You can cower the rest better.

      Its totally stupidity to let ISIS withdraw and then fight them at the rest. So that was not what happend,

      USA/SDF did not “allow”. It would be stupidity by ISIS to let good strong leftover trooops be defeated in Hajin.

      You seeemes to have forgotten that Hajin was under attack for several months and there was heavy clever counterattacks from it.

    “‘Praise be to god,’ a statement by Amaq, released on April 20, reads.”

    God? (!) Muslims, especially Jihadis, do not believe in God. They believe in a demon named, “Allah,” (Mohamed is his prophet). Who wrote this? It wasn’t “ISIS.” (Granted, whoever wrote it had the decency to used “god” — lower case.)

    • Sinbad2

      Allah is Arabic for God. When a Muslim says Allah Akbar he is saying God is great, many Americans say virtually the same thing when they say praise the Lord.
      In both cases it demonstrates an inferior mind.

    “Hajin, which controls several key roads in the Euphrates Valley, was liberated from ISIS in December of 2018. Back then, the US-led coalition and the SDF allowed hundreds of ISIS fighters to withdraw from the city.”

    Very good total bias of the worst kind.

    The Empire strikes back.

    The US will never leave Syria in peace, they still occupy part of Cuba, are still active in Somalia and Sudan.

    The American obsession with vengeance is a financial black hole that achieves nothing except displaying the national insanity.

    • Astrid Watanabe

      “…..displaying the national insanity”
      I don’t remember who said: “whom God wants to destroy he makes insane first.”
      Looks like we are well on the way.

      • Barba_Papa

        Sounds like a variation of the ancient Greek saying ‘Those whom the Gods wish to destroy they first strike with hubris’.
