Amaq said that 14 fighters of the SDF were killed by ISIS during the clashes around Hawi Abu Hamam. Moreover, a Humvee, and a vehicle of the SDF were destroyed with IEDs near the village.

ISIS also killed a fighter of the SDF and injured four others after targeting them with IEDs around the village of Drng south of the Omar oil fields, according to Amaq. The ISIS-linked news agency said that two other fighters of the SDF were killed in Drng by ISIS snipers.

Some experts predicted that ISIS may focus its attacks on the SDF in the upcoming months, as it lost its last positions in the al-Jazeera region in western Iraq, and on the western bank of the Euphrates River in eastern Syria.

      Ever heard of a pack of rats eating a cat alive in an alleyway? I can tell you it is neither a pretty sight nor anything you ever want to hear again in your life. Let us hope the rats keep fighting among themselves for a while.

    Where is the mighty USAF now. Or have they gone home for Christmas ?

    I would think that the families of the dead SDF are rather pissed in the knowledge that their ISIS pals are putting on a show for the world audience.

  • Enkidu

    I don’t know what is easier to believe. That they outright stage these fights or if some hardline elements of ISIS are in fact resisting their leader’s attempt to merge them and the SDF as a single force.

    IS is getting more active now that Assad has started supporting them with arms and freeing captured fighters, as long as they promise not to attack SAA and Iranian proxies.

    One can see this in Hama region but also to some extent in the east.

    Nevertheless, IS will be eradicated east of the Euphrates in the coming weeks.

    West of the river, they will continue for a long time I am afraid, given the aid they receive from Assad, which is really stupid given the past but the man does not care about his country, only about money and power.

      WOW…LOL…Keep it up..You will believe it someday

    • Turbofan

      “ISIS will be eradicated east of the Euphrates in the coming weeks.”

      Wast that said of the Taliban 16 years ago?

      • Little Sip

        No, Turbofan…no one was saying the Taliban would be eradicated east of the Euphrates 16 years ago. Get with it.

      Are you familiar with psychological concept of ‘projection’? Because that is what you are doing – projecting the real documented actions and behaviors of US-SOF/SDF, as revealed in last weeks with the leaked negotiated agreements of US-SOF/SDF with ISIS in east Dier Ezzore. That agreement specifically negotiated a ceasefire in mutual areas of east Dier Ezzore and explicitly stated that US-SOF/SDF would not attack ISIS in ongoing operations against the SAA. Your constant, seemingly daily, attempts at low level disinformation, via obvious projection and outright fabrication, are both predictable and dreary.

      Hahahaha kurds are total shit! Iran, Iraq, Syrian Arab’s and turkey are gonna fuck the Kurds sooo hard whilst Hezbollah takes care of Israel.
      U have a problem with terrorists fighting terrorists? That’s how u know who the real winner of the war is. HTS are gonna be over run real quick. Raqqa and Omar oil fields will be syria,s again because the Kurds are going to hand it over to assad, then bow and shake his hand. Either that or the Kurds will be massacred.

  • World_Eye

    Oh-oho nice see how the Daesh can stab you in the back, Yes so you stupid proxy idiots Kurdish scums keep making deals with Isis and you will get this oh fuck yeah.

  • Turbofan

    That was bound to happen. DIdnt ISIS fighters become part of the SDF after these American deals east of the Euphrates?

    • You can call me Al

      Yes, but the true fanatical types remained under ISIS. At this stage, we can only guess if is internal and the SDF sell outs or the fanatics.

  • John Mason

    Was expected that the US turns their proxies onto its’ ‘allies’ to justify their statement that the Daesh have not been defeated.

  • Hodei

    La verdad es que los continuos combates entre los terroristas del HTS y el ISIS en Hama, y las FDS y el ISIS en Deir-Ezzor, están siendo positivísimos para el Ejercito Sirio y sus aliados populares, ya que sus enemigos están diezmándose entre ellos, mientras estos siguen avanzando en todos los frentes.
    Parece ser que a los EEUU y Saudíes les esta saliendo mal el plan de intentar estorbar el avance del ejercito sirio, ya que sus grupos armados ilegales son los que están siendo derrotados por el ejercito sirio y no pueden ni contra el ISIS
