ISIS fighters in the Euphrates Valley took advantage of a powerful storm that hit the region on October 25 and launched two attacks on several positions of the US-backed Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF).

During the first attack, ISIS fighters stormed several military positions in the SDF-held al-Tanka oil field north of the town of Gharanij. As a result, 15 US-backed fighters were killed and 4 vehicles of the SDF were destroyed.

Later, the terrorist group attacked 9 positions of the SDF north of the town of al-Shaafah and managed to reach the Syrian-Iraqi border. The ISIS-linked news agency Amaq said that 3 vehicles were destroyed by ISIS fighters with different anti-tank weapons in the course of this attack.

The SDF has not commented on the ISIS claims so far. However, local observers believe that US-backed forces managed to restore control of all positions because ISIS fighters usually withdraw after such attacks.

ISIS fighters have launched several similar attacks since the beginning of this month in an attempt to undermine the SDF influence in the region and force it to stop its military campaign in the Euphrates Valley. So far, this tactic has indeed led to a reduction of the SDF’s offensive actions in the area.

    Notice ISIS never attacks Russia and Iran. It is obvious to anyone with half a brain that ISIS is backed by Russia and Iran. They have been ordered by their backers to attack Kurds, US, French and UK controlled areas. Check out the SF article documenting the 4 truckloads of water, food, ammunition … given to ISIS by Russia, Syria and Iran.

      U are either nuts or dumb, might be both

      • HardHawk

        nope is just a paid troll and he shows how intelligent hasbaras are. Is better to block this kind of posters rather than give them the floor by answering them.

    • FlorianGeyer

      Can you explain why ISIS never attacked Israel ?
      Can you explain why ISIS have been airlifted from Syria and Iraq in Black Hawk helicopters ?

      • HardHawk

        Seriously now… you try to debate with an obvious paid hasbara?

        Why?

        • FlorianGeyer

          He is a new one and tis time to block the sayanim .

          You are right :)

    • Jim Prendergast

      Apply the reasoning of R Trojson to his own post. Whoever he does not attack must therefore be his backer.

      • Promitheas Apollonious

        nope just block the moron no need to step so many levels down to answer it then you lose your self respect beside the fact you can not beat a paid hasbara on the retard level.

      So disconnected. ISIS is an Israel-USA-NATO creation with the help of Jordan-Saudis-Qatar-Turkey, and this is well known since 2013. You came too late in this business, but think you can still can learn about the truth of all of this, if you want to.

      • Promitheas Apollonious

        dont feed the hasbara trolls. Not advisable in my opinion
        .
