On November 6, the US-backed Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) launched a limited attack inside the town of al-Bahrah, which is located north of the town of Hajin, despite its previous decision to hold its military operations in the middle Euphrates River Valley.
US backed forces were able to recapture all the positions, which they lost to ISIS last week during the first hours of their attack, according to the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights (SOHR). Currently, the entire town is under control of the SDF.
More than 45 fighters of the terrorist group were reportedly killed in the attack, which was backed by warplanes of the US-led coalition. The SDF media center said that the coalition had carried out 27 airstrikes on ISIS positions on November 6.
The SDF halted its large-scale military operation against the remaining ISIS fighters in the Euphrates Valley on October 31 following a series of setbacks. However, it appears that the US-led coalition is pressuring the Kurdish-dominated group to resume the operation.
