SDF Repels Large ISIS Attack, Continues Advance In Euphrates Valley (Map)

By: sdf-press.com

On September 19, the US-backed Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) repelled an ISIS attack on its newly captured positions inside the town of al-Baghuz al-Fawqani in the southeastern Deir Ezzor countryside, according to the SDF media center. US-backed forces destroyed two vehicle-borne improvised explosive devices (VBIEDS) during the clashes in the town.

After repelling the attack, the SDF continued its advance in the ISIS-held pocket and captured 20 positions in the vicinity of the towns of al-Shaddadah, al-Kasrah and Haij. The group’s media center said that 5 US-backed fighters and 25 members of ISIS were killed in the last 24 hours.

US-led coalition warplanes backed the SDF during the battles and carried out 6 airstrikes on positions and fortifications of the terrorist group, mainly in al-Shaddadah.

The SDF will likely impose control of al-Baghuz al-Fawqani in the upcoming hours. The next target of US-backed forces will be the town of al-Susah, which is located 20km south of Hajin.

    There’s no question about how this will end, but we’ll have to fight our way through anyway.

      I’m just wondering about how many ISIS fighters are crossing the river with bundles of cash in hand to pay for their safe passage into the southern desert?
