SDF Spokesman: Battle Against ISIS Will End Within Few Days

Support SouthFront

The ongoing battle against the remaining ISIS fighters in the middle Euphrates River Valley will end within a few days, a spokesman for the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) told the Rojava Network on January 31.

“The battle against the Islamic State in Deir Ezzor countryside lasted for a long time and was filled with surprises,” Mustafa Bali added while explaining that the large number of terrorists who are surrendering is a sign of ISIS defeat.

According to a new report by the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights (SOHR), the remaining fighters of ISIS are now besieged within a 4km2 pocket on the eastern bank of the Euphrates River. The monitoring group said that these terrorists are currently trying to protect the leadership of ISIS.

The collapse of ISIS’ defense encouraged more than 36,250 people to flee the Euphrates Valley. The number includes at least 23,000 Iraqi citizens who are reportedly refusing to return to their country.

It remains unclear if the SDF and the US-led coalition are planning to storm the last ISIS positions or to push the terrorist group into accepting a surrender agreement. In both cases, the battle appears to be in its final chapter.

This is the only region where really SDF fought ISIS, in such a small piece of land, and it took so long to take it over….well, this says a lot about SDF fighters. Any way, it is a good news and congratulation to SDF for this victory. It is time to think about become Syria citizens and to leave weapons.

“…reportedly refusing to return to their country….”

Like they have a vote? Just stuff them on trucks, drive them to Iraq and turn them over to Iraqi forces. What happens to them after that… who cares?

Brother Ma

Yep! They are head choppers too. Get rid of them. Bussing to the border for shooting if Assad does not want to do it himself. I have no time for invaders.

SDF is well informed so ISIS is going to be airlift to Venezuela in few days.

Fake, bullshit news once again. Daesh have now taken back control of Baghuz at-Tahtani. You CANNOT trust the SDF!!!

Brother Ma

I agree. Most Kurds are head choppers anyway. Most voted for Erdogan in Turkey and Iraqi Kurds are petroleum- buddies with Erdogan. All the same sh*t. Different bucket.
