On July 4, the US-backed Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) captured the villages of Madinah and Qabr Taha in the framework of their military operation against the remaining cells of ISIS in the southern al-Hasakah countryside, according to the Kurdish Hawar News Agency (ANHA).

The SDF-linked news agency said that the SDF and the US-led coalition shelled ISIS’ positions in the two villages with heavy weapons, which forced the terrorist group’s fighters to withdrew.

US-backed forces resumed their military operation against ISIS in the southern al-Haskah countryside on July 1 and secured several areas. Currently, the SDF is only 5km north of the key area of Tuwaymin near the Syrian-Iraqi border.

According to a new report of the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, the US-led coalition and the SDF are planning to launch a fresh military operation against ISIS’ positions along the eastern bank of the Euphrates River.

While SOHR claims that the new military operation will begin “in the upcoming days,” the US-led coalition may delay the operation until the southern al-Hasakah countryside is fully secured.
