After securing the town of al-Shaafah, the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) continued their advance in the Middle Euphrates River Valley and liberated the town of Bubadran, according to the Syrian Baladi News outlet.
Local sources said that SDF fighters are currently taking positions around the town of al-Susah, one of the last stronghold of the terrorist group in the strategic region.
A day earlier, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights (SOHR) said that US-backed forces are preparing to launch their final attack against remaining ISIS fighters in the Euphrates Valley. However, it is not clear yet if today’s advance was the beginning of the new attack.
As usual, the SDF press center confirmed that the group’s fighters captured several new positions from ISIS in the Euphrates Valley without providing further details.
Around 3,200 civilians and terrorist feld from the ISIS-held pocket in the last 24 hours, according to a recent report of the SOHR. This indicates that the remaning terorirst group’s positions in Euphrates Valley are on the brink of total collapse.
