On February 10, the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) advanced deep inside the ISIS-held positions in the middle Euphrates River Valley and liberated 2km2 from the terrorist group.
“US-led coalition warplanes carried out 32 airstrikes on positions and fortifications of ISIS, as a result 4 supply roads, 19 positions, a motorcycle, a mortar cannon and an ammo depot were destroyed,” the US-backed group’s press center said in its daily release.
The press center added that the coalition airstrikes and the clashes on the ground killed 37 fighters and commanders of terrorist group in the last 24 hours.
A day earlier, the SDF announced that it had launched its final attack on the ISIS-held pocket in the Euphrates Valley. However, several local sources said that the US-led coalition and the terrorist group have reached a secret evacuation agreement.
The situation in the Euphrates Valley will likely become clearer in the upcoming few hours as all reports indicate that the remaining ISIS fighters are now besieged within a very small pocket north of the town of al-Baghuz al-Fawqani.
