US-backed Forces Captured Tabqa Town. Part Of Tabqa Dam Is Still Controlled By ISIS

The US-backed Syrian Democratic Forces have reportedly recaptured the whole area of the Syrian city of Tabqa from ISIS terrorists.

According to pro-SDF sources, ISIS terrorists have withdrawn from the town to the ISIS-held part of the nearby Tabqa dam.

It’s unclear how many ISIS members remain besieged in the dam area.

In April 2017, pro-SDF and US sources argued that there were about 700-800 ISIS fighters inside the town. However, no photo or videos evidence were released that could confirm that this number of ISIS members were neutralized inside the town.

There is a notable chance that a majority of ISIS fighters has left the town of Tabqa via some kind of “open corridor”.

    How’s your airbase coming along? Ready for C-5s yet?

      I read that the runway is largely ok but there is debris everywhere.

      Could be that SDF will try to repair a few migs21 by cannibalizing the remains and maybe get a few spare parts from east european Nato countries as far as they still have them

        Nice mig21 but minor beside the fleets of A-10 and C-5 with M-1 that US can fly in once it’s functioning. SDF might get a bunch of OV-10 or something too like Iraqi air force. or even A-10A.
