The Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) and the US-led coalition continue their struggle against the ISIS-held pocket in the Euphrates Valley. According to an official version, SDF units, backed by US special forces and aircraft, have been actively fighting ISIS there for a few months already. However, no real progress has been achieved on the ground.

Most recently, ISIS even carried out a large attack on SDF positions there. The group claimed that 32 SDF members were killed. The SDF said that the advance had been repelled. Pro-Kurdish sources also said that the SDF had captured a vehicle and an armed drone from ISIS.

Considering the situation in the Euphrates Valley, local experts doubt that the SDF and the US-led coalition want to defeat ISIS there so much as they claim in their statements.

    Please kindly understand that both SDF and ISIS are backed by U.S. They are making publicity in order to stag on Syrian territory forever.
