US-Backed Forces Kill Ten Fighters Of ISIS Around Al-Shajlah In Euphrates Valley

By: sdf-press.com

On September 23, heavy clashes erupted between the US-backed Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) and ISIS in the vicinity of the town of al-Shajlah, which is located 1km north of the newly liberated town of al-Baghuz al-Fawqani.

The SDF media center said that US-led coalition warplanes supported SDF fighters and carried out two airstrikes on positions of the terrorist group around al-Shajlah. At least 10 ISIS fighters were killed as a result of the clashes and the airstrikes.

Few hours earlier, US-backed forces advance 1km towards the town of al-Susah, north of al-Shajlah, and established new positions around al-Baghuz al-Fawqani following clashes with ISIS. According to the SDF media center, 11 terrorists were killed and 3 vehicles were destroyed.

The SDF is expected to launch a ground attack on al-Susah in the upcoming few days. Once the town is captured, most of ISIS elements will be trapped inside a narrow strip of land between the towns of Hajin and al-Sha’fah.

    This report contradicted earlier report which says “US forces evacuated ISIS commanders”

    US backed forces cannot be killing ISIS and at the same time US is evacuating ISIS commanders.
    it doesn’t make any sense.

    • Travis Kelso

      You don’t say?

      • Jens Holm

        Yes, he does. Hard to believe there was no evacuation at all. ISIS has not been supported by USA d´for years.

        They invested in YPG+J O = now SDF hard against it.

    • Sinbad2

      No, the US flies out its troops, and then kills the witnesses.
      Think of the headlines if a captured ISIS guy admitted his officers were British and American.
      I think they call it cleaning up the loose ends.

        Actually we do think and most think most of Yours is wrong, because most of it is totally unthinkable and not even as good as stones in bread.

      Dude, it’s time to wake up. The Saudi and Qatari recruited and pay-waged low level useful idiots all get killed off to shut them up – the US controlled and pay-waged Muslim Brotherhood, and their released ex-prisoners, from Iraq insurgency just get flown off to next conflict zone – ie either to northern Afghanistan or Iraqi-Kurdistan border with Iran. The US have been creating and moving Sunni armed factions around the region since late 1970’s – it aint gonna stop anytime soon.

      • Jens Holm

        They supported ISIS as fire against fire hard for a while. When ISIS turned around and even started terror outisde Syria enough was enough.

        But You still are un Your 10 line not updated irrelevancies.

        • Bob

          What?

    • Jens Holm

      You find no real source for that evacuation at all. Believe as You wish. I think its totally fake.

    That looks like an upscale neighborhood.
