US-backed Forces Retake All ISIS Positions Along Syrian-Iraqi Border On Eastern Bank Of Euphrates

On August 4, the US-backed Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) ended its military operation in the southern al-Hasakah countryside and the eastern Deir Ezzor countryside after imposing control of more than 120km of the Syrian-Iraqi border, according to the Kurdish Hawar News Agency (ANHA).

As result of the operation, the SDF sealed the Syrian-Iraqi border on the eastern bank of the Euphrates River. The southern part of the border is controlled by the SAA. Thus, the border line there is now secured from both sides.

“After the liberation of the strategic town of al-Dashisha and the entire Syrian-Iraqi border up to the town of al-Baghuz, we are now in the desert of Deir al-Ezzor city’s countryside and it is completely liberated from ISIS’ mercenaries,” Bakuz Haskah, a field commander of the SDF, told ANHA.

The US-led coalition launched a military operation against the remaining ISIS fighters in al-Dashisha on June 3. Within weeks, the SDF managed to capture the center of the region along with dozens of villages in the southern al-Hasakah countryside and in the eastern Deir Ezzor countryside.

The next target of the SDF and the US-led coalition is the ISIS-held pocket along the eastern bank of the Euphrates river. A day earlier, US-backed forces evacuated thousands of civilians from the pocket, which hints that an operation will begin there soon.

    How can US backed forces retake something which was never theirs?

    • Ken Nonickname Nonecknom Under

      Was it taken or given? Did they even have to fight for it?

      • Villainess

        It seems the US may have good control over these third? generation (Mujaheddin-Al Queda-ISIS) clandestine shock troops. Having your own terrorists can do wonders. Just ask the Saudi tribe about their Wahabbi buddies.

          U.S. controls Saddam’s ex-Baathist Sunni military leadership and they control them, with U.S. and Saudi money, training and equipment and with Mossad involvement at all levels.

        just bought them new hockey dresses, nothing retaken :)

      Because the US backed forces still consider themselves as Syrians!

        Syrians don’t ask for help from the enemy, the US.

    US-BACKED FORCES RETAKE ALL ISIS POSITIONS ALONG SYRIAN-IRAQI BORDER ON EASTERN BANK OF EUPHRATES

    I think South Front have recognized Syrian division. Syria is one country and the nation from Golan Heights to Hassaka is one Syrian nation.

    Russia, Turkey, Iran and Syria have already slammed the US and Israeli conspiracy of division against Syria and other regional states.

    Ok so the US troops have no excuse no more to be on Syrian soil and must leave immediately

    • Bill Wilson

      Assad would shit his pants if the US suddenly withdrew from Syria.

    This was the plan all along, to give Saddam’s ex-military Ba’athist Sunni leadership their own country that straddles western Syria and eastern Iraq all the way to Baghdad. CIA went into Iraq early and bought them off to stop their IED bombs and to offer them a deal to be secret leadership of ISIS as a means to the end of having their own country. For Israel and the U.S. the goal was (is) to set up another bulwark between Iran and Israel (and Saudi’s). They’re going ahead with their plans to bring them to completion, which could happen but I hope not.

      Has US bought off Moqtada al Sadr, ….who Cursed Assad and Iraqi PMU militias?
      Lol….who isn’t bought off in Iraq by US $$$?

      Iran will have to dig in to keep their Shia political machina alive in Bugdud.
      You could be correct on US own the Iraqi Baathist and maybe get them back in power vs
      Shia Political.

      Sadr was outspoken voice encite Shia to fight US boots.
      PMU .. (Before Bugdud pulled them away from military operations)….vowed to fight
      US troops remaining in Iraq.

      US probably does not want US body bags while Netanyahu roars against Iran.
      Dupe US Sheeple will connect the dots that fight Iran will be C 17 loads of body bags into
      Andrew’s Airforce base at Midnight.

    Hopefully the SAA has some observers embedded with the SDF to see how to put the squeeze on ISIS units trapped out in the desert.
