The US-backed Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) have made another step to a full elimination of the ISIS-held pocket in the Euphrates Valley.
On Feburary 13, SDF units, backed up by US-led coalition aircraft and artillery, seized the area of Sheikh Hamad and most of the al-Khanafirah area. The ISIS-held pocket shrinked to a number of buildings on the bank of the Euphrates River.
According to reports, the SDF gave ISIS commanders 24 hours to surrender. If the terrorists refuse, the SDF will kick off a final storm of their positions.
The situation is developing.
