Numbers Show US-led Operation To Eliminate Hajin Pocket In Syria Led To Growth Of ISIS Presence There

by: sdf-press.com

On October 18, Col. Sean Ryan, a spokesman for the US-led coalition, told the Washington-based Sawa Radio station that ISIS still maintains some hideouts in the Iraqi provinces of Kirkuk and al-Anbar. The spokesman also stressed that the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) is continuing its operations against the terrorist group in Syria.

“Iraqi security forces are pursuing militants’ cells, and the Syrian Democratic Forces is fighting them in an ongoing operation in the Euphrates Valley in Syria,” Col. Rayan told Sawa Radio during an interview.

Furthermore, Col. Rayan said that the US-led coalition information indicates that there is between 1,500 and 2,000 fighters of ISIS in the Euphrates Valley in Syria.

It’s curious that on August 14 Maj. Gen. Felix Gedney, British deputy commander for strategy and support of the coalition, stated that only 1,000 terrorists remained in the valley.

The numbers provided by Col. Rayan and Maj. Ge. Gedney show that the ISIS presence in Syria’s Euphrates Valley has actually increased since the beginning of the US-led coalition operation there in early September.

The only logical explanation for the growth of ISIS presence in the Euphrates Valley will be that the US-led coalition is allowing the remaining terrorist cells to gather there for some reason. Over the last few years, the coalition struck several deals with ISIS in the cities of Manbij, Tabqah and Raqqa. These deals allowed the terrorists to regroup in a similar way.

      • Tudor Miron

        Just get lost. There’s no point debating with your kind.

    • Empire’s Frontiers

      It’s always been ISUS, hasn’t it?

    Perfect opportunity for Syria to send its’ military east of the Euphrates; quite obvious that the US and coalition are not up to the task and time they stepped. US and coalition definitely can’t dispute that and as for the Kurds they either join the SAA or Assad removes their citizenship, makes them stateless and lists them as terrorists, Erdogan won’t object to that.

    • Bill Wilson

      Why, when the SAA is struggling with the remaining ISIS pockets in the southern desert?

      • Sinbad2

        Because the US supplies them from Iraq.

        • Jens Holm

          Not even You believe that.

        • You can call me Al

          I doubt that now, but you could be right.

    • Jens Holm

      ????

      • John Mason

        One doesn’t expect you to comprehend and unfortunately I can’t be bothered lowering myself to the infant level.

    • You can call me Al

      I would agree with you in a second, if it wasn’t the devious Yankers and their hooked nosed buddies in play here. We both are on the same side, but this could be a plan, to accomplish exactly what you propose …. in my view, let them carry on pretending the ISIS vs SDF BS, whilst keeping focused on current battles – the East will come in a while anyways…… My view only.

  • Bill Wilson

    Assad doesn’t mind busing ISIS out of cities so they can cause him problems elsewhere.

    • Sinbad2

      Why travel by bus when the US will fly ISIS worldwide.
      The US has now transported its head chopping army to Afghanistan Libya and the Philippines.
      All terrorists fly Air America.

    It seems the more the americans, allegedly combating isis, the stronger it becomes both in numbers and nato weapons. What I would like to be known is how many of this isis terrorists are kurds and uk/usrael special forces are changing uniforms according to the situation.

    • Jens Holm

      You want to know nothing.

      • Promitheas Apollonious

        not from you, empty shell.

  • Merijn

    The United States…IsraHell….Wahhabistan…the United Kingdom… Great Creators of All Terrorists… Chop the Head off the Snake and No More Terrorist-Breeding…their Leadership should be Overthrown & Hanged or Beheaded… give’m a taste of their own Medicine before they go to Hell…

    • You can call me Al

      I’ll tell you one thing Merijn – if the United Kingdom elitist scum do not execute BREXIT as it was voted for, the Leadership WILL be Overthrown & Hanged…….. it is a start anyway.

      • Merijn

        Yeah good days…these days… they are under Attack from all sides…and the fun haven’t even begun yet…. promising….

        • You can call me Al

          Strange times indeed:

          What intrigues me the most, is why the US, UK, France and Germany + many others, are making such a fuss about this Saudi dissident ?.

          Are the “elite” turning on each other ?.

          Anyway, in my view, something is up with something, that will have huge ramifications on us all – maybe good, maybe bad.

          • Merijn

            The West wants to Dump Loose Cannon Mohammed Bin Salman… he is done….He screwed up a promised Quick Victory in Yemen… His Western Backed Wahhabi Takfiri Headchoppers were Defeated… Clown Prince MbS turned out to be a Total Failure… the Jews & Freemasons are done with him… They will put another Puppet in place…. This should be prevented at all costs… because it will be from the same Jewish House of Saud…. there needs to be a Coup d’Etat and Kill the entire Crime-Family after…so that they will never Return…the Wahhabi King already took back his Power…that ain’t exactly what we are waiting for….

          • You can call me Al

            Yes, I think you are right. I think the death knoll was the come back to trump stating “we shall survive 2,000 years” or whatever it was…..

            Lose MBS and I think you will have a civil war in SA.

            If the US lose the SA, you have the death of the Petrodollar.

            Strange times Merijn in my head.

            PS Dinner + drinks on Friday ?.

          • Merijn

            The Death of the Petro-Dollar is what the World is waiting for… but they want to do it in a Controlled Manner (Economic interests)..Russia Pulls Wahhabistan away from the U.S…with the result that the U.S. will stage a Coup in Wahhabistan…and the Jewish House of Saud will end up like many Royals ended up before….Otherwise the rest of the World will suffer too much from it…

            It seems to work out fine… intelligent People at Work that do not want to escalate this whole thing into a Nuclear Disaster…. Trumpster & His Gangster-Buddies are screaming their Lungs out… to no effect…

            Friday is fine… just let me know..
