US, UK and French Special Forces Are Preparing To Storm Last ISIS Stronghold In Euphrates Valley – Report

US special forces with the Kurdish-led Syrian Democratic Forces in northern Syria, May 26

US, UK and French special forces are preparing to storm the last ISIS stronghold in the middle Euphrates River Valley once it is cleared of civilians and surrendering fighters, the Guardian reported on February 21. Units of the US-backed Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) will also participate in the operation.

The London-based newspaper said that the remaining ISIS fighters are hiding in an area that’s is riddled with tunnels and laced with the improvised explosive device (IEDs) and suicide vehicles. The terrorists are also using civilians, some of them are foreigners, as human shields.

A day earlier, the SDF began evacuating dozens of people from the ISIS-held pocket. According to the Guardian, many of these people were indeed fighters of the terrorist group who were trying to sneak out. However, security forces identified and arrested them at a screening checkpoint.

The Guardian said that the attack on ISIS’ last stronghold was supposed to last for two weeks only. However, the high number of the remaining civilians there has forced US-backed forces to pause the operation.

According to a recent report of the SOHR, the number of the remaining ISIS fighters is no more than 260. All of these fighters are reportedly foreigners who are planning to fight until death.

    Pls little ISIS, hide the gold.
    Dont let them run away with the gold without a fight but spread and hide it somewhere in the Euphrates valley.

    If there’re any civilians they have no chance – western special forces preparing an attack. At the same time isis commanders are waiting for new assignments.

    WTF?? What about SDF forces? Why aren’t THEY storming ‘the last ISIS stronghold’? This is an odd time for FUKUS SF to show up (at least according to that fish wrap, The Guardian). CENTCOM has been blowing the hell out of everything on the east bank up until now – they must be trying to avoid burying that gold in a collapsed tunnel. It will take forever to find it!

    I can only guess FUKUS SF needs to retrieve a few of their FUKUS Chechen ‘assets’ before they slaughter the remaining head-choppers. Russia: you know what to do.

    NATO ‘coalition’ actions in east Syria are an ongoing and ridiculous soap opera – plot line, will they or won’t they route ISIS on east bank of Euphrates… NATO.
    Their actions are all about (western) public justification for remaining in occupation of eastern Syrian territory.
    Even the average western citizens can see through the facade at this point – so apparently it’s time to move the whole NATO dog-and pony-show onto actively attacking Venezuela.

    • Zionism = EVIL

      The FACT is the Americunts and NATO poodles have been transporting their ISIS proxy terrorists to new digs. The fat orange dotard Trump is now echoing the Zionist masters line and saying that 200 Americunt “peace makers” will remain in Syria, this is a fig leaf for NATO poodles to increase their paw print in both Syria and Iraq.

    Now that they have the land they wanted to set up their ex-Ba’athist Sunni (Iraqi) country to serve as a bulwark against Iran for the Saudi’s/Israel, they’ll consolidate, get everything together, and then move across the border into Iraq, all the way to Baghdad. Unless someone stops them.

    We’ll this aint going to be the US led Coalition of the killing coming into wipe there sadist proxies to the pits of Hell. I’d say a few cups of tea and an agreement to ferry there families to Afghanistan with 10% of the Gold stolen from Syria 440millionUSD to allow there comrades settle into a life of Comfort.
    The US will then butcher the innocent civilians later this weekend to declare ISIS forces although limited to a couple of thousand stills a threat to the SDF and remaining forcesfoff the Coalition. Thus allowing them the ttime to remain in Syria.
