DAMASCUS, SYRIA (11:50 A.M.) – On the 65th day of operation Al-Jazirah Storm, the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) pushed further southwards along the eastern side of the Euphrates River amid clashes with ISIS insurgents.

Following the liquidation of two rearguard Islamic State pockets in eastern Deir Ezzor last week, the Kurdish-led SDF took control of Shahil overnight. This frontier village is located 40 kilometers southeast of Deir Ezzor City.

Following the shootout and assault of the village, 11 ISIS militants were neutralized and one a pickup truck destroyed. In the aftermath, the US-supported SDF captured a handful of Kalashnikovs from the deceased jihadists.

In the same time, the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) is about to push southwards along the western side of the Euphrates River. Effectively, the future border between the SAA and SDF is about to be established.

A map depicting the current frontline in eastern Syria can be found here.

These in the photo above are ISIS not SDF though they have SDF flags. SDF use US supplied Humvies. This photo clearly prooves the statement by the Russian Ministry of Defense that the US is not only colludong woth ISIS but using them to attack government forces. That is why the US/UK hacking teams intervened to hack the Russian Ministry of Defense site to post the video footage they have to try and discredit the Russian Ministry of Defense exposure of the truth.
