BEIRUT, LEBANON (2:55 P.M.) – A week-long offensive by Islamic State militants against US-backed forces along the eastern shore of the Euphrates River in the Syrian province of Deir Ezzor has left a couple hundred pro-Coalition fighters dead according to the terrorist group’s estimates.

One week ago, ISIS kicked-off a do-or-die style offensive operation against US-led Arab and Kurdish paramilitary groups along the eastern shore of the Euphrates code-named ‘Revenge for the Virtuous Women.’

The assault was aimed at lifting the siege off of ISIS forces in the town of Gharanij and the village of Bahra. In the event the terrorist group achieved just that, using two car bombs to break the encirclement, and whilst their positions around Bahra were fully restored, Gharanij nonetheless remains contested.

According an info-graph released by official ISIS sources, the terrorist group’s seven day operation resulted in the death of 185 pro-Coalition fighters (20 by sniper fire) as well as the destruction eight military vehicles.

Realistically speaking, the claim made by ISIS probably is not too far from the truth. At the same time, their own losses are probably identical, if not slightly more.

Daesh inflates its results, it’s obvious.
There’s already no more virgin goats in their shithadist paradise, now they’re shagging prairie dogs with duct tape all around to not blow them!
