DAMASCUS, SYRIA (5:25 P.M.) – A US-backed Syrian group continues to seize more territories from the Islamic State, thus inching closer to the group’s main stronghold along the Syria-Iraq borders.

The offensive, heavily backed by US airstrikes, has so far granted the Syrian Democratic Forces over control over 30 towns and villages with the main objective to seize ISIS’ bastion in south Hasakah; Dashishah .

According to SDF sources, some 700-800 ISIS militants have been killed during the assault launched nearly 2 weeks ago, mostly of Tunisian and Afghan nationalities.

A Kurdish commander spoke of the tactics used by the terror group in the ongoing battles. “ISIS heavily relies on mines and IEDs to curb the SDF advance given the intensity and scale of our attack”.

“Our forces now are only 3 km away from Dashishah after taking over 2 new towns yesterday”, he added.

Not interesting : you don’t fight a cockroaches infestation by killing them one by one! You use roach-traps and insecticide… Any way, they can’t even fight like their miserable prophet with the sword, they can’t do without a Kalashnikov and Mikhail Kalashnikov was an atheist communist! Nobody is more Kâfir than a commie! Your roaches can’t even fight without the Kâfir’s weapons! And it was the French (so the original Crusader) who invented the carbine! Cars were also invented by the French ‘Crusaders’, so was the manned hot air balloon, the blimp, the aircraft, the air-forces… You’re not even able… Read more »
