Ankara amasses forces on the borders of Raqqa and Hasaka. In addition, it holds exercises with allied militias and increases the pressure of artillery against the Kurds.
Isis at Deir Ezzor is at his final stages by his own fault. The Jazeera Storm SDF control most of the stronghold of the Islamic State and advance. This was due to the jihadist attack on Baghuz Fawqani, who removed resources and men to the defense
Isis at Deir Ezzor is at his final stages, even Marashidah has been widely conquered by the SDF. Operation Round Up (Jazeera Storm) troops are penetrated the stronghold of the Islamic State, closing the jihadists in only a couple of districts, and advancing towards them. These no longer have an escape route and it is thought that the village will fall already in the day. The rapid collapse of the town is largely due to the surprise offensive, which Daesh launched in Baghuz Fawqani. Many jihadists, hoping to create an escape corridor in the Middle Euphrates River Valley (MERV) south to Iraq, attacked Syrian fighters, abandoning their comrades and bringing with them resources and supplies. As a result, the IS defense lines in the area have collapsed, allowing the Arab-Kurdish force to break easily.
The bulk of the remaining Daesh forces in the MERV is closed in a small portion of Baghuz Fawqani territory. Their only escape route in Deir Ezzor is to the west, in the direction of Badia, through the Euphrates
Now, the bulk of the Isis militia in Deir Ezzor is closed in a tiny portion of territory in Baghuz Fawqani, attacked on three sides by the SDF. Moreover, without any possibility of escape except through the Euphrates in the direction of the Badia desert. In the territory of the Syrian army (SAA), more permeable. Accordingly, it is believed that the Islamic State in the MERV will be definitively defeated in the week and that the Syrian province will be declared officially free shortly. The attack on Jazeera Storm was a desperate attempt by the Daesh jihadists, doomed to fail. Even if they had succeeded in moving towards Iraq, in fact, the ISF were already ready to react by hitting anyone who ventured into the buffer zone between the two countries. Both with air and land-based assets. Therefore, there would be no way to get to the border.
