Isis lost its last stronghold in the Syrian province of Deir Ezzor: Susah. SDF of Jazeera Storm conquered it in 24 hours of battle and the Islamic State failed to resume it
Isis in Syria lost its last stronghold to Deir Ezzor: Susah. Operation Round Up SDF (Jazeera Storm) drove out the Islamic State in about 24 hours of battle. Then, Daesh jihadists launched a counterattack to try and resume it, but they failed. Now, the last targets before IS is definitively annihilated in the Middle Euphrates River Valley (MERV) are 3: Marashidah, Safafinah and Shajlah. The Coalition has already begun to prepare the ground for the imminent land offensive with a series of air raids and artillery bombings. Meanwhile, the northern and eastern axis of the Syrian fighters have begun to head south to the three places. The southern one, however, is going up north from Baghuz Fawqani. In fact, there are clashes in the area of al-Filastin.
The end of Daesh in the Middle Euphrates River Valley (MERV) is getting closer and closer. The jihadists control only three places and no longer want to fight for the Caliphate. The only goal is to escape for not being captured or killed
The loss of Susah for Isis is a very concrete signal, about the imminent final defeat of the jihadists at Deir Ezzor. The last stronghold fell, the Islamic State no longer has safe places to hide or hide. Moreover, it is running out of resources. The conquest of the city by the SDF on one side has taken away access to large militia weapons, munitions, explosives and factories. On the other, it has diminished the possibility for IS to use civilians as human shields. The last three places still controlled by the fundamentalists, in fact, are less densely populated than the big centers. Added to this is the morale of terrorists is around “zero”, and their only objective today is to seek escape routes to avoid being captured or killed. There are fewer those still willing to fight for the Caliphate.
