The SDF offensive against the last Isis stronghold in Deir Ezzor, Susah, is in full swing. Jazeera Storm advances, forcing the jihadists of the Islamic State to fall back towards the center
The battle between the SDF and Isis is in full swing at the last stronghold of the Islamic State in Deir Ezzor: Susah. Operation Round Up (Jazeera Storm) troops are advancing against Daesh in the suburbs on two axes: north and east. The goal is to close the militia in the center, isolating them from the rest of the territory controlled by them in the Middle Euphrates River Valley (MERV). It is a small portion in the Syrian province, equal to about 15 square kilometers. 1%, compared to that on which they dictated the law at the time of their maximum success. The bulk of the IS forces in the country is present in the Badia desert, between Homs and Deir Ezzor, where all the militiamen who escaped from the battlefields, who did not prefer to stay in Syria instead of trying to get to the borders, were concentrated.
The evacuations of civilians from the areas of confrontation with Daesh, which takes revenge with targeted killings and attacks, are also continuing. The last one caused the death of three US soldiers in Manbij
Meanwhile, the SDF are racing against the clock to escort civilians fleeing from Susah to safe areas in Deir Ezzor. This is due to the lowering of the temperatures, which drop to zero degrees. By the way, Jazeera Storm is distributing to the displaced blankets, foodstuffs and basic necessities, which will help them to face the journey to the refugee camps and the time needed for their accommodation. The Islamic State, unable to fight the enemy offensive, reacts with a series of targeted killings. From those of the SDF commanders to the terrorist attacks on the US military. The last one happened a few hours ago in Manbij and caused the death of three American soldiers, two locals and 13 civilians.
