American Fighting for ISIS in Custody in Syria

But the US-backed Syrian Democratic Forces recently announced their own push toward the city, "Operation Jazeera Storm", and a group of SDF fighters have made rapid gains, capturing some 300 square kilometers from ISIS along the Khabur River, which intersects with the Euphrates River just south of the city. Three year long ISIS' siege of the city was broken by Syrian army a few days ago. Deir ez-Zor city is not the goal of the SDF, according to the coalition. Nawaf Khalil, a spokesman for the Kurdish-led militia, said they'll try to prevent Assad's army from gaining ground east of the Euphrates. "Advance units have successfully crossed the Euphrates and are holding positions on its eastern bank". On Friday, the SDF captured Raqqa University. It has repeatedly fired salvoes of Kalibr missiles into Syria, from both surface warships and submarines.

The Trump administration has indicated that it doesn't have an interest in the greater Syrian civil war, while also professing a need to contain Iran's influence in the region. The deal included providing information on the location of 10 Lebanese soldiers presumably killed by the jihadists, returning the bodies of Hizbollah and Iranian fighters and releasing Hizbollah fighters held prisoner by ISIL. That has become the focus.

"Many have carried what they can of their belongings and gone to the villages and cities of the eastern countryside for more safety for them and their family", according to one man in his 60s who fled with his family of seven to the city of Abu Kamal to settle temporarily.

The Deir ez-Zor city is located in Syria's east and is considered a gate to the neighboring Iraq.

Duterte's government failed to recognise the developing power of this enlarged cohort.

The official noted that the US-backed SDF forces had managed to capture areas in northeastern Syria from Daesh "without any fighting", implying that the Takfiri militants were working hand in glove with the SDF to take oil-rich areas.

The projectiles destroyed control centers, communication hubs and arms dumps being used by the terrorists, the regime said. The end of a movement with no single centre and many affiliates may not, after all, be so near.

The contours of the defeat of the terrorist organizations in Syria emerges more clearly.

Russia has provided military backing for Syrian President Bashar Assad's forces since 2015. It was a major symbolic victory for the pro-government forces. The Syrian government was "not fit to lead and rule the people", he said. There is no possibility for these fighters to be resupplied, since their regional allies (Turkey and the Gulf Arabs) have largely abandoned them.
