According to reports, a joint attack was launched by SDF and the Iraqi military – propelled by coalition bombers – towards the bordering village of albaghour that is under ISIS control.
During the past few days, the Iraqi airforces conducted several airstrikes against suspected ISIS targets inside the Syrian territories, as they reported to neutralize dozens of terrorists, destroying their bases in Deir Ezzor province.
In a related story, the Syrian troops are engaging into heavy battles – at the meantime – against ISIS in the southern axis of Al-Mayadeen city, as they succeeded to gain 1500 km2 swath of lands.
