Map: SDF announce full control over Iraqi border in eastern Euphrates
The Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) have declared the entire border – in eastern Euphrates – with Iraq safe, after securing it from ISIS militants.
SDF spokesperson said that the SDF seized “the entire desert of eastern Deir ez-Zor province” and managed to secure the Al-Hasakah provincial border earlier this week.
The spokesperson added that the SDF plans to completely drive Daesh militants out of Deir ez-Zor in the coming days.
On May 1, the SDF and the US-led coalition launched the al-Jazeera Storm operation to clear Syria’s eastern border of the Daesh terrorists, who had regrouped there after losing control over Raqqa.
