BEIRUT, LEBANON (10:00 P.M.) – The Islamic State’s (ISIS/ISIL/IS/Daesh) deadline to surrender their last positions in the eastern region of the Euphrates River Valley has come and gone.
Daesh was given until noon on Saturday to surrender their last positions, but the terrorist group refused to give up their small enclave in the Baghouz area of Deir Ezzor.
In response to the Islamic State’s obstinacy in surrendering their last positions, the U.S. Coalition and Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) have resumed their assault against the terrorist group.
According to reports from the Deir Ezzor front, the U.S. Coalition has already conducted a number of airstrikes over the Baghouz Camp, resulting in several powerful explosions that could be heard throughout the eastern region of the Euphrates.
Perhaps the most powerful explosion reported from this front occurred this evening when the U.S. Coalition struck a weapons depot belonging to the Islamic State.
Intense firefights between the Islamic State and Syrian Democratic Forces are now ongoing at the Baghouz Camp axis, with heavy artillery and airstrikes still being provided by the U.S. Coalition.
