BEIRUT, LEBANON (1:20 P.M.) – The Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) continued their large-scale operation in the eastern region of the Euphrates River Valley, today, targeting the last areas controlled by the Islamic State (ISIS/ISIL/IS/Daesh).

Backed by heavy airstrikes and artillery, the Syrian Democratic Forces were able to crack the Islamic State’s lines at the town of Baghouz Fouqani and force tens of terrorists to surrender.

The Syrian Democratic Forces then asserted full control over Baghouz Fouqani as the remaining Islamic State terrorists slipped back to the nearby town of Safafneh.

The remaining Islamic State terrorists are now expected to make their last stand against the Syrian Democratic Forces at Safafneh.

With their recent string of losses, it appears ISIS is in desperation mode as some reports indicated on Wednesday that the terrorist group executed several of their foreign members for trying to surrender to the Syrian Democratic Forces.

According to the reports, the Islamic State executed more than 15 members that were planning to surrender themselves to the Syrian Democratic Forces, including 7 French fighters.

While they do not surrender as a group, groups of dozens IS cooks, teachers, chauffeurs, daylaborors, etc surrender dressed in dresses and the like . Weird that IS does not seem to have fighters. Even the females, their wives, are all misled, misguided and fooled.

Are these the proud killers, executioners and apologists ?

Daesh founder Zarqawi hid in Iran before being smuggled into Iraq byIRGC/Quds-Force. After Saddam was ousted by Yanks, he allied with Ba’athist resistance. In 2013-2014, 90% of ISIS military commanders were former Saddam’s high ranking officers and these were allied with general al-Douri’s private army who clearly drew the ISIS’ blitzkrieg plans, until the fall of Mosul : al-Douri was infuriated on ISIS oppression on Christians (Christian Iraqi hugely used to be on Saddam’s side for decades, as they’re on Bashar’s side in Syria : hey, a secular regime will usually protect Christians from shitlamists’ wrath). In fact, until he… Read more »

Well, in a region thriving on conspiracy theories, this tale makes some points. Maybe one day the truth will come up.

@Karel, all evidence we have is that Zarqawi was allowed to pass freely through a number of police states without ending in jail.

Not only Iran, all turned a blind eye to roaming Jihadi terrorists as long as they fought the US or other enemies of theirs.

A relict of Islam’s old ghazi traditions.

This attitude spread Jihadism in the ME.

@Daeshbags-Sux, Zarqawi’s possible collaboration with Iran lays well before the Syrian and even Iraqi war. All evidence we have is that Zarqawi was allowed to pass freely through Iran, a police state, without ending in jail. Besides being in Iran, he was in Iraq and Syria after he left Jordan using an amnesty for imprisoned Jighadi. He was also in the Qaeda/Taliban controlled areas in Afghanistan and Pakistan where his enterprise was funded by Bin Laden. Zarqawi had founded Tawhid wal-Jihad in the late 1990s in his native Jordan and pledged allegiance to Bin Laden/Qaeda in 2004. In 2003/4 he… Read more »
