BEIRUT, LEBANON (1:30 P.M.) – The U.S. Coalition unleashed a massive attack on the last Islamic State (ISIS/ISIL/IS/Daesh) bastion in the eastern region of the Euphrates River Valley on Monday.
According to reports from the Deir Ezzor Governorate, the U.S. Coalition has conducted several airstrikes over the ISIS-held town of Baghouz, hitting a number of areas under the control of the terrorist group.
The Syrian government has accused the U.S. Coalition of killing several civilians during today’s attack, including 4 people at a refugee camp near the town of Baghouz.
This large-scale attack by the U.S. Air Force is meant to force the remaining Islamic State terrorists to surrender their positions in Baghouz, especially after they just repelled a big attack by the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF).
Despite some claims of ongoing negotiations between the SDF and ISIS, a source from the former said no talks are ongoing; he said they require all terrorist fighters to surrender themselves without any preconditions.
