ISIS in Syria nearly cutoff from Iraqi border (map)
ISIS is nearly on the verge of collapse in the Deir Ezzor Governorate, as their forces have lost a large chunk of ground in the Euphrates River Valley.
The US-backed Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) scored a big advance in eastern Deir Ezzor on Friday, seizing several points from ISIS near the Euphrates River.
As a result of this advance, the US-backed forces have reached the eastern bank of the Euphrates River near the strategic town of Baghous.
The town of Baghous is ISIS last link between Syria and Iraq.
