NSO reporter in Deir Ezzor countryside said “Syrian Democratic Forces SDF” didn’t fully capture all Deir Ezzor eastern countryside yet until Tuesday 15/12/2017 saying ISIS still control at least 5 villages in the area.

SDF announced 2 days ago it fully captured Deir Ezzor countryside north Euphrates River with support from Russian forces and US-led coalition while our reporter said ISIS still control al-Sha’afa, Hajin, Darnaj and Ghraniej on the eastern bank of Euphrates River in Deir Ezzor eastern countryside.

Fierce clashes erupted 2 days ago between ISIS and SDF in Darnaj village where ISIS retook some positions inside the town but SDF fighters captured the town completely at the morning in Deir Ezzor eastern countryside north Euphrates River.

US-led coalition warplanes targeted al-Kashkashyie town under ISIS control in addition to Ghraneij and Abu Hamam villages where ISIS committed Sheitat massacre 3 years ago.

Worth to mention that despite ISIS huge loss of areas was under its control in Deir Ezzor province for Assad regime with its allied militias and SDF, but still control areas south Euphrates river such as al-Ashara city, al-Salhyie, Sbeikhan, al-Sayal villages in the eastern countryside.
