BEIRUT, LEBANON (4:20 P.M.) – Earlier today, Iraq’s Popular Mobilization Units (var. Hashd Al-Sha’abi) began targeting the Islamic State’s (ISIS/ISIL/IS/Daesh) positions inside Syria.
According to a military source in eastern Syria, the Popular Mobilization Units hammered the Islamic State’s positions at the contested towns of Baghouz Fouqani and Baghouz Tahtani, scoring several direct hits on the terrorist defenses.
The Iraqi forces used a plethora of artillery shells and missiles to weaken the Islamic State’s resolve, as the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) push further south along the Euphrates River.
These strikes by the Iraqi forces have helped keep up the pressure on the Islamic State terrorists that are still entrenched inside the Euphrates River Valley.
