BEIRUT, LEBANON (1:00 P.M.) – The Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) have scored a new advance in the eastern countryside of the Euphrates River Valley, today, after resuming their large-scale operation over the weekend.

Backed by heavy airstrikes from the U.S. and French air forces, the Syrian Democratic Forces stormed the Islamic State (ISIS/ISIL/IS/Daesh) defenses inside the small town of Bo Badran.

According to preliminary reports, the Syrian Democratic Forces managed to capture most of Bo Badran after overrunning the defenses of the Islamic State at the northern part of this small Euphrates River Valley town.

The Syrian Democratic Forces should have full control of this town in the next 24 hours, which will ultimately spell trouble for the Islamic State as the U.S.-backed troops reach their last stronghold in the Deir Ezzor province.

The stronghold referenced in the paragraph above is the town of Al-Sousah, which is believed to be location of the new command center for the Islamic State forces in the region.

Acc to other sources SDF already in outskirts of Susah. As SDF seems to supply busses for evacuation of IS families and (some?) fighters, to SDF held areas, one can expect those have surrendered and numbers of IS fighters to drop rapidly.
