Syrian Kurds Seize ISIS Territory In Push Supported By US & Russia

 The Kurdish YPG forces have announced substantial gains in eastern Syrias Deir Ezzor Province, taking new territory along the Iraqi border and east of the Euhprates River away from ISIS. The territory captured was some of whats very little remaining ISIS territory in Deir Ezzor, and territory of limited value.
Thats a change, as while previously the Russians have supported the YPG in limited engagements, during the Deir Ezzor offensive the US has been supporting YPG exclusively, while the Russians supported the Syrian government, sort of a rush to seize as much ISIS territory as possible.In addition to the support of the US and Russia, the Kurds claimed the push was backed by Arab militias in the area.
