Who will win the battle in Deir Ezzor? Daesh or the Coalition ?

Over the past weeks, Daesh has rocked the local populations in Deir Ezzor and the global countries, who are resolved to end this terrorist organization.

The questions that have arisen and still revolve around is how Daesh are leading their battles on the outskirts of  Deir Ezzor on the eastern bank of the Euphrates River and how they have been able too prolong the life of the battle until today, and foil the attempts of  the US-led Coalition and its partner the Syrian Democratic Forces to expel the organization from its last held pocket.

Only a few hundred fighters, most of them Syrians, the other Asian nationalities, and a small number of Europeans, are operating in a narrow area of ​​only a few kilometers on the Syrian-Iraqi border fromAl-Bukamal, east of the Euphrates River.


In their recent battles on the outskirts of Hajin city, these fighters try to tell the world that they are not as few as many think, and that they are capable of turning the military equation in the province and perhaps re-take control of cities and towns that have been taken away from them for almost a year now.

This method is not new to the organization and has been practiced in Iraq for several years through the campaigns of individual assassinations and the liquidation of people opposed to the organization . The same experience is being replicated in Deir Ezzor now.  In addition, Daesh supporters are flooding social media with propaganda messages to convince other people that the organization is still standing on the ground.

But this is not the truth. The truth is that the organization has apparently collapsed and its wings have been broken and the word “remaining and expanding” has become a fantasy, and its attempts to destabilize the region through isolated operations here and there have become exposed to everyone. Today everybody knows the fact that the Coalition will eventually succeed in obliterating the presence of the organization in Deir Ezzor.

In Deir Ezzor, there are many Arab fighters who are fighting for the ranks of the SDF . They have not yet been given the freedom of decision, which enables them to fight the organization with their previous experience when they fought against it in 2014.

Daesh have been attempting to minimize and concealing  its losses by broadcasting news propaganda about civilian massacres, but the people of the region who follow and follow the details of these massacres find that some of them did not happen, but the electronic army of the organization are seeking to stop the battle against it . The remaining enclaves in Deir Ezzor. However, this does not negate the fact that the international coalition has caused civilian casualties when striking Daesh targets in the region . 

Yes, even today, the people of Deir Ezzor have not finished that long breathing that they want to breathe. Because  the extremist organization till in that area, he is trying to establish their lives and destabilize them. But in the end, that organization will disappear from the areas of Deir Ezzor, which he has controlled for years. A sigh of relief from the last spot in the province .. sooner or later ..
