Coalition, insurgent forces repel ISIS assault

ISIS has lost most of its land since President Trump took office

Reuters reports us officials say the base in question at al-Tanf is temporary and that it's being used as a training ground for forces to counter ISIS.

The following excerpt from the book Zacchea co-authored with - - illustrates the cultural complexities that Zacchea encountered then, and which lie ahead for Americans serving in Iraq and Syria now, and in the future.

"This is essentially ISIS", Gerasimov said.

Meanwhile, the Syrian government forces have recently ceased their offensive in the southwest of Damascus after Nusra Front terrorist group was defeated in the area and started engaging in talks.

Fewer than 1,000 Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS) fighters remain in Iraq and Syria, the US-led worldwide coalition fighting the Sunni militant group said on Wednesday, a third of the estimated figure only three weeks ago.

The Al-Tanf base is located within the 55km "de-confliction" buffer zone.

Armed Forces Chief of Staff Valery Gerasimov told a Russian media outlet the U.S.is training militants at a military base at al-Tanf, a border crossing area between Syria and Iraq.

"The most important is that we have been seeing the militants advancing from there for several months".

"From our point of view, it seems to us that ISIS are moving through regime areas with impunity" in eastern Syria while apparently fleeing to the west in an effort to reach territory controlled by other rebel groups fighting the regime of Syrian President Hafez al-Assad, British Army Maj. "We can only defeat ISIS in areas our partners control". There were captives from these camps.

It's not the first time that Russian Federation has pointed out to Washington that militants holed up inside the buffer zone have been staging attacks on Syrian forces.

Gerasimov said that a military base in the Al-Tanf region of Syria is being used to re-train the former ISIS combatants, give them a different name like New Syrian Army and send them out to destabilize the country. The U.S. had focused its forces in Syria on destroying ISIS since the group came to prominence in 2014.
