A notable number of US Special Operations Forces units had been already involved in the operation, acting as forward air controllers and snipers and overseeing SDF units.

    A fine example of incorrect reporting.

    Abdul Malik now over 70% taken, last night Yarmouk taken and Rawdah either completely or almost taken.

    Large reinforcements arrived yesterday, nw materiel, the problems with Elite forces seem to be resolved. More then a 1000 civilians rescued. Relief for refugees arriving in larger quantities.

    SDF is doing fine, even if they do not take a quarter a day. The fight for Mosil took over 7 months and still not competely finished.

    Bad reporting here.

    The US is doing 80% of the work.
    Kurd’s is just the poster boy.
    Kurd’s failed to conquer Iran.
    Failed to conquer Iraq.
    Failed to conquer Turkey.
    And will fail to conquer Syria.
