So it looks like SDF has finally taken Hajin in Syria. Last real town ISIL had in Syria. Good work by SDF, but damn that took a long long long time. Cizire Storm started in September 2017 and SDF has been right outside the town since last December.
So I’m hoping they can clear out the rest of that Euphrates pocket quickly. So just a reminder that the anti ISIL campaign has been going on and trying to take territory back from ISIL in Syria for almost two years of Trump’s presidency. I mention that because when someone complains about ISIL not being rolled back fast enough under Obama(and it was falling back on every front when he left, half of Mosul already taken and SDF five kilometers from Raqqa) just ask why it took a year just to take Hajin under Trump. Not belittling the incredibly successful anti ISIL campaign started under Obama and continued under Trump, but sometimes these things take time.
