Isis fighter from USA surrenders before Syrian Democratic Forces

Isis fighter from USA surrenders before Syrian Democratic Forces

Russia's Foreign Ministry said on early Sunday morning that U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson had phoned Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov on Saturday to discuss the Syria situation and how the "anti-terrorism" battle on the ground was playing out.

The extent of the injuries was not clear.

In Syria, the militants have lost much of their headquarters in Raqqa to the SDF with the help of air strikes and special forces from the US-led coalition.

The Pentagon's referral to the Justice Department indicated that the new American detainee would also be turned over to federal courts.

There was no immediate comment from the Syrian government or from Moscow.

SDF fighters have been advancing against IS fighters on the east bank of the Euphrates while Syrian government forces and their allies are pushing on the western side against the extremists.

Government forces, supported by the Russian air force and Iran-backed militias, have simultaneously advanced into Deir al-Zor from the west.

Former Clemson standout Deshaun Watson expected to start for Texans
Houston and Cincinnati are looking for their first win of the season after starting the Regular Season 0-1 last week. In the case of the Houston Texans this week, opportunity will fall to former Oregon Tight End Evan Baylis.

Al-Sinaaiya is an industrial area northeast of the city of Deir Ezzor, about seven kilometres (four miles) from the east bank of the Euphrates.

The assaults by the Russian-backed Syrian army and the US-backed SDF have at times raised fears of clashes that could stoke tensions between the competing world powers.

But while Dillon acknowledged that the US-backed fighters would not go into the city, he said there were plenty of other ISIS targets farther down the river.

The spokesperson added that worldwide laws and laws of armed conflict would be closely monitored as a 'precondition for Coalition support'. "We do not allow the regime or its militias to cross to the eastern riverbank".

"Coalition officials are available and the deconfliction line with Russian Federation is open 24 hours per day", Funk said. "We put our full efforts into preventing unnecessary escalation among forces that share ISIS as our common enemy", said Funk using an acronym to refer to IS.

Multinational troops advising and assisting the SDF were present during the strike, but none were injured.

"SDF are winning great victories against ISIS", the rebel group said.
