The Kurdish-led Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) have received a huge amount of aid from the United States to continue their anti-ISIS operations in Deir Ezzor countryside in Syria’s east.

“The US has supplied us with Hummer armored vehicles and heavy armament for the Deir Ezzor operation, including missiles, infra-red guidance missiles, machine guns, mine throwers, Kalashnikov assault rifles and other ammunition,” the SDF source told Sputnik Turkiye on condition of anonymity.

Meanwhile, the source also acknowledged that ISIS have killed many SDF fighters.

“We are advancing, our forces need to operate in the areas of combat and we do need armored vehicles. We have lost many fighters who were killed in mortar shelling by Daesh [ISIS] terrorists because they did not have armor protection,” a SDF source explained to Sputnik.
