The US and Russia have just come together to support a joint pincer movement to pin the Islamic State down in its last strongholds of Abu Kamal and Mayadin in the Euphrates Valley, debkafile reports. The new US-Russian understanding provides a roadmap for twin offensives – one with Russian air cover led by Syrian regime, Hizballah and pro-Iranian militia forces; the second with US air support by the pro-US Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF),  the Kurdish YPG and the Syrian Arab Shammari Sanadid Brigade.
