Anti-ISIS troops and the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) are preparing to conduct a military operation on the eastern side of the Euphrates River with the aim to eliminate the terrorist group there, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights (SOHR) said Monday. 

International coalition jets carried out air strikes on al Sousa and Hajeen towns and al Shaafa village on the eastern Euphrates, SOHR added. 

The SDF also conducted raids in the same areas, the observatory said.

It noted that this is done in preparation for the military operation to restore the last ISIS pocket on the eastern bank of the Euphrates River.
