The Isis militiamen in Deir Ezzor try to escape from the SDF in two directions: through the Euphrates, aiming at the Badia desert and to the south, hoping to reach the border with Iraq. However, ISF are ready
Isis in Deir Ezzor is trying to escape in two directions, following the siege of the SDF in Marashidah. The first is the Euphrates. Several militiamen of the Islamic State have crossed the river, with the aim of reaching their companions in the Badia desert. The Syrian army’s defenses (SAA), despite having been increased, still present several “holes” that IS defectors want to exploit. The second one, instead, is south. This is confirmed by the surprise offensive that the jihadists have launched against Operation Round Up (Jazeera Storm) troops in the Baghuz Fawqani area. It is the desperate attempt of the fundamentalists to reach the border with Iraq, near Qaim. However, it is a vain action. On the other side of the borders, in fact, the ISF of Baghdad are ready. Both with the terrestrial assets and with the airplanes to annihilate all the terrorists who are too close to the buffer zone in Syria.
The surprise offensive of the Islamic State in Baghuz Fawqani has displaced Daesh militias in Marashidah. It has further weakened the defenses of their last stronghold in the MERV
The Isis offensive in Baghuz Fawqani has displaced primarily the same jihadists left to fight in Marashidah, their last stronghold in the Middle Euphrates River Valley (MERV). These saw their companions suddenly abandon the defense lines of the city. Moreover, bringing with them resources and supplies. This weakened them further, to the benefit of the SDF moving towards the center. According to Jazeera Storm, in fact, the Syrian province could be definitively liberated from the Islamic State within the week. Then, they will clean up the mines scattered by the Daesh jihadists and eliminate their sleeper cells. Meanwhile, however, the militia will no longer have a safe place to hide. And they will be hunted down, especially by the people seeking revenge.
