The SDF and Inherent Resolve have launched a silent campaign to arrest ISIS leaders in Eastern Syria. In a short time, at least three single “militants” of the Islamic State were captured in targeted operations of the special forces
A silent campaign by the SDF and Inherent Resolve is underway in Eastern Syria to capture ISIS leaders. The confirmation comes from the arrest in the past few hours of a jihadist of the Islamic State, which took place in Jdeid Akkadat in the eastern area of Deir Ezzor. Military uniforms and equipment were also seized in the operation. A special raid by the Kurdish Special Forces (HAT), who worked together with the Coalition commandos, was organized to catch him. Before him, on Friday, another “militia” Daesh had been tracked down in the same way and a similar episode occurred about two weeks ago. All, as stated in the official notes, “have been transferred to other places to be interrogated”.
Raids against individual Daesh members recur between Deir Ezzor and Hasaka. Furthermore, the Kurdish forces do not provide information about who the captured terrorists are, simply saying that they are operations against the cells
Evidently, the Isis militants arrested lately are not low profile elements, but important ones. Otherwise, complex raids would never have been organized with numerous members of the HAT and Inherent Resolve special forces for just one man. Furthermore, the “unique” catches are not isolated incidents in the campaign against the Islamic State in eastern Syria. But they happen more and more frequently not only in Deir Ezzor but also in Hasaka, a sign that work is being done deliberately in this direction. This, not to mention that in none of the latest events have been provided information on who the terrorists are and what their role was inside Daesh, if not that these are offensives aimed at dismantling the IS cells.
