Syria, Daesh pressured by SDF at Deir Ezzor attacks SAA at Mayadeen

Daesh at Deir Ezzor, pressed by the SDF, attacks in mass the SAA at Mayadeen, in an effort to regain the “Wilayat al-Khayr”

Daesh at Deir Ezzor, pressed by the SDF which have resumed the offensive in the region, attacks the Syrian army (SAA) in mass. The militiamen of the Islamic State launched a mass offensive against the city of Mayadeen, under the strict control of the soldiers of Damascus. The objective is to regain the area once known as the “Wilayat al-Khayr” and which was administered by Isis. Moreover, they continued to attack the SAA in the area of Abu Kamal (Al Bukamal), to the point that the Air Force of the middle eastern country had to intervene to support the land troops, in obvious difficulty. Meanwhile, the Kurdish led forces are increasing the pressure on the jihadists at Hajin, Dashisha and Shaddadi. Their efforts are supported by the International Coalition, which are carrying out raids targeted on the IS stations. Between Monday and Tuesday there have been 5 such raids near Abu Kamal, which have caused the destruction of the headquarters of a factory of car bombs (SBVIED).

In the conflict against Daesh east of Deir Ezzor also Iraq participated. The air fighters of Bagdad attacked and destroyed the posts of the Islamic State in Syria along the borders between the two countries. This was announced by the office of the premier Haider al-Abadi, underlining the fact that the strikes were actually launched from the Iraqi side of the frontier and that they took place fully coordinated with the government of president Bashar al-Assad. “After having liberated their country, the ISF join the fight to liberate the north east of Syria from Isis and to secure their birders – wrote UK generale Felix Gedney, vice commander of Inherent Resolve on twitter. – The Coalition and the SDF are working together in reliable partnership to defeat Daesh. The Islamic State cannot hide anywhere.”
