Syria, Damascus starts maxi operation in Hama and Idlib against HTS-Isis

A maxi operation of the Syrian army (SAA) against Hayat Tahrir al-Sham (HTS), Isis and the rebel groups between Hama and Idlib is underway. Objective: crush the militia on the border with Turkey

In Syria, a massive attack by the army of Damascus (SAA) began, supported by the Russian air force, against Hayat Tahrir al-Sham (HTS) and the other rebel groups between Hama and Idlib. At the moment a violent air raid campaign is underway, involving both provinces. The forces on the ground, on the other hand, begin to attack the dial at the edges. This with three objectives: crush HTS and anti-government formations towards the borders with Turkey; prevent the guerrillas from escaping to other areas of the Middle Eastern country and eliminate the last Isis cells present. Although the Islamic State has almost disappeared to the north, there are still small Daesh jihadist units. These, especially facilitators, are responsible for managing business and trade routes with Turkey. Furthermore, they have established links with HTS in anticipation of a strong alliance. Consequently, they represent a danger that must be eliminated before it is too late.

In Deir Ezzor, SDF continue manhunts against Islamic State sleeper cells. Objective: to prevent Daesh attacks during Ramadan and ongoing demonstrations

Meanwhile, in Deir Ezzor Jazeera Storm continues the manhunts against Isis sleeping cells. With the arrival of Ramadan, small groups of the Islamic State represent a danger especially for the population. These, in fact, will try to target the civilians to circulate the message that Daesh is not dead yet in the Syrian province. There have already been warnings in this regard with some attacks in the area. Furthermore, the jihadists could target some protests that have been going on in the region for about three weeks. The reasons are mainly related to the conscription of young people in the SDF and the sale of oil to Damascus, which many Arab residents do not like. The demonstrations, however, are peaceful and the parties involved are discussing solutions. A terrorist attack, however, could ignite spirits and cause accidents.
