Syria-Iraq, double anti-ISIS offensive underway in Deir Ezzor and Anbar

Syria-Iraq, ongoing anti-ISIS double offensive in Deir Ezzor and Anbar. On the one hand there are the SDF that block the borders, on the other the ISF that are carrying out massive maneuvers against the Islamic State

A massive SDF and ISF anti-Isis operation is underway in Syria and Iraq. The objective is to eliminate the militia groups of the Islamic State that move between the provinces of Deir Ezzor and Anbar. The forces of Jazeera Storm have sealed the borders and watch to intercept any attempt to escape from the neighboring country. Baghdad troops, on the other hand, are leading a violent offensive in the area, which has so far led to the death of over 50 Daesh jihadists. The last 11 lost their lives just a few hours ago during a combined assault on 13 locations. In addition, a militia training camp was destroyed and numerous weapons and explosives were seized. Moreover, in a blitz in Mosul, the ISF captured Jihad al-Ansary. The man was the IS emir of the mortar brigade in the Plain of Nineveh.

Meanwhile, Jazeera Storm continues the manhunt against the Daesh militia along the Euphrates. These infiltrate through the river and threaten security in Deir Ezzor with IED attacks and suicide bombers

Meanwhile, in Syria, SDF continue to hunt down Isis cells at Deir Ezzor along the Euphrates. After Shahil and Tayyani, Jazeera Storm forces are carrying out operations against the Islamic State in Darnaj and Shannan. The goal is to block the flow of jihadists in the eastern area. These depart from the desert of Badia al-Sham and cross the territory controlled by the Syrian Army (SAA), to then cross the river undisturbed and launch attacks against Arab-Kurd troops and the population. The Daesh strategy is based on the use of improvised devices (IEDs) and suicide bombers (shahid). This is because the tight controls of the SDF towards the Euphrates do not allow the transit of large groups of fundamentalists. Furthermore, the manhunts further reduce the operational capacity of the IS groups. As a result, there are not enough men available to suggest a direct attack.
