ISIS continues to attack the Syrian army (SAA) to open new escape routes to Iraq. One of the main targets of the Islamic State is Abu Kamal, near the border with the neighboring country
Isis continues to attack the Syrian army (SAA) in Deir Ezzor. In the past few hours the Islamic State, as was to be expected, again targeted posts of the soldiers of Damascus at Abu Kamal. Furthermore, a whole unit of pro-Assad militias disappeared in the Mayadeen desert, most likely following by a Daesh jihadists attack. They are trying to quickly open new routes to the south-east of the country, via the Euphrates, in order to create an escape corridor towards Iraq. The territory controlled by the SDF, in fact, is carefully monitored and various Jazeera Storm operations are underway to neutralize the terrorist cells. Consequently, the only viable route is the one that passes in the areas controlled by the SAA as close as possible to the border. It is likely, therefore, that the offensives at Abu kamal will continue.
The campaign of Daesh attacks against the SDF and the population also continues, from Raqqa to Deir Ezzor, passing through Hasakah. The jihadists want revenge and reiterate that their regime is not over
Meanwhile, Isis carries out new attacks against the SDF and the population in eastern Syria. The last took place in Hasakah and saw two motorcycles explode, causing deaths and injuries. Others had occurred in recent days from Raqqa to Deir Ezzor. The militia’s goal is to take revenge on Jazeera Storm’s operations to dismantle the cells of the Islamic State, which is running throughout the region. The areas most involved at the moment are the Shaddadi Road, which borders the Euphrates, and the quadrant south of Hasakah, on the border with the neighboring province. The terrorists have also aimed civilians to reiterate that the reign of terror Daesh is not finished and in response to the fact that these are the first to report them to the authorities, often “burning” the covers and hiding places of the various IS groups that infiltrate and operate at local level.
