Syria, Isis loses 45 members in a SDF maxi raid in Deir Ezzor

Isis has lost at least 45 members between Busayrah, Shahil and Dhiban during an ongoing operation to dismantle the logistic and support networks for the Islamic State

At least 45 ISIS militants have been arrested in the past few hours by the SDF in Deir Ezzor. It is the result of a targeted operation, still underway, that the Kurdish special forces (HAT), together with Inherent Resolve, launched against the cells of facilitators of the Islamic State between Busayrah, Shahil and Dhiban. The maneuvers involved both land and air assets. Among the captured Daesh jihadists, there are also important leaders, considered strategic for logistical and support networks for fundamentalists in eastern Syria. The area, in fact, is the one most used by IS to infiltrate the region through the Euphrates. Here the terrorists are hidden from local groups and then transported inland, or to the border with Iraq, where they are lost in delivery by other facilitators who escort them to their final destinations.

SDF and Inherent Resolve are increasing the pressure on Daesh in Deir Ezzor and in eastern Syria to reduce the operational capacity of the jihadists

The SDF and Inherent Resolve have been increasing the pressure on Isis in Deir Ezzor for some time just to dismantle the logistics and support networks for the jihadists. This is to reduce the operational capacity of Islamic State militiamen. The goal is to lessen the Daesh attacks in eastern Syria both against the population and against the Arab-Kurdish forces. Furthermore, by keeping the militiamen engaged, they are prevented from organizing to target critical infrastructure in the region, such as energy fields or fields where tens of thousands of IS foreign fighters and their families are detained. First of all, that of Al-Hol, which has repeatedly been subjected to terrorist raids. The International Coalition is also participating in this process, which is further strengthening its physical presence in the quadrant.
