New ISIS attacks on the Syrian army (SAA) in Deir Ezzor. The Islamic State raises soldiers’ ambushes to open new routes to the east
Isis again attacks the Syrian army (SAA) in Deir Ezzor, although this has recently received reinforcements in the area. A group of Islamic State militants ambushed the soldiers of Damascus in the Mayadeen desert, killing a dozen of them and allied militias. The goal is to create safe corridors to the east of the province and new access points on the Euphrates. This after Jazeera Storm’s SDF dismantled all the previous routes and increased vigilance along the Shaddadi Road, the road that runs along the river. It is no coincidence, in fact, that the surprise blitz of jihadists against the military have increased almost exponentially in recent days. According to local sources there are about two thousand Daesh elements hidden in Badia al-Sham, whose only escape is in the east, hoping to reach the great Iraqi pocket between Anbar and Nineveh.
The Jazeera Storm SDF have closed the main access routes from the Euphrates: Busayrah, Shahil, Jiyah and Junaydah. Daesh, so must quickly find new ones to get to Iraq
This acceleration was necessary for Isis, after the SDF interrupted the largest access routes to the east of Deir Ezzor: the one to Busayrah, the other to Shahil and the third to Jiyah and Junaydah. Here in the past few days there have been massive Jazeera Storm operations against Islamic State cells, which have led to dozens of militia arrests. Daesh must therefore quickly find new access points and it’s looking further north in the Syrian province. Particularly in the area that goes from Ma’adan to Kasrah, passing through Al-Tabni. In support of this thesis there is the geographical location of the SAA attacks. Most of these occurred north of Mayadeen.
