In Syria there is a war going on between the SDF and SAA at Deir Ezzor. Meanwhile, the Coalition bombards the Islamic State at Abu Kamal and Shaddadi
In Syria it’s war between the SDF and the army of Damascus (SAA) at Deir Ezzor. The soldiers crossed the Euphrates, lined up in the eastern area and took over Janeen and Jiyah. A few hours later, however, the Arabic-Kurdish forces took them both back, chasing out the enemy troops. It seems this was possible, although it is not officially confirmed, also thanks to the air support provided by the International Coalition. What is certain is only that Inherent Resolve is continuing to bombard Daesh posts and units in the province. In particular in the areas of Abu Kamal (Al Bukamal) and Shaddadi, according to the last report on the bombardments. It is not clear, either, why SAA attacked the SDF. Some sources say that the objective was to regain control over key areas in front of Deir Ezzor. Others, mainly Kurdish, say that it is an attempt to stop the advance of the SDF along the Euphrates. Particularly after the offensive against Isis was resumed.
Damascus continues to operate in its effort to chase Daesh and Hayat Tahrir al-Sham from Yarmouk, the areas near Homs. There is talk of two agreements, however there are no confirmations
At the same time, the SAA continues in its effort to chase the Islamic State and Hayat Tahrir al-Sham (HTS) out of Yarmouk, Babbila, Qadam and Al Hajar Aswad. According to some Syrian media in the last hours an agreement between Damascus and the jihadists was reached. The Daesh and HTS militiamen would agree to leave the refugee camp, in exchange of a safe transfer to the north of the country. Moreover, the residents of Yalda, Babbila and Beit Sahem could be evacuated in the same area. The two agreements, which like the previous ones regarding other areas of the country were not officially confirmed, should be implemented starting from today. In the meantime, however, the battle on the field goes on. With air raids and artillery, as well as with clashes on the ground. Most of all at Qadam, where Isis is opposing the militaries. These, instead, are intensifying the attacks against HTS in the north of Homs.
