Syria, maxi SDF operation against ISIS between Hasaka and Deir Ezzor

The SDF have launched a maxi operation against ISIS between Hasaka and Deir Ezzor, still in progress. More than 70 Islamic State jihadists and spies who worked for Turkey have been captured so far

The SDF have targeted the network of operating cells in Syria, arresting over 70 jihadists between Hasaka and Deir Ezzor in a maxi operation that has been underway for at least three days. During the maneuvers, in which Inherent Resolve also participates, a tunnel was destroyed, used by IS militiamen as a command center, and many weapons, ammunition, equipment and documentation were seized. The captured group specialized in IED attacks and targeted killings of prominent personalities or the military across the region. Moreover, several spies who worked for Turkey also ended up in the shirts of the Kurdish forces. It seems that the entire offensive was born as a result of intelligence information on the movements of the Islamic State cells.

Meanwhile, the militias in Idlib go on a counterattack against SAA and Russia. Attack several operations rooms in the region. There could be casualties among the Moscow soldiers

Meanwhile, in the northwest, local militias have begun to attack the positions of the Syrian army (SAA) and Russia. In the past few hours, the Qaedist group Ansar al-Tawhid, ally of Hayat Tahrir al-Sham (HTS), has launched some Burkan short-range missiles against a joint operations room in Damascus and Moscow south of Idlib. There is no official information, but there appear to be deaths and injuries among both the SAA and Federation troops. Other jihadist groups, on the other hand, bombed sites of government forces in Kafr Nabl and nearby. The offensive is the response to the recent attacks by Syrian soldiers in Fatira, Kansafrah, Sufohn, Fleifel and Barah (Zawija), as well as the repeated flyovers of the quadrant by Russian fighters. These have in fact provided the military on the ground with the coordinates to hit.
