Syria, new defeat for Isis in Deir Ezzor: the Abu Kamal crossing with Iraq reopens

New symbolic defeat for Isis. After years reopen the Abu Kamal border crossing at Deir Ezzor between Syria and Iraq. It will improve trade and the sense of security of the population

Isis has been defeated again in Deir Ezzor, although some SDF-tracked cells still remain in the province. Confirmation comes from the Damascus soldiers (SAA) decision to reopen the Abu Kamal border crossing between Syria and Iraq. This, closed for years following the infiltration of the Islamic State militiamen between the two countries, could start operating again in the coming weeks, although with some initial limitations. According to local sources in fact the conditions that had decreed the stop have ceased. This is a double positive news, especially for the local inhabitants. This means that on the one hand trade and travel between the two nations can be resumed without having to move long distances. On the other, that Jazeera Storm’s operations to dismantle jihadist groups work.

Meanwhile, the Jazeera Storm SDF continue the hunt for Islamic State cells and facilitators. In the last hours several Daesh elements have been captured from Raqqa to Deir Ezzor, passing through Hasaka

Meanwhile, the SDF are continuing the manhunts towards ISIS cells throughout eastern Syria. From Raqqa to Deir Ezzor, passing through Hasaka. In one of the last operations, special forces of Jazeera Storm (HAT) captured an element of the Islamic State in Tel Hamess. Further arrests of Daesh militiamen took place in Ajajah and other areas of the region. From Busayrah to Shahil, to Dhiban. This is in fact the main route, exploited by jihadists to infiltrate to the East via the Euphrates. It is no coincidence that the Arab-Kurdish forces periodically launch maneuvers to stop the groups arriving from the desert of Badia al-Sham and the facilitators who manage and support the terrorists. In recent days, in fact, there have been targeted blitzes that have led to the detention of important IS finance managers.
