SDF launch a new maxi manhunt against Isis sleeper cells at Deir Ezzor. Jazeera Storm wants to protect the population from attacks by the Islamic State during Ramadan
The SDF have launched a new maxi operation in some villages and towns in Deir Ezzor against Isis sleeping cells. Objective: to ensure that the imminent Ramadan in the Syrian province can be kept safe. The Islamic State militiamen, in fact, in previous years carried out numerous attacks, exploiting the event, above all against the civilians and on the occasion of the Eid al-Fitr, when the Ramadan ends. Jazeera Storm’s maneuvers, currently underway, involve several areas and so far they have already led to neutralizing various groups of Daesh jihadists. These, hidden among the local population, planned attacks or tried to reunite with their companions. At the same time, research continues on the storage of weapons, ammunition and explosives of militants throughout the eastern part of the Middle East to reduce the number of accidents in the quadrant and prevent fundamentalists from drawing on them.
The Syrian army (SAA) in Badia Al-Sham receives Hezbollah reinforcements. They will be used to launch an offensive against the Daesh pocket between Homs and Deir Ezzor
Meanwhile, the Syrian army (SAA) in Badia Al-Sham has had to resort to the help of its Iranian partners to try to counter Isis. According to several local sources, numerous Hezbollah militia reinforcements have arrived in Sukhnah in recent hours. Indeed, it appears that the SAA is planning a new offensive en masse to end the Islamic State’s pocket between Homs and Deir Ezzor. This, thanks to the fact that the SDF have sealed the area east of the Euphrates, is swelling and the attacks against the soldiers are multiplying. Especially at Abu Kamal and Mayadeen. As a result, Damascus must intervene before Daesh becomes too strong and begins to expand again. Troops, however, are often poorly trained and do not know the terrain. Thus, they need expert reinforcements to provide support on the ground. Otherwise, everything will be reduced to a soap bubble, as happened during the recent offensives.
