SDF and Inherent Resolve capture the head of an ISIS logistics cell in Deir Ezzor. The man was hiding in a secret room under a building in Shahil. He was in charge of financing and recruiting Islamic State jihadists in the region
The SDF dismantled the top of a logistics and support network for the Islamic State in Deir Ezzor. Kurdish forces, with the support of Inherent Resolve, carried out a raid on Shahil, capturing an IS commander. This was at the head of a group that was in charge of financing and recruiting former ISIS militiamen in the Syrian province. The man, moreover, was hidden in a secret room, located under his house in the central district of al-Hisiya. In the cleanup operations of the building, weapons, ammunition, explosives and documents belonging to members of his cell were also found. These are currently sought after. The operation was made possible by the cooperation of the local population, who reported the presence of the jihadist to the SDF.
