Syria, SDF and Inherent Resolve dismantle an Isis network in Deir Ezzor

Maxi joint operation of SDF and Inherent Resolve against Isis in Deir Ezzor: dismantled a network of cells of the Islamic State. There are no details, but the party improvised by Kurdish fighters suggests that the jihadists have suffered a severe blow

Maxi joint operation of the SDF and Inherent Resolve in eastern Syria against an ISIS network. The Kurdish forces and the military of the US-led Coalition carried out a series of targeted raids at Deir Ezzor against a network of cells of the Islamic State, dismantling them. In this regard, no further details have been provided, but it seems that it was an extremely important maneuver, following which Daesh suffered a hard blow. It is not by chance that joy broke out among the SDF when the operation was completed. The Kurdish special forces (HAT), in fact, staged a sort of group dance and at the passing of the vehicles, they smiled and showed the V of victory with their fingers. More information may emerge in the next few hours, which will allow to better understand the extent of what has happened. Certainly there is, meanwhile, that Kurdish fighters and Inherent Resolve have recently ramped up the pressure on IS.

Daesh, meanwhile, tries to defend itself by placing mines and IEDs in strategic areas, in order to slow down the enemy and save time

Meanwhile, the SDF in Deir Ezzor are clearing Busayrah, Shahil and Dhiban from the Isis mines. The militants of the Islamic State have placed them to slow down the movements of the enemy in the area, one of the most involved in the operations, following the fact that it is the epicenter from which the jihadists infiltrate eastern Syria through the Euphrates. Furthermore, the Daesh logistic and support networks, which take care of getting the terrorists from the west and “sorting” them in the region (through the Shaddadi Road) or transporting them to Iraq, operate here. Not surprisingly, Kurdish forces periodically raid it, which undermines IS’s operational capability. As a result, fundamentalists have recently adopted a sort of “defense plan” to limit the risks that the enemy will dismantle networks, which provides for the use of mines and IEDs in order to make them save time.

SDF capture 8 ISIS fighters during large-scale clearance

The SDF captured eight known ISIS fighters and affiliates, along with weapons and ammunition, during a large-scale clearance operation in Deir ez-Zor province, Syria, Jan. 31. The operation aimed to isolate an ISIS sleeper cell, capture its members and degrade attacks across the region.“Our partners continue to conduct intelligence-driven operations, removing ISIS fighters from the region and denying them safe haven,” said U.S. Air Force Maj. Gen. Eric T. Hill, Special Operations Joint Task Force – Operation Inherent Resolve commander. “Our enduring partnership is keeping pressure on ISIS networks in order to maintain peace and stability for over 3 million people living in northeast Syria.” Coalition Forces accompanied hundreds of SDF commandos who raided several compounds. The Coalition to defeat ISIS and the SDF have been conducting an increasing number of bi-lateral operations in northeast Syria, with three to four operations occurring each week.“The defeat ISIS mission in Syria has proceeded uninterrupted in recent weeks,” said Hill. Coalition Forces and the SDF continue to cooperate in their mutual efforts to eliminate extremist networks from northeast Syria.
