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.
