The SDF are preparing a maxi anti-Isis operation in Raqqa. The goal is to dismantle the cells of the Islamic State that have raised their heads in the Tabqa area
The SDF are preparing for a maxi operation against Isis in the Raqqa area. In the past few hours, numerous means and fighters of the Arab-Kurdish forces have gathered in Tabqa to launch a series of raids, aimed at eliminating the cells of the Islamic State present in the quadrant. These, taking advantage of the covid-19 emergency, are attempting to raise their heads and have increased the number of attacks, especially with improvised devices (IED). Furthermore, the Syrian army (SAA) could participate in the maneuvers, albeit indirectly. In recent days, in fact, Damascus has sent reinforcements to Deir Ezzor. Both to improve the defenses of the bases and to undertake a campaign against IS in the desert of Badia al-Sham. As a result, the SAA will act as a hinge to prevent jihadists from attempting to flee south.
Meanwhile, in the framework of SDF-Iraq cooperation, surveillance against Daesh in Deir Ezzor is strengthened
Meanwhile, the SDF have increased anti-Isis surveillance on the border with Iraq in Deir Ezzor. This is because the ISF have just launched a new operation in Anbar, Nineveh and Salahuddin to dismantle the cells of the Islamic State in the area. As a result, efforts are being made to prevent militiamen from attempting to flee to the Syrian region. The respective forces, in fact, operate in coordination as the Joint Operation Command (JOC) spokesman, General Tashsin Khafaji, stated to Rudaw. The senior official explained that with Arab-Kurdish forces and Inherent Resolve there is a continuous exchange of information, as well as intelligence, on Daesh cells in neighboring countries and imprisoned jihadists. By the way, he did not provide any further details, but in all likelihood, when one of the two entities launches a maneuver, the counterparty is immediately notified so that it can take the appropriate action.
