Syria, SDF dismantle an important Isis network between Hasakah-Deir Ezzor

The SDF dismantle an important Isis network between Hasakah and Deir Ezzor. Two groups stopped: one dealt with transferring militiamen of the Islamic State, the other to carry out attacks

The SDF in East Syria have dismantled an ISIS cell that dealt with transferring militants to the area. Jazeera Storm carried out an operation in Dashisha, near Hasakah, arresting four Islamic State elements who composed it and seizing various weapons, equipment and documents, judged to be of “great interest” by the intelligence. In parallel, the commandos of the Arab-Kurd forces, the HAT, led a blitz in the village of Busayrah in Deir Ezzor, stopping another very active Daesh group in the quadrant. The jihadists, in fact, were responsible for numerous attacks against various objectives. Some of them died during the firefight with the SDF. Others, including a woman, have been arrested. Moreover, numerous weapons, ammunition and explosives were found in the search. A sign that it was a prominent IS group.

Meanwhile in Deir Ezzor the construction of a network of at-Daesh fortifications along the Euphrates begins. The goal is to improve the fight against militia infiltrations and at the same time protect the forces of Jazeera Storm

Meanwhile, the SDF are starting to build fortifications along the Euphrates to block Isis infiltrations. Jazeera Storm has already transferred heavy machinery to various locations in Deir Ezzor and Raqqa. The objective is to create several of them all over the eastern bank of the river, so as to constitute a real surveillance network against the Islamic State. This is because the Daesh militia continue to move from Badia al-Sham desert, where there is a large resistance pocket, towards east. Furthermore, the Syrian army (SAA), which should watch over the area, does not act to stop the flow of jihadists. As a result, all security management in the quadrant is left to the Arab-Kurdish forces. These are growing, but they are still limited. Therefore it was decided to build support structures that facilitate the task and at the same time protect the soldiers.
