Syria, SDF-Inherent Resolve operation against the Islamic State in Hasaka-Deir Ezzor
SDF-Inherent Resolve operation against the Islamic State in Hasaka-Deir Ezzor. Objective: to neutralize the pro-ISIS cells before Turkey launches the ground offensive in Syrian Kurdistan. Focus on Al-Hawl, Tel Amis and Al-Hanouk
The SDF and Inherent Resolve have launched a new surprise operation against the Islamic State in Syria. Objective: to dismantle the pro-ISIS jihadist cells before Turkey launches the ground offensive in Kurdistan. The Kurdish forces and the Coalition, in fact, want to prevent possible attacks from behind by the militiamen and attempts to raise their heads in the quadrant, taking advantage of the TAF maneuvers. As a result, there have been raids in Hasaka and Deir Ezzor in recent days. In particular, a network involved in smuggling IS families from the Al-Hawl (Al-Hol) camp, as well as operational cells in Tel Amis, Al-Hanouk and Al-Zughair were targeted. The provisional assessment of the operation, still ongoing, has seen the capture of an important leader and some other members of the group, as well as the seizure of many weapons, ammunition and documentation deemed of great interest by the intelligence.
