Syria: SDF wins back Gharanij from Isis and aims at Hajin again

SDF has reconquered Gharanji and is now fighting against Isis at Bahrah

The SDF chased out Isis again from Gharanji with a surprise attack, supported by the fighter jets of the International Coalition.  During the battle, which started in the suburb of Merbiya, about ten militants died and the rest escaped towards the south. The fight moved to the southern area of Deir ez-Zor, at Bahrah.  As a natter of fact, on the eastern bank of the Euphrates, a violent battle between Cizire Storm (Al Jazeera) and the Islamic State is going on. The battle, though, like at Gharanji, is retreating in the direction of Hajin (under strike of the international air force) and Anu Kamal (Al Bukamal). Meanwhile, Inherent Resolve made the death toll of the raid of 20 january at Sha’fah known. The air strikes were very heavy for Isis, they lost more than 150 jihadists in one blow. 

Syrian army at Idlib is trying to conquer Abu Duhur which is in the hands of Hayat Tahrir al-Sham. In the meantime Daesh is moving towards Sinjar

At the same time, Syrian army (SAA) is still fighting Hayat Tahrir al-Sham (HTS) at Idlib to take by force the city of Abu Duhur. The soldiers, after having thrown HTS out of the military airport, aimed at the residential area but found greater resistance here. With the result that it seems jihadists are getting ready to launch a massif attack in the area in a couple of days. Meanwhile Isis is taking advantage of the conflicts to move forward in the  province. The Daesh militants aim at taking over Sinjar, a strategic place in the province. According to news circulating a few hours ago it seems that the SAA have suspended the attacks in the area, as soon as the military base was secured. But according to military sources the news was denied by Damascus, confirming that the anti HTS and anti Islamic State operations will go ahead. In support of this, at Sa’ad al-Kayari (Um Aboudone of the most famous and high level terrorist commander was killed.
