Syria, the Deterrence of Terrorism forces attack Isis hideouts in Dhiban

New SDF-Inherent Resolve raid against Isis in Deir Ezzor. Deterrence of Terrorism forces attack Islamic State hideouts in Dhiban

New raid by the SDF and Inherent Resolve against Isis in Deir Ezzor. Kurdish forces attacked several Islamic State militia hideouts in Dhiban, capturing seven jihadists and seizing explosives and equipment. These are in addition to those arrested in recent days, whose interrogations have made it possible to discover new evidence on the organization of terrorists in the quadrant, as well as large ammunition and bomb deposits. The maneuvers are part of the second phase of the Deterrence of Terrorism operation, launched only a few days ago and which aims to dismantle the Daesh cells between Deir Ezzor and Hasaka. Thousands of soldiers from both Syrian provinces participate, supported by the Coalition both in the planning and in the execution on the ground phases, and its start was requested by the tribal chiefs, who denounced an increase in IS attacks.

Meanwhile, the Kurds are speeding up the screening of Daesh inmates in the prisons of eastern Syria. Objective: to lighten the situation on the security risk front

Meanwhile, the SDF are speeding up the interrogation and investigation of Isis jihadists and their families, held in prisons in eastern Syria. Objective: to increase release rate to lighten the structures, which welcome tens of thousands of jihadists and who are at high risk of attacks or escapes by elements of the Islamic State. Specifically at Al-Hol. In the past few hours 460 people from Baghuz have been released, and have already returned to their homes. They will be “under special surveillance” by local authorities, to prevent them from having new contacts with the Islamic State. This was necessary, as the Kurds’ requests to the international community to retake their Daesh foreign fighters mostly fell on deaf ears. At the same time, on the other hand, episodes of violence and radicalization within prisons have increased, resulting in several attempts to escape, which have been foiled with difficulty.
