Syria, the new SDF area of operations against Isis is from the M4 to Abu Kamal. Above, up to the border with Turkey, security will be entrusted to Russian soldiers
The new SDF and Inherent Resolve area of operations against Isis in eastern Syria goes from Abu Kamal, on the border with Iraq, to the M4 road (called the “international road”). It was announced by the spokesman of the Kurdish forces, Kino Gabriel, confirming that in the past few hours there has been a re-deployment of fighters in every area of the region: Hasakah, Qamishli, Derik and Deir Ezzor. This follows the agreement with Russia, according to which Moscow will send soldiers to the border towns of Ain Issa, Tal Tamr and Amuda. The operations will then continue to dismantle the sleeper cells of the Islamic State, guarantee internal and vital structures (oil installations and prisons) security, and protect civilians from Daesh attacks. Above, up to the border with Turkey, security will be entrusted to Russian soldiers.
Kurdish forces and Inherent Resolve increase operations against Daesh in Deir Ezzor and in the East to protect the local population. Especially after many families are leaving the camps and returning to their homes
The SDF and the International Coalition are increasing offensives against Isis in Deir Ezzor and in the neighboring provinces for a specific purpose: to protect the inhabitants of the area. This is because many families who have lived in the camps so far are returning to their homes in the Syrian region. From Al-Hol, for example, there have been relocated in the past hours 62 for a total of 398 people. They are simple civilians, who had nothing to do with the Islamic State. As a result, they do not represent a danger. Indeed, they are themselves at risk of Daesh attacks. The jihadists, after the appointment of Qurayshi as the new Caliph, have in fact increased the raids and the bomb attacks. Especially against civilians, who pose fewer risks than SDF but who are equally “paying” on the propaganda side. Furthermore, there is a greater use of improvised explosive devices (IEDs), to save resources (militants) and try to hit enemies anyway.
