Syria, the SDF are hunting for Isis facilitators in the East

SDF operations are intensifying against Isis between Raqqa, Deir Ezzor and Hasakah. Jazeera Storm aims the facilitators to cut the Islamic State operational capacity

SDF operations are entering the East of Syria to dismantle the Isis cells hidden in the area. In recent hours there has been a blitz by Jazeera Storm near Manbij, which led to the arrest of an Islamic State commander and his brother. The two dealt with infiltrating militias between Raqqa, Deir Ezzor and Hasakah, as well as providing weapons to the Daesh groups in the quadrant. Another facilitator, who managed the flows and the smuggling of fuel for the jihadists, was captured in Raqqa. Arab-Kurdish forces have been able to trace them thanks to a series of intel and others information, provided by terrorists watched in Busayrah in recent days, after an intense battle lasting a few hours. In the clashes, however, one of the most important IS commanders in the area died.

Anti-Daesh maneuvers also aim to stop attacks on Arab-Kurdish forces and the population. Especially after the failed blitz by the militants in Al-Omar and the campaign of bomb attacks throughout the Syrian region

The hunt for ISIS cells in eastern Syria intensified after the failed attack by an Islamic State cell on the Al-Omar oil fields. The group has tried to infiltrate the structure where units of the International Coalition are also hosted and there is a landing strip. The attempt, however, was foiled by the SDF who maintained the lines of defense and responded to the blitz, killing numerous Daesh militiamen. The action, in fact, is considered one of the most violent that ever involved the infrastructure, although this has been repeatedly the object of attacks by terrorists. These, however, continue the bomb attacks both against the forces of Jazeera Storm and the population, especially in Deir Ezzor. The last occurred a few hours ago in the Hawaij market and caused deaths and injuries to civilians.
