The SDF at Deir Ezzor launched a surprise attack against Daesh in the area of Sousah. Jazeera Storm, with the support of Iraq, is trying to divide the Islamic State into 3 isolated groups
The SDF at Deir Ezzor launched a surprise attack against Daesh in the area of Sousah. The area is on the southern axis of the Jazeera Storm (Cizire Storm) operation, which has been taking place in the Syrian province. The offensive in the city, one of the three strategic in the area, has the objective to divide the Islamic State into 3 separate and isolated groups. The first at Hajin, the second at Sha’Fah and the third at Baghuz Fawqani. It is not a coincidence that yesterday the Iraqi air fighters bombed the quadrant to weaken the Isis defenses, anticipating maneuvers on the ground. Today, furthermore, the Arab-Kurdish forces are performing maneuvers also in this last place, which is right in front of Abu Kamal (Al Bukamal). According to local sources, around the city violent fights are going on between the SDF and the soldiers. In the meantime, the area up to the border with Iraq has been completely de-mined.
The Isis militiamen are continuing to lose ground also at Yarmouk against the Syrian army (SAA). Very soon they will have to try to reach an agreement with Damascus to save their lives
The Islamic State is loosing ground also at Yarmouk, near Damascus. The Syrian army (SAA), although slowly, is advancing within the refugee camp and Daesh is now controlling less than 70% of the camp besides some areas of Tadamoon. The offensive is proceeding on two fronts. On one side there are the soldiers on the ground, fighting Isis house to house. To the point that in the last hours they have achieved the total control of Hajar Al Aswad. On the other side there is the Air Force which is on a daily basis carrying out raids. The last raid, carried out during the day, caused the death of 9 militiamen. These still manage to oppose a certain resistance, which however cannot last very long. They are isolated and surrounded, left with a few weapons and munitions. Besides this, they are suffering a constant pressure. This, as it has already happened elsewhere in Syria, could shortly push the jihadists to seek an agreement with Damascus to save their lives in exchange of surrender and withdrawal.
