The offensive of the SDF continues at Deir Ezzor to surround and close Isis inside Dashisha. The two axes of the maneuvers are approximately at 5 kilometers from the Daesh stronghold
The SDF offensive continues at Deir Ezzor to surround and close Isis inside Dashisha. The forces of the Operation Round Up (Jazeera Storm) have defeated Daesh near the village of Khabura and are advancing rapidly along the other axis towards the city. There are only about 5 kilometers before the two wings of fighters join in the residential area and launch the final assault to liberate the jihadist stronghold. The Arab-Kurdish troops, moreover, also launched a surprise attack against the Islamic State at Hajin, which is still going on. In parallel, the air forces of Iraq and of the International Coalition carried out several raids on the quadrant. Both in the area of Dashisha and in the south of the Syrian province near Souza. The operations were supported by the artillery of the SDF and of Inherent Resolve.
Meanwhile, the Islamic State is continuing to attack the Syrian army to attempt an escape towards west, but the SAA is maintaining the defensive lines at Mayadeen and Abu Kamal
In the meantime, Daesh is continuing to attack the Syrian army (SAA) south of Mayadeen. This, despite the fact that the soldiers had launched an operation to clear the pocket of resistance of the Islamic State in the Badiya deserta (Badia), between Deir Ezzor and Homs. Moreover, the Isis militiamen tried again to enter Abu Kamal (Al Bukamal) crossing the Euphrates, but were rejected with losses. In fact from the river emerged several bodies of jihadists who had died during the battle. It is the third attempt in 10 days. This is a sign that there is an acceleration of the maneuvers of the fundamentalists to escape from the eastern area of the province and seek refuge in the west, in order to reach the border with Iraq and Jordan later.
