Syria, the SDF capture the Islamic State “gunsmith” in Deir Ezzor

The SDF have captured the “gunsmith” of the Islamic State in Deir Ezzor. Also seized a large amount of equipment to repair weapons. In parallel, three IS logisticians were arrested in Al Ozba and Al Sabha

The SDF in Deir Ezzor dismantled an important Islamic State gunsmith cell. Special units of the Kurdish forces, with the support of Inherent Resolve, carried out a raid on Dhiban, arresting a leading jihadist and seizing a large amount of equipment. Most likely, the group was the point of reference for local militiamen when they had problems with their weapons. In parallel, three other terrorists were captured in the Syrian province. Two in Al Ozba and one in Al Sabha. These were part of cells that provided logistical support to the IS factions in the quadrant. The targeted operations have reduced the operational capacity of the Islamic State throughout Deir Ezzor.
