Syria, the SDF create Military Councils to protect cities from Isis

The SDF have reorganized into Military Councils, to defend the Kurdish cities from Isis. So far at least 11 have been born from Raqqa to Deir Ezzor. They are a kind of army corps and unite all the fighting forces under one command

The SDF have reorganized to defend the territory from Isis, moving from a military posture to an anti-terrorism one. In the last few days some Military Councils have been established throughout the area. They are a kind of army corps, made up of brigades, regiments and battalions, each with its own area of ​​responsibility. They will protect the cities from the threat of the Islamic State. Especially after the Daesh militiamen turned from an army into a guerrilla, following the defeat against Jazeera Storm. So far at least 11 have been established: Kobani, Raqqa, Tabqa, Tell Abyad, Manbij, Jarablus, Al-Bab, al-Tawrah, al-Hawi, Deir Ezzor and Qamishlo. The principle is simple: unify all the fighting forces under one command to make better decisions in a shorter time. This, also coordinating with local leaders and key figures.

The confirmation that the setting of Jazeera Storm has changed has come from the hunt for Islamic State cells throughout the Kurdish territory in Syria. SDF transformed from “military” to “anti-terrorism” force

The confirmation that the transformation of the SDF is already happening comes from the maxi Jazeera Storm operation in progress against Isis in Deir Ezzor and Raqqa. The maneuvers are in full swing and are aimed at neutralizing the Islamic State cells in the Syrian region. It is a coordinated and simultaneous activity, which takes place in different areas. This is made possible by careful planning and coordination of the forces in the field. So far, however, only a few targets were attached at a time, conveying all the available assets. The outcome of the campaign will be the baptism of fire of the new posture of the Arab-Kurd forces. At the moment the most intense fights are recorded in the Shahil area, where a new SDF offensive is underway against a large group of Daesh jihadists. These had infiltrated the area through the Euphrates.
