The SDF at Deir Ezzor are preparing to attack Isis in Sha’Fah and Susah. Coalition and IAQF bomb the strongholds of the Islamic State, while Jazeera Storm advances in Husayyah and Baghuz Fawqani. More and more militiamen surrender
The SDF at Deir Ezzor are preparing to launch the mass attack against Isis at Sha’Fah. In the past few hours, the planes and artillery of the International Coalition carried out heavy bombings on the Islamic State posts in the area. These are used to prepare the ground invasion of Operation Round Up Syrian fighters (Jazeera Storm), who are now expelling the Daesh jihadists from al-Husayyah. Once the city is taken, the northern axis of the Arab-Kurdish force will aim directly at the militia’s stronghold. The southern one, however, is preparing to attack Susah. The Iraqi Air Force (IQAF), in fact, carried out several raids in the air and the troops proceeded quickly to Baghuz Fawqani. This is due to the fact that the IS lines of defense have collapsed and that many terrorists are surrendering to the SDF. They are mostly Iraqis and Syrians, but it seems that there are also foreign fighters among them.
Daesh continues to attack the Syrian army (SAA) to try to open an escape corridor from the Middle Euphrates River Valley (MERV) to the Badia desert. Last raid in Sayyal
Meanwhile, Isis continues to attack the Syrian army (SAA) and its allies west of the Euphrates. The militiamen of the Islamic State launched a surprise offensive to Sayyal, taking control of part of the city for a few hours. Then, however, they retreated fleeing in the direction of the Badia desert. It is yet another attempt by Daesh to create an escape corridor for his jihadists from the Middle Euphrates River Valley (MERV) to the desert, where it concentrated a large group of terrorists, who escaped from the battlefields in various parts of the Middle Eastern country and Iraq. These periodically carry out raids, both to refurbish and test the enemy, in order to discover possible breaches in its lines of defense. The involved area is from Mayadeen to Abu Kamal.
