Syria, The SDF Seek Revenge On Isis At Deir Ezzor After The Sandstorm

After the sandstorm at Deir Ezzor, the SDF resumed attacking Isis. And they seek revenge after the massacre at the Al-Bahra refugee camp, perpetrated by militia

The sandstorm at Deir Ezzor ended and the SDF resumed their progress against Isis. Operation Round Up (Jazeera Storm) troops are attacking Islamic State militiamen in Safafinah, Marashidah, Susah and on the outskirts of Hajin. The Syrian fighters fight with more impetus, following the massacre committed by Daesh at the Al-Bahra refugee camp, where dozens of unarmed civilians were massacred and many others kidnapped. Is reported of over 100 people, most of whom are women and children. The Arab-Kurdish forces reacted immediately to the offensive, evacuating most of the guests of the structure and rejecting the enemy. Now they want revenge and have increased their pressing. So much so that the International Coalition has dropped leaflets on the area again, inviting the jihadists to surrender and reminding them that they are trapped without a way out.

In parallel, Jazeera Storm reopens the Euphrates bridge between Shaijlah and Abu Kamal to evacuate civilians. Meanwhile, the Syrian army (SAA) and its allies reinforce the ranks, fearing Daesh attacks

Parallel to the offensive against Isis, the SDF reopened one of the crossings between the two banks of the Euphrates in Deir Ezzor. In particular, the one of Shaijlah, which leads to Abu Kamal, controlled by the Syrian army (SAA). The goal is to ensure that civilians in the southern corridor can safely be evacuated and move freely around the southwestern quadrant of the Middle Eastern country. Meanwhile, pro-government militias have reinforced their presence in the area, where the soldiers of Damascus and the Russians are deployed. After the surprise attack of the last few days of the Islamic State, it is feared that the jihadists may try to cross the river and do the same in their area. As a result, in the last hours several trucks arrived with militians, weapons and ammunition to increase the defenses.
