Syria, the SDF target the Islamic State network in Al-Hol


The SDF and Inherent Resolve have targeted the Islamic State network of facilitators, which provides support to militiamen fleeing Al-Hol

New blow by the SDF against the cells of the Islamic State, responsible for escaping IS detainees from Al-Hol prison in Hasaka and for terrorist attacks in eastern Syria. Kurdish forces, in cooperation with Inherent Resolve, dismantled a terrorist cell in Tel Hamees, near the border with Iraq, capturing three jihadists. They were in charge of getting their comrades escaped from the camp to cross the border. For some time, the SDF and the Coalition have launched a targeted campaign against the group’s facilitators. Not surprisingly, only a few days ago, others, who had the same duties, were arrested. Furthermore, an operation has just ended in the Deir Ezzor desert, on the border with Iraq, to ​​neutralize the operational cells that move between the two countries.

The Syrian army (SAA) west of Deir Ezzor is still unable to eliminate the IS pocket after more than a month of operations in the Badia desert. Rather. As soon as the Russian air strikes end, the jihadists return to the attack

To the west of Deir Ezzor, however, the Syrian army (SAA) is still unable to neutralize the large Islamic State pocket in the Badia desert. This even though an operation is underway which has been going on for over a month and which also sees the participation of Russia and allied pro-Iran militias. In the past few hours, in fact, there has been yet another ambush against an SAA convoy near Al-Sukhnah (Homs), which seems to have cost the lives of four soldiers. The attack, however, took place as soon as the Moscow air raids against IS posts in the quadrant ended. A sign that the jihadists employ a very specific strategy and that the bombings against them have only a limited effect.
