The intels on al-Baghdadi could give an expolanation on the strong resistance offered by Islamic State in Deir Essor’s Bahrah and Hajin against SDF
The new info of al-Baghdadi, if confirmed, could explain whi ISIS is offering an heavy resistance in Deir Ezzor against SDF of Cizire Storm (Al Jazeera). Especially in the south east of the governatorate, near Bahrah and Hajin. When the two areas and the extreme south will be cleared from Daesh, Kurds forces will approach last Islamic State strongholds in the est region, on the border with Iraq. So IS could try to gain the necessary time to cure or stabilize the former Caliph, so that it can be transferred to another place. Perhaps along or over the border with Iraq or Turkey.
