The final assault of the SDF on Isis has started in the desert of Rawdah, in the Middle Euphrates Valley (MERV) at the border with Iraq. In the past hours the two axes of the Operation Round Up joined in the district to chase the Islamic State from the area, advancing for about 35 kilometers. Moreover, the Arab-Kurdish forces regained complete control of all the petrol fields, which had been seized by the jihadists of Daesh a few days ago, in the province of Deir Ezzor. In the quadrant a massif bottle is being prepared, as the militiamen are locked in near the border without any possibility of escape. Furthermore, they are being attacked from two fronts: Syria and Iraq. Here the artillery of the ISF is bombarding the defensive posts of the terrorists and making sure that there are no attempts of escape nor infiltrations. And also, they are periodically neutralizing groups of cells along the borders between the two countries.
Meanwhile, the Islamic State at Deir Ezzor is continuing to implode. The Daesh militiamen are fighting each other and reporting their comrades. A IS leader with all his unit were arrested for having spoken ill about al Baghdadi
Meanwhile, Isis at Deir Ezzor is collapsing. The Islamic State militiamen are not only fighting against the SDF, but also among themselves and do not hesitate in denouncing each other. The last episode, reported by local sources, took place at Sha’fa, north of Abu Kamal (Al Bukamal). A Daesh field commander, Abu Anwar al Maqdisi, and seven members of his unit were arrested by its own security sector. They were accused of having criticized the supreme leader Abu Bakr al Baghdadi. The group had asserted that the Caliph had failed and that he had adopted a wrong ideology. After this, al Maqdisi (of Jordan nationality) and his men were imprisoned and are risking the death penalty. In the past days, however, in the area of Hajin, numerous jihadists escaped, and some of them also stole part of the funds of their comrades.
