Syria, the heads of Isis try to escape from Deir Ezzor because of SDF’s pressing

Heads of Isis, seen the progress of the SDF offensive at Deir Ezzor, try to escape from the area. Operation Round Up arrests one of the leaders of the Islamic State who was trying to escape from Hajin with his family and with money of the jihadists

As expected, Isis leaders at Deir Ezzor in Syria, try to escape. The SDF of the Operation Round Up (Jazeera Storm) during the past hours stopped at Hajin a leader of the Islamic State who was trying to leave the area with his family hidden by his men. On him a large quantity of money was found, presumably stolen from the deposits of Isis in the city, already out of cash as the area is completely isolated and besieged. This is only the last arrest of militiamen carried out by the Arab-Kurdish forces in the area, according to which in the last days the defections are constantly increasing. The cause is the descent of the anti-terrorist offensive in the Middle Euprhrates Valley (MERV) in the south, at the border with Iraq, and the imminent invasion of the stronghold. This will most probably take place before the end of summer.

The Syrian army launches an offensive in mass against Daesh in the west of Daraa, in the area of Tasil. Israel and Jordan accept the White Helmets evacuated from the quadrant

Meanwhile, the Syrian army (SAA) is tightening the offensive against Isis, west of Daraa, in the area of Tasil. The militiamen of the Islamic State are under attacks carried out both in the city, with continuing air raids from Damascus, and at Tal Jumu with soldiers. In the meantime, the civilian population is escaping in mass from the quadrant, and going in the direction of the areas controlled by the regime. The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights (SOHR) reports that over 20.000 persons are moving and another 10.000 are still at Yarmouk Basin, also targeted by the anti-Daesh raids. In parallel Israel and Jordan have accepted hundreds of White Helmets, evacuated from the south of Syria for security reasons. The jewish State has accepted about 500 and Jordan 442. The operations, however, are still underway.
