The Iraqi fighters come in against Isis in Deir Ezzor. The F-16s attack the Islamic State in Baghuz, while the SDF of Jazeera Storm advance in Hajin
The Iraqi forces, in support of the SDF, also come in against Isis at Deir Ezzor. Baghdad F-16 fighters bombed Islamic State posts in Baghuz area. The result was the destruction of some Daesh weapons and ammunition depots. Several militia also died in the strikes. At the same time, Operation Round Up (Jazeera Storm) troops continue to advance in Hajin, albeit slowly. In addition, they are carrying out a series of raids in the cities of the Syrian province, chasing dormant cells of the jihadists. These carry out indiscriminate attacks against SDF patrols and civilians in the liberated areas, in order to sow death and terror. The latter are in progress in the city of Al-Shahil, Raqqa and Shaddaday.
The Syrian army (SAA), taking Sweida, must decide on which of the last 2 pockets of Daesh in the country to point: the Badia desert or the MERV
Meanwhile, the Syrian army (SAA) is eliminating the last pockets of Isis in Sweida (Suweida), after having conquered the area. As a next step in the offensive against the Islamic State, soldiers can choose between two objectives. The Badia desert, between Homs and Deir Ezzor, and in the Middle Euphrates River Valley (MERV). In fact, these are the last two high density quadrants of militia Daesh. In the first case the area to be covered is very large and there is a risk that the jihadists will retreat to the east, launching new offensives en masse towards Mayadeen and Abu Kamal. In the second, the area is easier to manage, but there is a high probability that the terrorists will attack troops in the back, just from the desert.
