Syria, the Sand Hippos unleashed against Isis in Deir Ezzor awaiting the SDF
The Sand Hippos were unleashed against Isis at Deir Ezzor. They are scattered between Hajin and Baghuz to provide the SDF and the Coalition with the coordinates of the targets of the Islamic State. The militiamen are in chaos and see spies everywhere
The Sand Hippos are unleashed against Isis at Deir Ezzor, especially after the announcement of the resume of Operation Round Up (Jazeera Storm). The Elements of the mysterious group are located in the outskirts of Hajin, Sha’Fah, Susah and Baghuz, spying on the movements of the jihadists of the Islamic State to provide the Syrian fighters and the International Coalition with the coordinates of the targets. So much so that in the last hours have been destroyed several Daesh posts with raids and SDF artillery attacks. In addition, the “ghosts” continue to hunt down militia commanders, within the cities controlled by terrorists. The IS members are terrorized and have begun to make reprisals against the local population to flush out possible spies and supporters. In Sha’Fah they executed a civilian, accused of taking photographs, and in the quadrant made several arrests for alleged treason. Also among members of the group.
Reinforcements for Jazeera Storm from the north east of Syria begin to arrive. Meanwhile, the Arab-Kurdish forces attack Daesh in Hajin and Baghuz, taking advantage of the rains and poor coordination between local and “new” jihadists
Meanwhile, reinforcements have begun to arrive to the SDF in Deir Ezzor from the north east of Syria. These are located at the oil fields of Al-Omar and Al-Tanak, ready to reach their companions on the front line. The Syrian fighters, before launching the maxi ground offensive against Isis, are waiting for all available forces to be in the area. Meanwhile, several Arab-Kurdish forces have already begun to attack the Islamic State in Hajin and Baghuz. Taking advantage of the rains that make visibility poor and slow the movements of the Daesh militia. In addition, several IS elements, arrived from the west of Deir Ezzor during the last offensive during the sandstorm, don’t know the territory and the companions. Therefore, their offensive and coordinating capacity is limited.
