The man, Ali, was captured in Nangande. He comes from Tanzania and was responsible for the planning, recruitment and radicalization of pro-ISIS jihadists.
The SDF in Hajin have launched an attack against Isis at the market and 20th street. The Islamic State can’t support the pressing of Jazeera Storm and turns south
The SDF in Hajin continue to advance against Isis, pushing more and more towards the center. Operation Round Up (Jazeera Storm) troops attacked the Islamic State at the market and the 20th road in the stronghold at Deir Ezzor. Moreover, in the past few hours the Syrian fighters have driven Daesh from the hospital, a strategic place within the city. The militiamen, however, blew it up before fleeing and then tried to respond at a distance, throwing mortar shells at the Arab-Kurdish forces, in order to slow them down, but the attempts were not served. So much so that the jihadists were forced to fall further south. Meanwhile, the International Coalition raids on terrorist posts and civilian evacuations by the SDF continue. These have escorted over 2,000 people, especially women and children, to safe areas in the Middle Euphrates Valley (MERV) in recent days.
The Arab-Kurdish forces press Daesh also in Baghuz. The goal is to close and isolate the militia in a limited area, so as to be able to hit them more easily
Meanwhile, the SDF offensive against Isis in Baghuz continues. The Arab-Kurdish forces operating in the south of Deir Ezzor on the border between Iraq and Syria have expanded the security bubble along the frontier between the two countries and are pressing the Islamic State. This is also thanks to the support of the Baghdad forces, which bombs the jihadists at a distance with the artillery and attack them with the fighters. Following this, the Islamic State was forced to fall back towards Susan and there is an increase in mass flight from the area. The goal is to close the militia, isolating them and progressively reducing their area of maneuver. In this way Daesh will be more and more crushed, and it will be easier to hit the terrorists from multiple axes.
