The SDF at Deir Ezzor resume attacking Isis everywhere. From Hajin to Susah, passing through Safafinah and Marashidah. The offensive of the Islamic State during the sandstorm could not have a stable effect. The first to know it were the jihadists
The fightings between the SDF and Isis south of Deir Ezzor are resuming at full speed. Operation Round Up (Jazeera Storm) is advancing on the ground again, re-occupying the areas invaded by the Islamic State in Hajin, Susah, Safafinah and Marashidah. This is the sign that the Daesh offensive during the sandstorm could not have stable results. The militia, in fact, have carried out a hit and run operation trying to do as much damage as possible and get the most out of the benefits. However, they knew they could not resist the Syrian fighters. So much so that after the attack they withdrew to the territories still controlled. Also because they knew thatfighters and artillery of Inherent Resolve would have intervened immediately. As a result, there would have been no chance of survival if found in open terrain.
In Suweida, the Syrian army (SAA) may have reached a truce with Daesh in the Al-Safa area, thanks to a Russian mediation
Meanwhile, in Suweida it seems that the Syrian army (SAA) has reached a kind of truce with Isis, thanks to the mediation of Russia. There are no official confirmations, but in all probability the agreement is linked to the fate of civilian prisoners kidnapped by the Islamic State in July and still in the hands of the group. Daesh long ago called for the suspension of the SAA’s maneuvers in Al-Safa with the threat of killing all the hostages. These had stopped for about ten days and then they resumed. At that point, the jihadists killed two, reaffirming the request. The clashes in the area then continued intermittently, until Moscow intervened to find a solution.
