The maneuvers, in which Inherent Resolve also participates, serve to find an important IS cell. The area, however, is the most used by jihadists to infiltrate east of Deir Ezzor.
The Isis militiamen revealed to the SDF of the Operation Round Up the location of the mines and devices hidden at Deir Ezzor. This is thanks to the fact that they were treated with humanity and respect in the Kurdish prisons
The SDF at Deir Ezzor had an unprecedented victory over Isis. Not so much under the military point of view, but above all from the human one. The forces of the Operation Round Up (Jazeera Storm) managed to persuade the Islamic State jihadists captured to reveal where the mines and artisanal devices (IED) had been placed near the villages in the region. This was carried out without violence. But by using the opposite “weapon”. The one of respect of rights even if of enemies and also when these are in prison. To convince the Daesh militiamen to speak, in fact, was the equal and human treatment received in the Kurdish prisons. The result was also that several fundamentalists began a process of rehabilitation. In practice, in the east of Syria violence and barbarism lost against humanity.
In the meantime, the Syrian army (SAA) launched an offensive against the Islamic State at Suweida. Also a Daesh convoy attempting to escape was destroyed
Meanwhile, in the south of the country the Syrian army (SAA) launched a ground offensive against Isis at Suweida. The maneuvers took off after an agreement was reached between the regime of Assad and the fundamentalists to surrender in exchange of their life. After a series of intense bombing of the posts of the Islamic State, the soldiers intervened. In just a few hours, by operating on the axes of Shannan Al-Asfar, they advanced by 11 kilometers inside the territory controlled by Daesh, managing also to establish military outposts. On their way the soldiers conquered Maghr Mesaleh, Tal Razin, Ghbshe, Maghr Malha and Shibki. Moreover, the air fighters of Damascus destroyed a convoy of jihadist vehicles that were trying to leave the area. As elsewhere, the militiamen were trying to escape presumably towards one of the two areas still controlled by them in Syria: the Badia desert and the strip of land between Hajin and Harse at Deir Ezzor.
