Small groups of special forces hunt Daesh cells in the shadows. In Iraq there are Falcon Cells, Lions of Amrli and Golden Division. At Deir Ezzor, SDF’s HAT/YAT and the Sand Hippos.
The Islamic State, after the defeat against the SDF at Deir Ezzor, turns into guerrilla warfare against soft targets. Like when it was born in Iraq in 2006 after AQI.
The ISF, after taking the streets of Diyala that lead to the mountains, tighten the circle on the Islamic State. Syria, the SDF at Deir Ezzor intensify the hunt for the Daesh fugitives.
Jazeera Storm has also initiated similar actions in Deir Ezzor. Objective: to block the growing wave of hit and run Islamic State attacks and to clean up the region from Daesh.
The Islamic State tunnels at Deir Ezzor begin to empty. Daesh jihadists give up to Jazeera Storm to avoid death due to attacks or starvation.
While Jazeera Storm's SDF put an end to the presence of the Islamic State in Baghouz, Inherent Resolve increased the pressure. And the SAA attacked the Daesh fugitives.
The north axis of Jazeera Storm approaches Al-Ulay'at and the southern hits the Islamic State in Susah. Daesh from an army becomes more and more guerrilla.
