SDF continue their military campaign against ISIS mercenaries’ cells in the countryside of al-Hasakah and Deir ez-Zor for the second consecutive day.
The campaign started yesterday from al-Dashisha town, southeast of al-Hasakah from 3 axes where the countryside of al-Hasakah will be combed, and it is moving towards the Euphrates River until it reaches the northeast of Deir ez-Zor.
Our correspondents who are keeping up with the campaign reported that SDF managed to arrest 21 mercenaries, during their raid on the mercenaries’ dens yesterday.
This campaign came after ISIS cells’ activity increased in the recent period, taking advantage of the conditions of the curfew to prevent the outbreak of the Corona epidemic and the commission of several crimes against civilians and the military, and also came on the basis of the region clans’ notables and sheikhs’ appeals to protect them from these cells.
6,000 fighters in the ranks of the Syrian Democratic Forces, Women’s Protection Units and Commandos in coordination with the international coalition forces present on the ground, in addition to air support from the coalition forces are participating in this campaign.
