Our forces and the international coalition forces started, today morning, a large-scale military and security operation against Daesh sleeper cells in Wadi al-Ajeej, northern countryside of Deir Ezzor.
The campaign is targeting the Daesh sleeper cells and their weapons cache and the dens used by members and leaders of Daesh in the region bordering Iraqi Government.
The operation aims to control the routs of smuggling weapons and terrorist members.
The four-day operation has started today’s early morning after several missile strikes conducted by the coalition forces in conjunction with launching light bombs and intensive flight by reconnaissance planes.
This operation comes under the joint continuous efforts between our forces and the International coalition forces in north and eastern Syria in order to prevent Daesh and other terrorists’ organizations from creating chaos, threatening the security and stability in the region and preventing the sleeper cells from achieving their subversive activities.
