In the presence of members of the SDF General Command, our SDF Commander-in-Chief, Mazloum Abdi, received yesterday night General Michael Kurilla, the new Commander of the U.S. Central Command (Centcom) in the Middle East.
During the meeting, the two sides discussed the seriousness of ISIS and the resurgence of its terrorist acts in the region. General Kurilla pledged to provide more support to secure the prisons and camps holding ISIS detainees and their families, in addition to the commitment to continue the mission of fighting ISIS by staying in Syria.
Gen. Kurilla also underscored the importance of maintaining the security and stability of north and eastern Syria to prevent the resurgence of ISIS, eliminate its cells, and dry up its environment.
Gen. Kurilla and his delegation were briefed closely on the conditions of the al-Hol camp that holds ISIS families and the al-Hasaka prison of ISIS detainees.
