On December 10, 2022, our Counter-terrorism Units (YAT) spotted an ISIS cell involved in terrorist acts in Deir Ezzor.
Enabled by the international coalition, our forces raided the house where the two-terrorist cell was hiding in the al-Sabkha town and called them for safe surrender. However, they refused to answer the safe surrender call, then clashes erupted with the two terrorists resulting in the killing of the two terrorists, detonating of one explosive belt, and confiscation of two Glock pistols with ammunition.
No SDF forces were injured in this operation.
Our anti-terrorism operations will continue against ISIS terrorist cells in the region to achieve the enduring defeat of ISIS and maintain safety and security.
