On October 16, our SDF Anti-Terrorism Units (YAT), in cooperation with the International Coalition forces, conducted two security operations targeting one of the ISIS terrorist cells in the al-Shuhail town, Deir Ezzor’s southern countryside.
Supported by air surveillance from the International Coalition Forces, our forces successfully apprehended four terrorists who were involved in smuggling and supplying the ISIS terrorist cells with weapons and ammunition, in addition to preparing the IEDs for conducting terrorist acts targeting the civilian facilities to destabilize the security of the region.
Various weapons and military equipment were confiscated during the operation, including:
-AK-47 rifle /1/
-Mobile phones /1/
-Wi-Fi Reuter /2/
Our SDF forces, in close partnership with the International Coalition, will persistently pursue ISIS cells to eliminate them and maintain security and stability in the regions of NE Syria.
