Anti-ISIS Operation | Two ISIS Terrorists Captured in Deir Ezzor Countryside

On June 12th, our SDF Commando forces conducted a successful security operation in Al-Shuhail town, Deir Ezzor’s eastern countryside. The operation targeted a dangerous terrorist cell of ISIS consisting of two terrorists who were involved in numerous terrorist acts in the area.

Through meticulous intelligence gathering, our forces pinpointed the terrorists’ hideout. A swift operation secured the area, leading to the capture of both operatives.

The first terrorist, Faisal Ziad Al-safad known by the alias Mesha’al al-Iraqi, held a leadership position within ISIS. He masqueraded as the “assistant Wali of Deir Ezzor” to further his nefarious activities. He is additionally responsible for issuing directives for these terrorist operations. The second terrorist is “Muhannad Khaled Al-Afi.”

Both terrorists are involved in a series of attacks against our forces and innocent civilians. Their involvement included planning and participating in bombings, planting IEDs, and carrying out assassinations, particularly within the Deir Ezzor countryside.

Our forces confiscated the following:

  • AK 47 /1/
  • AK 47 magazines /1/
  • Explosive belts /1/
  • Mobile phones /9/
  • Personal documents
  • Sums of money (SP. Dollars)

Our forces affirm their unwavering commitment to tracking down and eliminating the ISIS terrorist cells, dismantling their hiding places, and cutting off their resources to preserve the security and stability of our regions and ensure the safety of our people.
