On May 20, ISIS announced that its cells in the Syrian governorate of Deir Ezzor killed or injured 11 fighters and commanders of the US-backed Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) in a double-tap attack.
According to a report by the Amaq news agency, ISIS terrorists ambushed two vehicles of the SDF near the town of al-Shheell in southeastern Deir Ezzor. The terrorists targeted the vehicles with machine guns.
As a result of the ambush, two field commanders of the SDF, one of them identified as “Amad Kurdi,” were killed along with a fighter. Two other fighters were injured.
The terrorists went on to target a third vehicle of the SDF, which was carrying reinforcements, with an improvised explosive device. Six personnel of the Kurdish-led group, including a field commander, were killed or injured.
ISIS cells in southeastern Deir Ezzor are getting bolder. This month, the terrorists blew up two headquarters of the SDF in the region. The first headquarters, located in the village of Tayyeb Al Faall, was targeted on May 10. The second headquarters, located in the town of al-Daman, was targeted on May 18.
The SDF and the US-led coalition conduct operation against ISIS cells in southeastern Deir Ezzor on a regular basis. Nevertheless, these operations appear to be ineffective.
