ISIS Cells Launch Attacks On SDF Positions In Southeastern Deir Ezzor

ISIS cells launched two attacks on several checkpoints and positions of the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) in the town of Diban in the southeastern Deir Ezzor countryside on February 16, according to the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights (SOHR).

“Members of the group [ISIS] attacked a checkpoint of the SDF in the area [Diban]… They returned later and launched an attack on the town, which lead to violent clashes,” the SOHR’s report reads.

According to the UK-based monitoring group, the SDF repelled the attacks with support from the US-led coalition, whose warplanes and attack helicopters struck several hideouts and gatherings of the attackers.

Two fighters of the SDF were killed and one other was injured during the attack. One of the attackers was also killed. However, the rest were able to withdrew.

These attacks were likely a desperate attempt to distract the SDF, that’s besieging hundreds of ISIS fighters and commander within a 600m2 pocket, 40km south of Diban. According to an SDF commander, the pocket will be captured very soon.

    Hint to SDF: If you can’t defeat the head-choppers and ‘negotiate their release’ into the desert, then they’re going to come back and f’king kill you. What don’t you understand about that, dumb asses…

    Oh sorry. I thought these guys were defeated?!! So how many of them are supposedly left? 10,000? 50,0000? 100,0000? Place bets now

    Amazing on how these “terrorists” (nudge nudge wink wink) appear magically and out of nowhere and armed and raring to go!

    It should be obvious that this will be used as the excuse by the criminals in the US for them to stay illegally in Syria!

    A 600 m2 pocket is about the size of my tennis court, :)

    At one ISIS per m2 , its 600 ISIS. This report must be bollocks. Thirty or so Isis is more likely.
