SDF 'Dismantled' Six Remote-Controlled IEDs In Northern Deir Ezzor

by: sdf-press.com

On April 29, the US-backed Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) uncovered six improvised explosive devices (IEDs) in the northern countryside of Deir Ezzor.

In an official statement, the SDF said that the IEDs were first uncovered by the locals. All six IEDs were placed on a road near the town of al-Kasrah.

“The six IEDs, which were prepared for detonation, were dismantled without causing any human or material losses … The SDF is now investigating and searching for the people who planted the [IEDs],” the statement reads.

A photo shared by the SDF reveals that the six IEDs were all equipped with remote-controlled detonators. The remote controllers can be also seen along the IEDs in the photo. This indicates that the IEDs were not active, but rather left in the area for someone to pick up later.

This method of espionage, known as a “dead drop,” is widely used by intelligence services and even terrorist groups to pass items or information behind enemy lines.

ISIS may be behind the dead drop found near al-Kasrah. IEDs are the weapon-of-choice for the terrorist group’s cells in Deir Ezzor. In fact, earlier this week ISIS news agency Amaq shared a video of a recent IED attack on vehicle of the SDF near al-Kasrah.

This case highlights the incompetence and poor training of SDF personnel, who can’t apparently tell if an IED is active or was simply placed as a dead drop.

Kurds should be next to get the Osacar after ISIS/al-Qaeda got it with the White Helmets. Terrorist Ziocorporate globalists in US/NATO/EU cuntries would celebrate enthusiastically. ISIS/SDF even got a dimplomatic office in Moscow long before Hezbollah got one.

Putin’s Zioterrorist business partners consider giving ISIS SDF uniforms to change into and declaring victory in Deir Ezzor to be smart military tactics and more SciFi PR for the cause is best.

I can agree with the author. The whole area need education in so many things, they has been kept away from and not only simple electronocs.

Its not enough to disagree with Assads 90 or 100%. The important step is knowing other and better replacements, which are many.
