ISIS, regime forces attack SDF positions in Deir ez-Zor


DEIR EZZOR – The Baath regime forces and ISIS gangs have simultaneously attacked the positions of the SDF. Although SDF fighters were able to repel ISIS attacks, the attacks of the regime forces continues. SDF fighters are gaining great successes within the scope of the Jazira Storm Campaign, launched 45 days ago. The attacks of the ISIS gangs and regime forces continue increasing against these advances.

ISIS gangs around 17.30 hours carried out an attack against SDF positions located at the Jafra Train Station Centre. SDF fighters responded to these attacks and they were repelled. Nine gang members were killed in these clashes.

On the other hand, the regime forces around the same hours carried out an attack against SDF positions in the Jubayla village of Deir ez-Zor. SDF fighters are responding to the regime forces within the framework of legitimate defense.

ISIS, Turkey-backed rebels launch simultaneous attacks on Kurdish positions in Aleppo


ARA News

Aleppo – Headquarters of the Kurdish-led Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) in Aleppo Governorate were exposed to simultaneous attacks by Islamic State’s (ISIS) militants and Turkey-backed rebels of the Euphrates Shield, military sources and activists reported on Wednesday.

The ISIS jihadi fighters bombed SDF positions in the northern countryside of Aleppo with mortar shells. This was coupled with heavy artillery bombardment by the Turkey-backed Euphrates Shield rebels on SDF headquarters east of Aleppo.

More than 20 SDF fighters were killed and dozens wounded in the attacks, according to an SDF officer who spoke to ARA News at the frontline.

The offensives targeted SDF positions in the towns of Hasila, Harbal, Sheikh Issa and Meranaz.

“These simultaneous attacks on our headquarters by ISIS and the Euphrates Shield were definitely coordinated,” SDF officer Habun Osman said.

“Obviously, there is a high-level cooperation and coordination between ISIS terrorists and Turkey’s mercenaries to hit the Syrian Democratic Forces,” the SDF official told ARA News.

In the meantime, the rights activist and member of the Syrian Democratic Council, Rezan Hiddo, reported that rebels of the Euphrates Shield have handed over several villages in Aleppo countryside to ISIS.

“The Turkey-backed rebels of the Euphrates Shield group have delivered the villages of Taltana, Deir Hawa, Alba, Beraan, Homad and Baruza to the Islamic State militants,” Hiddo told ARA News. “This comes as a result of an undeclared agreement between the two groups to fight side by side against the Kurds and allied SDF factions.”
