Deir ez-Zor Province.
In the province of Deir ez-Zor, a private meeting took place between the leaders of the Kurdish militants from the pro-American coalition “Democratic Forces of Syria” (SDF) and representatives of large clans of the Arab tribes of the Syrian desert. The “oil minister” SDF participated in the meeting, which took place on the territory of the large Al-Omar field, the Step News news agency reported.
The Arab clans demanded that Kurdish militants and the United States send part of the money received from the sale of illegally extracted Syrian oil to the needs of the local population, which suffers from total unemployment, high prices and the absence of the minimum infrastructure necessary for life in the region.
The “oil minister” of Syrian Democratic Forces resolutely refused the representatives of the Arab clans, offered them in return a bribe for loyalty (which they rejected). A delegation of Arabs warned Kurdish terrorists and their American masters: tomorrow, the entire province of Deir ez-Zor will be embroiled in mass protests against the SDF and American occupation.
One of the field commanders of the Khayyat Tahrir al-Sham terrorist coalition was destroyed by an air strike from a military drone of an international coalition led by the United States, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights (SOHR) reports.
The car of the Algerian field commander Abu Ahmed al-Muhajir was destroyed by a rocket in the area of the city of Atma in Idlib. The terrorist served as the leader and chief instructor for military training in the special forces Asaib al-Ahmar.
Meanwhile, in the south of Idlib, clashes continued between the SAA and the militants associated with the Jebhat al-Nusra group, banned in Russia 1). Actions SAA was actively supported by Russian and Syrian aircraft. Halab Today reported that the Russian Air Forces have attacked militant positions in the area of Al-Kuraki, Tell al-Dam, Abu Sharaj, Al-Saraj and Qatra in the area of Maaret al-Numan. This information is confirmed by a Twitter source (@thiqanewsagency). Step News also reported attacks on militant positions in the Urm al-Juz and Kansafra region, as well as Kafr Sidjan and Al-Kabir.
SAA fought against terrorist forces in the vicinity of Suruc and Ras al-Ward. According to a source on Twitter (@Salah_Addin_), during the clashes, gunmen shot residents of one of the houses in order to occupy it for defense.
Meanwhile, it became known that a Turkish convoy of 13 armored vehicles entered the territory of Idlib near the border checkpoint Kafr-Lusin, and headed to the area of the village of Maar-Hattat in the south of the province. This was reported by a Syrian source on Twitter (@SyriawatanNews).
ISIS media sources announced that over the past day, “sleeping cells” in the province of Raqqa and surrounding areas destroyed 12 Kurdish militants. Information on this is provided by an analytical source on Twitter (@ jacksanders1965).
It became known that the Russian military police sent additional forces and supplies to the Ain-Issa airbase left by the American invaders. The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights (SOHR) reports that at least 15 trucks and diesel tankers have been spotted in the Ain Issa region of Raqqa. At the same time, according to SOHR, the American patrol left the Ain Issa area and headed east, towards Hasakah.
The attack with the dead and wounded occurred in the city of Ras al Ain in the province of Hasakah. SOHR reported that a car bomb exploded in the city center; at least six people were injured, and two more were killed.

Recall, recently in the north of Syria, a number of terrorist attacks took place against the fighters of pro-Turkish units and the Turkish military. In general, as reported by the Turkish Ministry of Defense, from October 9, when Operation Source of Peace began, Kurdish terrorists killed 45 civilians and injured another 244 people in Turkey and within the security zone in northern Syria, in the provinces of Raqqa and Hasakah. Data from the Turkish Ministry of Defense leads Halab Today.
Meanwhile, a spokesman for pro-American Kurdish militants Mustafa Bali (@mustefabali) announced that the US military, together with the SDF, had captured a large smuggler who was transporting captured militants from the Islamic State group (banned in the Russian Federation) from the protected area in the Al-Khol refugee camp .
The smuggler, known as Shawaysh Sattam Saud al-Ayrash, was captured in the area of the village of Al-Dashish near the border of Iraq. He maintained a wide network of ISIS terrorist relations.
It is worth noting that the Al-Khol camp, on the territory of which, after the defeat near Al-Baguz, tens of thousands of ISIS terrorists who surrendered, their wives and children were driven into captivity, was under the control of Kurdish militants before Operation Source of Peace. Thus, the smuggler who exported ISIS terrorists could only work in conjunction with the knowledge of Kurdish terrorists working for the United States.
Iraqi security forces have announced the arrest of the deputy “caliph” of the “Islamic State” (banned in the Russian Federation), known as Abu Khaldun. ISIS’s “deputy head” was captured by Iraqi police in the territory of the province of Kirkuk, in the area of Vahad-Izhar in the Khawija area, reports Lebanese publication Al Masdar. There he lived under the name of Shaalan Ubeid. In ISIS, Abu Khaldun was the emir (ruler) of the Iraqi province of Salah ad-Din.
Media sources of the Islamic State terrorist group said that IS fighters carried out five attacks on Iraqi security forces in the province of Diyala over the past 24 hours. This was spread by an analytical source on Twitter (@ jacksanders1965). It is alleged that ISIS has 50–70 militants in the province.
