Deir ez-Zor Province:
An Islamic State terrorist attack on Syrian Arab Army (SAA) facilities near the village of Az-Zabari in the eastern part of the province is reported, according to Deir Ezzor 24. The attack was repelled. The locals reported the sounds of gunfire that were heard for an hour near the village. However, no casualties were reported among Syrian troops. Recall that some of the terrorists of the “Islamic State” from the “sleeping cells” are hiding in the desert Badiya al-Sham.
Orient News agency reported updated data on yesterday’s arrest of Wadd Al-Dayri, a member of the council of Deir ez-Zor. Yesterday, he was arrested by the Asayish Kurdish “police” in the east of the region. Al-Dayri was involved in public finance as a member of the provincial civil council. During an internal investigation, it was established that he allegedly appropriated funds for a total of 40 million Syrian lire (equivalent to five million rubles).
Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) deployed a security cordon around an industrial area in the east of Raqqa. The reasons for the tightening of security measures were not disclosed, but it can be assumed that the strengthening of existing checkpoints and the construction of new roadblocks is associated with a series of bombings that were carried out in the city center and in the suburbs and aimed at SDF patrols and their headquarters. Two Kurdish fighters were shot dead by unknown militants in the village of Al-Qalta in the north of the province, according to a source on Twitter (@ XXVII27). ISIS terrorists have already been blamed for the attack.
According to the portal Step News Agency, a large convoy of armored vehicles for the SDF from the international coalition arrived in the cities of Kobani and Ain Issa.
According to Twitter source Rana Alasad, terrorist groups violate the ceasefire in northwest Hama. They attacked the firing points of the Syrian Arab army on the outskirts of the city of al-Qasabiya, firing them with mortars and incendiary shells. Syrian troops also repelled the attacks of the radicals and fired on militants of the Jaish al-Izza group in the area of Al-Latamin, Kafr Zeta and Zakat, as reported by SMM Syria.
After an exchange of attacks on the Syrian-Turkish border between the units of the Democratic Forces of Syria and the Turkish army, it was reported that the Turks had detained one of the members of the so-called Kurdish police Asayish in the village of Aziziya near the town of Ras al-Ain. According to activists, SDF militias also cordoned off the Hasakran area of Guweiran and launched a raid. Kurds searched homes and arrested many young people and men in the area. Activists expect, after a series of bombings in the provincial capital, that “anti-terrorist” raids will affect every district of the province, but their main goal, along with the confiscation of even kitchen knives from local residents and personal weapons, is to forcibly recruit Kurdish People’s Self-Defense Forces, according to Twitter Channel of the Syrian Commission on the Affairs of Detainees and Missing Persons (@sncompad).
