Security chaos in areas held by SDF: public security forces arrest ten people for “dealing” with ISIS cells
Deir ez-Zor province – The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights:
SOHR sources say that public security forces of SDF arrested ten people this morning in the town of Al-Baguz for “dealing” with sleeper cells of the Islamic State, including an emir in Al-Baguz town in eastern countryside of Deir ez-Zour. Explosive rounds used for assassinations were found in arrested people’s possession.
On April 13, The Syrian Observatory monitored an explosion, caused by an improvised explosive device (IED) targeting a vehicle of the Syrian Democratic Forces near the bridge of Al-Busayrah city in eastern rural Deir ez-Zor. No casualties were reported.
Reliable sources reported earlier that two gunmen riding a motorcycle assassinated a former Islamic State security officer of those who later joined SDF intelligence, by shooting him in the town of Al-Shuhayl in eastern countryside of Deir al-Zour.
On the other hand, two unidentified men riding a motorcycle targeted Syrian Democratic Forces checkpoint with machine guns in the village of Al-Hawaij east of Deir ez-Zor. No casualties were reported.
