After two ISIS commanders arrested in security campaign | International Coalition Forces return to eastern Deir Ezzor and find weapons hidden underground
Deir Ezzor province: SOHR activists have reported that International Coalition Forces returned to the al-Zarr village in the eastern countryside of Deir Ezzor, where they had arrested two ISIS commanders in an airdrop in the early hours of Tuesday morning. The Coalition Forces returned to this area with one of the arrested ISIS commanders who guided them to a place where weapons were hidden under ground, as Coalition forces found and confiscated these weapons which were intended to be used in attacks against the International Coalition and Syria Democratic Forces.
Observatory sources reported earlier this morning that the International Coalition carried out a new airdrop at midnight in al-Zarr village in the eastern countryside of Deir Ezzor, with the participation of eight helicopters, including a personnel carrier. During this campaign, a former official in the health department of the Euphrates State of ISIS and another ISIS commander from al-Bolail were arrested. Moreover, the International Coalition Forces also blew up the house of a civilian using IEDs.
It is worth noting that neither SDF nor ground forces participated in the security campaign.
On July 21, Observatory activists reported that Syria Democratic Forces (SDF), supported by the International Coalition forces, launched a new security operation in Kherbat Jamous village in east al-Hasakah countryside near Jabal Kawkab which is under the control of Syrian regime. The security operation targeted a house after the troops cordoned it off and calls the people inside the house to surrender, but the suspects resisted, as exchange of fire erupted between the two sides. Meanwhile, International Coalitions fighter jets intervened and bombarded the house, which caused the death of three suspects believed to be ISIS members who were inside the house.
