Amid growing ISIS activities | Unidentified gunmen fire RPG shells on SDF base in Deir Ezzor countryside
Deir Ezzor province: SOHR activists have reported that unidentified gunmen have fired RPG shells on SDF bases in Al-Busayra city in eastern Deir Ezzor.
This attack was followed by clashes with heavy machineguns between SDF members and the unidentified gunmen, which left a civilian dead and other civilians living near the site injured.
This development coincides with prevalence of ISIS cells in SDF-controlled areas.
Earlier today, SOHR activists reported seeing pro-ISIS graffiti that were expected to be drawn by the group cells on some walls and commercial shops in Al-Ezbah town under control of the SDF in north Deir Ezzor.
The graffiti read “Down Russia, Down the United States, revenge is imminent for crescent worshippers, Islamic State exists.”
On Dec. 6, SOHR activists reported that gunmen riding motorcycles stormed the building of the People’s Assembly and the Women’s Council in Al- Basira city which is under the control of SDF in the eastern countryside of Deir Ezzor, breaking down office furniture and threatened to kill the employees if they returned to their work.
