After trying to escape | “International Coalition” forces pursue ISIS commander and kill him in Deir Ezzor

SOHR activists have reported that SDF, backed by “International Coalition” aerial support, launched a security operation in Al-Takihy village in Deir Ezzor countryside, to arrest a commander of “Al-Hasaba” Service of ISIS, while he was in the house of one of his relatives in the village.

According to reliable SOHR sources, the commander known as “Saif” was hiding in Al-Takihy village, and tried to escape after hearing helicopters flying over the region, where an “International Coalition” drone targeted him, killing him immediately.

This comes in light of the increasing activity of ISIS cells in SDF-held areas in northern and eastern of Syria, especially after ISIS members begged for their supporters, coinciding with the security operation launched by the Internal Security Forces in Al-Hawl camp.

Yesterday, the International Coalition Forces and the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF), backed by Coalition helicopters, carried out two security operations, over two days, in Ghuwayran neighbourhood in northern Al-Hasakah, in areas controlled by the SDF.

During these security operations, SDF and Coalition arrested three ISIS members and confiscated weapons in their possession.
