ISIS resurgence | “International Coalition” helicopters fly over Deir Ezzor countryside adjacent to areas of Iranian-backed militias
Deir Ezzor province: SOHR activists have monitored the flight of “International Coalition” helicopters over the eastern Deir Ezzor countryside, which is adjacent to areas of the Iranian-backed militias, where several helicopters were seen over Al-Basira city.
According to reliable SOHR sources, SDF and “International Coalition” are conducting a security operation in SDF-held area, supported by the helicopters.
This comes as a result of the escalation of ISIS activity, as a response to the “Humanitarian and Security” campaign in “Al-Hawl Mini-State”, which was launched on August 25.
