Security operation | counter-terrorism forces arrest three ISIS members in Al-Raqqah

Counter-terrorism units, backed by Coalition helicopters, in SDF-held areas have carried out a security operation in Mazra ‘at Al-Jalaa, north of Al-Raqqa city, arresting three ISIS members.

According to SOHR activists, counter-terrorism units have found explosive substances and materials used in the manufacture of explosives in possession of ISIS cell in Mazra’et Al-Jalaa, where ISIS cells manufacture explosives, and then distribute them to ISIS members to target military leaders and Autonomous Administration institutions in northern and eastern Syria.

This comes in light of escalated ISIS revenge attack following the “humanity and security” campaign in Al-Hawl camp,” which began last August 25.

This morning, SOHR sources reported that Syria Democratic Forces (SDF), backed by International Coalition Forces, stormed Al-Zarr village in Dier Ezzor countryside, amid frequent flights by helicopters.

SDF security forces were searching for members of ISIS cells in the village, where clashes erupted between SDF and suspects before some of them escaped to Al-Kassar area in northern Deir Ezzor.

During the campaign, 13 people were arrested, nine of whom were released after investigation, while the four others are still held and interrogated.
