First US airdrop operation in regime-held areas | Man killed, two Iraqi and Syrian men, one of them leader of regime-backed militias in Al-Qamishli, arrested

Reliable sources have informed SOHR that a man was killed in an airdrop operation carried out by US forces.

The dead man has been living in Moluk Saray village for years and is believed to be an ISIS leader, local sources have confirmed.

During the US airdrop, the man was killed after refusing to surrender, and an Iraqi person and the commander of the military security faction were arrested in Moluk Saray village.

Two families were also arrested in the vicinity of the village. Their fate remains unknown, whether they were released, or whether they were arrested for being wanted.

SOHR activists reported that US forces carried out an airdrop operation in the early hours of Thursday morning in regime-held areas for the first time.

US forces carried out an airdrop operation in Moluk Saray village, 17 kilometres away from south of Al-Qamishli in Al-Hasakah countryside.

Furthermore, US forces have informed the residents of the village through loudspeakers of the need for everyone to enter their homes and turn off the light.

During the airdrop, US forces killed a person and arrested his family, another family and the commander of the headquarters of the military security supporters. The reasons for the commander’s arrest are still unknown, whether he is wanted by the US forces or because he resisted the US forces.

The airdrop operation ended at four a.m.
