Having accomplished training courses | Large number of NDF members starts combing operation in Deir Ezzor desert

Deir Ezzor province: National Defence Forces brought in new military reinforcement of 30 military vehicles to western Deir Ezzor countryside to being a combing operation in west Deir Ezzor desert.


The convey was escorted by a large number of members of National Defense Forces to participate in the combing operation.


This came after regime forces had accomplished a training course for 100 members of National Defense Forces to be prepared for the combing operation.


The Syrian desert has witnessed noticeable escalation of ISIS attacks, including planting mines and surprise attacks, against regime forces’ positions.


On November 28, SOHR sources reported that regime forces completed military training for 100 members of the National Defence within the 137th Brigade, who were trained on heavy weapons and cannons, where explosions were heard during the past hours in the southern desert in Deir Ezzor as a result of the training.


Members of the National Defence are preparing to begin a combing operation in Deir Ezzor desert, searching for “ISIS” members, who are hiding in positions and caves within the desert.
