Deir Ezzor | Patrol of SDF destroys methods of smuggling on bank of Euphrates River

Deir Ezzor province: A patrol of SDF opened fire on several river ferries on the bank of Euphrates River near Boqros Town eastern of Deir Ezzor and destroyed them, to prevent ISIS cells from using them to sneak into the second bank of the river.

The smugglers use several methods to deliver fuels such as transportation by pipe, water rafts, and via containers by pulling them in the water.

On January 10, a member of the “Autonomous Defence” was injured in armed clashes with local gunmen in Al-Hossan Crossing within SDF-held areas in western Deir Ezzor countryside.
