Mortar shells | SDF renew shelling on positions of the regime and local gunmen mobilize in Deir Ezzor

Deir Ezzor province: SDF members stationed in Al-Shahil Town fired mortar shells on Al-Shamiya area within areas of the regime forces and local gunmen in Deir Ezzor countryside, where explosions took place in Al-Hawayej Town due to mortar shells landing near the banks of Euphrates River. However, no casualties were reported.

A few hours ago, members of SDF stationed on the bank of Euphrates River in Al-Shahil City in Deir Ezzor countryside targeted military positions of the regime and local gunmen in Boqros Town on the western bank of Euphrates River with machineguns, after monitoring movements of local gunmen in the region. However, no casualties were reported.

On March 19, three explosions were heard in the outskirts of Al-Mayadeen City “the capital of Iranian militias in Syria” in Deir Ezzor countryside, coinciding with the flight of anonymous drones over the region. However, no casualties were reported.

Military and security forces are stationed along with the Iranian militias at Al-Balaoum area and other positions to secure the region, following the escalation of activity by ISIS cells.

On the same context, commanders of Iranian militias informed the concerned authorities about the imposition of curfew after Al-Ishaa Prayer in Al-Mayadeen City, to conduct patrols in the city.
