ISIS resurgence | ISIS members attack military vehicle belonging to SDF-backed “Commandos” forces in northern Deir Ezzor countryside

Deir Ezzor province: Two gunmen on a motorcycle believed to be of ISIS cells targeted, with machineguns, a military vehicle belonging to “Commandos” forces of SDF in Al-Rouaysheid town in northern Deir Ezzor countryside, amid a state of high alert in the region. However, no casualties have been reported.
This coincided with the arrival of military reinforcement of SDF and the Internal Security Forces to the site of the attack.
This comes in light of escalating attacks by ISIS cells on positions of regime forces and SDF in the Syrian desert.

Yesterday, SOHR sources reported that 22 members of regime forces were killed and two others were captured due to an attack by ISIS members on regime headquarters in Hasrat village in Al-Bukamal countryside in eastern Deir Ezzor.
