Deir ez-Zor - SMART

The Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) gained control of the village of Bahra, 100 kilometers east of Deir ez-Zor in Eastern Syria, after clashes with the Islamic State.

On Tuesday, a spokeswoman for the military council of Deir ez-Zor of SDF, Lailua al-Abdullah told SMART in a statement that the clashes with the Islamic State lasted for more than 15 days, ending with the SDF gaining control of the village. Search operations are ongoing.

Lailua added that while dozens of Islamic State members were killed in the confrontation, pockets of ISIS are still present in those areas, using civilians as human shields as well as detonating car bombs. Also, they have targeted SDF posts in the vicinity of the village.

Coincidentally, warplanes raided the International Alliance, targeting several Islamic State sites in the town of Bahra.

On Sunday, the Islamic State attacked the al-Tannak oil field, east of Deir ez-Zor province, which is controlled by SDF. It also executed two of its bodyguards.

The eastern countryside of Deir ez-Zor witnesses ongoing battles between SDF and the rest of the Islamic State. On the other hand, loyalist forces clash with ISIS.

By the end of the last month, the SDF announced its control over the entire town of Grangebeck after clashes with ISIS. More than ten members of the loyalist forces were killed before this by ISIS’ attack on their positions in the eastern countryside.
