Turkey - SMART

On Sunday, the loyalist forces advanced in the eastern Euphrates, northeast of the city of Deir ez-Zor in Northeastern Syria, against the Kurdish Autonomous Administration's Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF).

Local activists reported that the loyalist forces including al-Shabiha, the Iranian-backed al-Baqir Brigade, and members of a sectarian militia affiliated to the so-called Syrian Hezbollah in the village of Hattla, seized the villages of al-Janaynih, al-Ji’ah, al-’Alian, and Shaqra, 5 kilometers north of Deir ez-Zor  city after SDF fighters withdrew following clashes in the area.

The activists noted that the SDF fighters supported by International Coalition’s air force, regained control over the villages of al-Ji’a and al-’Alian. The activists added that clashes are still taking place at the Western edges of the village of al-Janaynih and in the village of al-Hussan, amidst the International Coalition's bombing on the location of the clashes.

SMART is attempting to contact the SDF to find out about the recent updates of the battles against the loyalist forces, and the reason behind the attack.

The battles coincide with the SDF's preparations to launch a military attack against the Islamic State's (ISIS) outposts to oust ISIS fighters from the eastern Euphrates in Deir ez-Zor governorate.

In Feb. 2018, the International Coalition and SDF killed 100 members of the Syrian government forces in clashes in Deir ez-Zor following a government attack; however, the United States said that the International Coalition responded in self-defense.
