On Sunday, the Kurdish Autonomous Administration Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) regained control over four villages, which the Syrian government forces advanced in, in Deir Ez-Zor countryside, east of Syria.

Kino Gabriel, the spokesperson of the SDF, reported that the Syrian government forces supported by Russia and militias attacked SDF’ outposts to hinder the campaign of al-Jazeera Storm and fighting terrorism. Gabriel added that that the SDF fighters managed to regain control of the villages they lost earlier in government forces’ control.

The SDF reported no further information of casualties of both sides during the clashes; however, the SDF said that the government attack aims to “assault, support terrorism, and hinder efforts against terrorism.”

Lilawa al-Abdullah, the spokesperson of al-Jazeera Storm campaign, stated that Ahmad al-Jafal, a field commander of Deir Ez-Zor military council of the SDF, was killed in the battles. Al-Abdullah noted no further information.

Activists reported that international coalition warplanes bombed the government forces in the villages of al-Janayinah and al-Ji’a. An early count said the killing of 25 members of the government forces and capturing 50 others by the SDF.

On Sunday, 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 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.
