Turkey - SMART

On Wednesday, activists denied the Syrian government forces announcement of seizing the entire Deir Ez-Zor Badia, Eastern Syria, after clashes with the Islamic State.

The government forces reported that it removed ISIS from an area of 5800 square kilometers after clashes using their warplanes, to the administrative border of Homs. The government forces added that ISIS members fled the area.

The activist Ahmed Ramadan told SMART that ISIS controls the Deir Ez-Zor Badia in western and eastern banks of the Euphrates River. He stated that ISIS controls the Hammad Badia and even the administrative border.

The activist Suhaib al-Jaber told SMART that no party could be stationed in the Deir Ez-Zor Badia because it is exposed and any party that tries to the station would be easily targeted from other parties. He noted that the strategy is limited to setting temporary bases for several hours and conducting patrols.

Al-Jaber added that the Syrian government during its patrols depicted some videos and exploited them by media. He stated that ISIS is still launching attacks on the vicinity of the city of Albuqmal, southeast of Deir Ez-Zor, abducting members, and crossing from the Bagouz landmarks towards the eastern bank of the Euphrates River, based on information from the residents of Deir Ez-Zor and activists in the governorate.

Intermittent clashes between the government forces and ISIS take place in some areas of Deir Ez-Zor, despite ISIS withdrawal and loss of most its-controlled areas of in recent months,  during battles with both the government forces supported by Russia and Iran and the Syrian Democratic Forces sponsored by the International Coalition.

The government forces seized control of parts of the governorate after battles against ISIS with the support of Russian forces and Shiite militias.
