Deir al-Zor - SMART

On Sunday, the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) allowed commercial trucks to enter Islamic State-controlled towns in Eastern Deir al-Zor, Eastern Syria.

A local source reported that commercial trucks loaded with food and goods passed through the SDF-controlled town of Abu Hamam to the IS-controlled towns of al-Sha'fah and al-Susah in Eastern Deir al-Zor.

The sources added that the trucks passed through the al-Qahawi crossroad towards the town of al-Dahra near the town of al-Shaitat in Deir al-Zor. Two months earlier, the SDF prevented commercial trucks for crossing to the IS-controlled towns, according to the same source.

Two weeks earlier, about 30 trucks loaded with food entered the SDF-controlled area near the Malh oil well to the town of al-Sha'fah. Local sources assumed that the trucks were sent by SDF commanders to the IS warehouses or traders close to the IS.

The IS controls some eastern towns in Deir al-Zor, which are besieged by the SDF supported by the International Coalition, led by the United States and the Syrian government. The IS-controlled towns have been shelled frequently in recent months.

The SDF are comprised of predominantly Kurdish multi-ethnic, Arab, and Assyrian/Syriac militias led by the Kurdish People's Protection Units (YPG). The SDF operate mostly in Northern Syria, including al-Raqqa and Deir al- Zor.
