Deir ez Zor - SMART

On Thursday, the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) closed river crossings with areas controlled by the Syrian government forces in the Deir ez-Zor governorate, Eastern Syria; however, the SDF kept one crossing opened.

The Syrian Democratic Forces 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 ez-Zor.

Sources reported that the SDF closed the crossings over the Euphrates river from the town of al-Jazrat to the villages of al-Ji'a and al-Janina in Western Deir ez-Zor. The sources noted that closing the crossings came in the prelude to the formal opening of the al-Salihiya crossing to impose taxes and fees on crossing civilians and goods.

The sources noted that the SDF announced the closed crossings a military zone, and prevented residents from entering the areas. The sources added that the SDF said that they would confiscate goods entering via the closed crossings.

Residents of Deir ez-Zor pay thousands of Syrian pounds every day to cross between areas controlled by the Syrian government forces and those controlled by the SDF.

In mid-August 2018, Russia received the management of river crossings between areas controlled by the Syrian government forces and loyalist militias and those controlled by the SDF in Deir ez-Zor. The SDF and Syrian government reached agreements on opening crossings for civilians who would like to return to areas controlled by the Syrian government.
