Deir al-Zor - SMART

The Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) advanced in their military operations against the Islamic State (IS) in southeastern Deir al-Zor governorate, Eastern Syria. The clashes killed one of the SDF leaders.

The SDF is 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.

On Tuesday, local sources from Deir al-Zor and pro-SDF activists reported that the SDF advanced in the town of al-Sousse of the Albukamal city (120 kilometers southeast of Deir al-Zor) from the village of al-Hawi.

The sources added that the SDF approached the neighborhoods of Falastine, al-Arqob, Safavneh, the Mozan road and the roads leading to Derbona, al-Shuhadaat, al-Aalayat, and al-Bubadran, where there are civilians in some of them. The IS prevents people from entering the neighborhoods where clashes occurred.

A military source from the SDF confirmed the death of the heavy weapons official in Deir al-Zor Military Council, nicknamed Hussein Dushka, during clashes in al-Sousse, without any further details.

The International Coalition aircraft dropped leaflets on the city of al-Shaafa demanding IS members to surrender.

The SDF slowly advanced into IS-controlled areas in Eastern Deir al-Zor as a result of clashes between both sides after the SDF announced the last phase of the al-Jazeera Storm Operation against the IS, killing and injuring fighters on both sides, forcing civilians to flee the area.
