Deir al-Zor - SMART

On Wednesday, the Islamic State (IS) attacked Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) sites in several areas of eastern Deir al-Zor, Eastern Syria.

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

Sources told SMART that IS members attacked SDF military sites in the town of al-Basira in eastern Deir al-Zor. IS members detonated two car bombs, one of them targeting a checkpoint near the al-Attal roundabout, and another exploded near the municipality, amid clashes between the two parties.

The sources stated that a shell killed a civilian from the village of al-Kashkia in the al-Bahra area. The shell came from the location of the clashes between the SDF and IS members who infiltrated the adjacent village of Hajin. The people of the al-Bahra village fled towards the town of Granij, taking advantage of a dust storm.

The sources added that the SDF members retreated from their sites in the village of al-Sousse as a result of the IS attack. IS media announced that it killed 18 SDF members during an attack on their sites in the villages of al-Bahra and al-Baqan, and in al-Sousse and Hajin.

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.
