Deir al-Zor - SMART

On Thursday, the People’s Protection Units (YPG) recognized the killing of ten of their members during clashes with the Islamic State (IS) in the Deir al-Zor governorate in Eastern Syria.

The YPG is a predominantly Kurdish military faction in Syria that controls areas in al-Raqqa, al-Hasakah, and Aleppo. The YPG fights the IS and is supported by the United State-led International Coalition.

The YPG stated that the members were killed on Nov. 24, 2018, when they blocked IS attacks on the YPG locations near the IS-controlled town of Hajin, east of Deir al-Zor.

The YPG also said that a Syrian government forces sniper killed a YPG member when he was performing his duty at a checkpoint in the town of al-Hawl, south of the city of al-Hasakah, Northeastern Syria.  

On Nov.11, 2018, the SDF, led by the YPG, announced relaunching the al-Jazeera Storm operation against the IS especially in the town of Hajin, which is considered the IS last stronghold in Syria. The YPG and the SDF advanced slightly so far.
