Deir al-Zor - SMART

On Saturday, the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) clashed with the Islamic State (IS) inside the city of Hajin, 100 kilometers southeast of Deir al-Zor, Eastern Syria.

The SDF are mainly comprised of the Kurdish People's Protection Units in addition to Arab, Turkmen, and Assyrian/Syriac military factions. The SDF is supported by the United States-backed International Coalition against the Islamic State and fought them in al-Raqqa, Deir al-Zor, Aleppo, and al-Hasakah in Northeastern Syria.

Members from the SDF said that fierce clashes occurred in the al-Hawamah neighborhood, which is considered the entrance of Hajin. The clashes coincided with SDF artillery shelling on clashes locations.  

Local sources from the village of al-Hos, 65 kilometers east of al-Raqqa, reported that the IS detained three SDF members who are initially from the village. The sources did not determine the exact date of detention. The IS detained the three members during the battles on the Hajin’s perimeters in Deir al-Zor.

On Wednesday, Nov. 28, 2018, the general commander of the Jaysh al-Thouwar of the SDF, Ahmad al-Sultan, said that they sent 300 fully-equipped members to the Hajin area to besiege the IS in its last stronghold.  

On Nov. 11, 2018, the SDF announced relaunching military operations against the IS in the Deir al-Zor governorate after the operation stopped for 13 days due to Turkish bombings on SDF-controlled villages east of the Euphrates River.
