Deir al-Zor - SMART

The United States-led International Coalition bombed the village of al-Baghouz, 122 kilometers east of Deir al-Zor, Eastern Syria, killing an Islamic State (IS) commander.

On Monday, a relative of the killed IS commander reported that the International Coalition bombing killed Sufian al-Rawi, the official IS recruiter, or missionary, from the city of Albukamal.

On Sept. 30, 2018, the IS reseized the village of Baghouz al-Foqani after clashes with the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF).

Earlier, the SDF announced launching the last phase of the al-Jazeera Storm Operation against the IS and advanced into IS-controlled areas after the two parties clashed, killing and injuring members of the SDF and displacing many civilians from the areas of the clashes.
