Deir al-Zor - SMART

On Friday, the Syrian Democratic forces and warplanes of the United State-led International Coalition against the Islamic State (IS) attacked IS locations in the town of Hajin near the Syrian-Iraqi border.

The International Coalition is a military coalition of 73 countries led by the United States, which allegedly restricts its military actions to fighting the IS, but has also killed hundreds of civilians during its bombings on IS-controlled areas.

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.

The general commander of the Jaysh al-Thouwar of the SDF, Ahmad al-Sultan, said that SDF members, the Jaysh al-Touwar, and the members from the Manbij military council, supported by the USA-led warplanes, attacked the IS locations in Hajin and destroyed two vehicles loaded with weapons.

The Jaysh al-Thouwar joined the SDF in 2015 and the Manbij military council in 2016.

A local source confirmed that the SDF members targeted the IS locations near Tal al-Jouabi with artillery and missile shells from the al-Omar oilfield area.

On Nov. 29, 2018, the USA-led International Coalition airstrikes on an IS prison in the village of al-Kishmah near Deir al-Zor, killed and injured dozens of prisoners and detainees.
