The Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) arrested a Daesh leader and some members of the group in Azzir village in the eastern Deir Ezzor countryside.
This was during a security operation the SDF carried out, with support of four International Coalition’s helicopters. The operation targeted a house near the “Abu Saad” mosque, arresting Saleh Abu Sumaya and his wife. Later it was found out that Abu Sumaya was working in arming Daesh and organizing assassinations for it.
During the operation, clashes took place between the SDF and persons from Azzir village for about half an hour as they refused to surrender, but helicopters targeted their place with a guided missile and sound bombs, forcing them to surrender.
The operation is part of the security campaign the SDF is carrying out with support of the Coalition to root out and eliminate Daesh in the region.
