Deir ez-Zor Province:
Euphrates Post, a news source on Twitter, reported that at night, helicopters and reconnaissance aircraft of an international coalition led by the United States combed airspace in the east of the province, in particular east of the village of Jazira. In connection with the activity of the “sleeping state” militants of the “Islamic State” 1 in eastern Syria in the areas controlled by the Kurdish units of the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF), the international coalition has intensified reconnaissance sorties over remote villages where militants are believed to be hiding.
Syrian Arab Army (SAA) units attacked the positions of the Tahrir al-Sham jihadists in the outskirts of Kafr Nebel and near the village of Khish from artillery, according to Step News Agency. Information about the loss of radicals as a result of the shelling has not yet been reported. Opposition sources also said that the strongholds of the radicals were fired at by Syrian troops from rocket launchers in the cities of Khan Sheikhun and Kafr Sajna. Recall that the provinces have a temporary ceasefire that was introduced on August 31, however, this does not apply to the militants of the Tahrir al-Sham terrorist group.
Denmark is ready to send troops to northeast Syria to help the US-led coalition fight the Islamic State, Pentagon spokesman Jonathan Hoffman said in a statement on Friday, Al Masdar reported. According to Hoffman, “Danish troops will work with the remaining US forces in northeastern Syria to maintain stability and security.” Earlier this year, the U.S. admitted that coalition forces killed at least 1319 civilians during operations against terrorists in Syria and Iraq since August 2014. The coalition’s operations, as before, were not authorized by either Syrian President Bashar al-Assad or the UN Security Council.
