Kurds confiscate the houses of civilians in the province of Deir ez-Zor. The staff of the Center for the Reconciliation of Hostile Parties of the Russian Federation delivered a humanitarian cargo to the city of Daile in Dar’a. Under the blows of the US coalition, about 30 people were killed in Deir ez Zor, a military source in the Federal News Agency (FAN) in Syria, Ahmad Marzouq, said.
Briefly about the outcome of the confrontation.
The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) and allied forces: clear the rubble in the streets of the city Douma in East Ghouta of Damascus.
“Syrian Free Army” (SSA): lost two hills near the village of Kafr Shams in the north of Dar’a.
Tahrir Al-Sham: survived the explosion of IEDs near the courthouse in Binnish northeast of Idlib.
Kurds: continue to pull forces in the area of the city of As-Suvar in the west of Deir-ez-Zor; confiscate the houses of civilians in the province of Deir ez Zor.
The International Coalition: conducted bombardments in the cities of As-Susa Baguz Faucani in the southeast of Deir ez-Zor, killing about 30 civilians.
Province of Damascus.
The forces of the SAR continue to clean up the territories of East Guta in the north-east of Damascus. The news portal Damscus Now reports that government forces have started cleaning streets in the city of Douma, which was released by the Syrian Arab Army (ASA) last. Bulldozers are used to disassemble rubble.
In the meantime, representatives of the Russian Center for the reconciliation of the warring parties report that about 72,000 civilians residing in the refugee camps returned to Gutu. Recall, the oasis completely passed under the control of the SAA in late March, after the militants of the anti-government group “Jaysh Al-Islam” left the Douma and were taken to the north of the ATS.
Province of Aleppo.
At the same time, work is under way to improve the humanitarian situation in the city of Aleppo and its environs. The Al Raddar News news agency reports that the Energy Minister of the SAR announced that new projects will be implemented in the near future that will ensure a stable supply of electricity. Recall that the administrative center of the region is often attacked by Islamists of the terrorist coalition “Hayat Tahrir Ash Sham” and its allied formations based in the west of the province. From time to time this leads to interruptions with electricity. Nevertheless, soon this problem will be solved.
Deir ez-Zor Province.
Military aircraft of the international coalition led by the United States resumed bombing in Deir ez-Zor. According to the Twitter feeds (EuphratesPost) and (SyriawatanNews), dozens of civilians were killed and wounded as a result of the chaotic blows of the Western Union air force in the vicinity of the city of As-Susa, located near the Syrian-Iraqi border. It is noted that the air strike also inflicted the settlement of Baguz Faukani, located south of As-Susa. In total, more than 30 people died as a result of combat sorties of the coalition. There were no reports of losses from the “Islamic State 1”.
Meanwhile, the pro-American Democratic Forces of Syria (SDF) continue to build up military power in the vicinity of the settlement of As-Suvar on the eve of the upcoming operation against clandestine groups of the “Islamic state”. As the information portal Damscus Now reports, Kurdish radicals confiscated several houses of civilians in order to place their command posts in them. Thus, members of the Kurdish armed formations once again proved that the welfare of civilians for them does not matter. Earlier, there were also cases of looting from the SDF forces.
Province of Dar’aa.
The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) continues to develop a large-scale offensive in the south-west of the Syrian Arab Republic (SAR). Under the control of government forces, two hills crossed the outskirts of the village of Kafr Shams, which was liberated the day before. A military source in the Twitter network (sayed_ridha) reports that the militants have lost the heights of Tell-Antar and Tell Al-Allakia.
Meanwhile, a humanitarian cargo from the Russian Center for the reconciliation of warring parties weighing ten tons was delivered to the city of Daile north of the Dar’a. According to the information agency El Dostor, kits with food, water and personal hygiene items were distributed among the local population. This was reported by the head of the CPVC, Major-General Alexei Tsygankov. It is noted that about 20 thousand inhabitants have already returned to their homes this week after the settlement was liberated by the Syrian Arab Army (SAA).
Province of Idlib.
A new explosion occurred near the administrative center of the region. According to Twitter-channel (jisrtv) information, the explosive device detonated in city Binnish to the north-east of Idlib. It is reported that the explosion occurred right at the entrance to the courthouse. It remains to be seen whether there are casualties among civilians. According to unconfirmed reports, the terrorists of the “sleeping cells” of the “Islamic state” are responsible for the organization of the explosion. Recall that in recent years, the defense of Islamists has seriously weakened as a result of internecine clashes and terrorist attacks, which allows jihadists IS1 to freely enter the territories controlled by the militants. In addition, IS radicals often carry out terrorist activities under the guise of civilians.
