Two more children died in the Al-Khol Kurdish camp in Hasakah. About 900 refugees returned to Syria from Lebanon and Jordan in the last 24 hours. Two IEDs were discovered in a mosque in the city of Al-Sousse in Deir ez-Zor, a military source of the Federal News Agency (FAN) in Syria, Ahmad Marzouk (Ahmad Marzouq), reported.
Briefly on the outcome of the confrontation:
The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) and allied forces: are shooting with the Islamists on the outskirts of the “Greater Idlib” zone.
Tahrir Ash-Sham: continues to provoke clashes with the SAA at the border between Idlib and Latakia.
The Kurds: discovered an IED in the city of As-Sousse in the southeast of Deir ez-Zor; fenced off a plot for the families of militants of ISIS1 in the Al-Khol camp in Hasakah; arrested eight civilians in Raqqa.
Province of Deir ez-Zor:
A military source on Twitter (DeirEzzor24) claims that two explosive devices were found in the city of Al-Sousse, located in the southeast of the province in the areas occupied by Kurds. They were laid in the building of the mosque of Abu Bakr Al-Siddik. About whether it was possible to defuse the bomb, not reported. Local activists believe that IEDs were installed by militants of the Islamic State1, carrying out underground attacks in the control zones of the Syrian Democratic Forces(SDF). Recall the settlement was captured by Kurdish troops in the beginning of this year after intense bombardments conducted by the US Air Force-led international alliance. Despite this, it is assumed that terrorist groups are still hiding in the area.
The Facebook channel of the Ministry of Defense of Russia (mod_russia) reports that in about 24 hours about 900 people returned to Syria, they were in camps for displaced forces located in Jordan and Lebanon. In accordance with the data of the Russian Center for Reconciliation of the Warring Parties and Controlling the Displacement of Refugees, 311 Syrians arrived from the Lebanese Republic, crossing the Jaydet Yabus and Tell-Kalah checkpoints, including 93 women and 158 children. At the same time, 579 people, mostly women and children, crossed the Syrian-Jordanian border at the Nasib border crossing in Dar’a.
At the borders of the “Big Idlib”, intense mutual shelling between Bashar al-Assad forces and militants of Islamist gangs does not abate. According to the Twitter channel (Step_Agency), the radicals whose troops are stationed near the city of Jisr Ash-Shugur in the west of the region, are firing at territories controlled by the Syrian Arab Army (SAA), in the northern part of Latakia. As is known, the jihadists of the terrorist coalition Hayat Tahrir Ash-Sham and the Islamic Party of Turkestan are based in the western outskirts of Idlib. No information about the losses of the parties in manpower or military equipment has yet been received. Thus, Dzhebhat An-Nusra 1 continues to impede the stabilization of the situation on the line of contact between the forces of the parties.
The Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) continue to carry out illegal mobilization of civilians in the region. According to the news portal Al Manar News, Kurdish militants arrested eight more civilians in the provincial capital with a view to their further forced dispatch to the front. Earlier it was reported that such measures to replenish their troops evoke a negative reaction from the civilian population and often lead to anti-Kurd rallies and demonstrations. However, this does not stop the “democratic army” from forcibly recruiting.
Province of Hasakah:
The news agency Al Manar News reports that two more children have died in the Al-Khol refugee camp located in the provinces occupied by Kurds. According to military sources AMN, they died due to lack of medicines and lack of access to medical care. Recall, recently, seven more children died. This indicates that the humanitarian situation and living conditions in the camp continue to deteriorate, despite the death of more than three hundred people since the beginning of this year.
It also became known that part of the territory set aside for a temporary accommodation center will be fenced with barbed wire and trenches for the maintenance of the wives and children of the terrorists of the Islamic State. Recall that earlier there were reports that members of militant families are in Al-Khol, however, Kurdish media claimed that they were isolated from the civilian population who were forced to live in the camp.
