As local media sources reported, the SDF managed in the early hours of this morning to carry out a security operation in the town of Al-Sabha, during which the SDF fighters raided 3 houses in the town, accompanied by forces from the International Coalition.
The operation resulted in the arrest of one of the “princes” of the “ISIS” organization who held a security position responsible for the movement of ISIS cells in the city of Deir Ezzor known as “Abu Jihad Al-Ansari”, near the Al-Iman Mosque in the town of Al-Sabha, according to local sources, quoting a leader in “SDF”.
