7 gunmen arrested during combing operations in Deir ez-Zor countryside

The Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) managed on Thursday morning to arrest 7 gunmen who participated in targeting the security points, taking advantage of the peaceful demonstration that took place in the eastern countryside of Deir ez-Zor city.

Our correspondent from the eastern countryside of Deir ez-Zor stated that at 04:00 am, SDF raided several homes after the sheikhs of the region's clans reported the presence of some militants in the orchards of al-Shuhail town.

Our correspondent indicated that the raid resulted in arresting 7 armed persons after the forces came under fire during the raid.

According to SDF's field commanders, the process of combing the area will continue to eliminate all gunmen pushed by the Syrian regime and its militias to the northern bank of the Euphrates, and those who targeted their military points.

The eastern countryside of Deir ez-Zor in Ziban, al-Shuhail and al-Huwaij town had witnessed an attempt by armed groups to take advantage of the street boiling in the area to provoke fighting between the existing military troops and the people of the region.

According to the commanders, the confessions of the arrested gunmen about the supportive parties, how they move, and their goal of the operations will be released to the media outlets.
