Despite ending the presence of ISIS mercenaries militarily in their last stronghold in Baghouz by the Syrian Democratic Forces, they changed their behavior and moved to guerrilla warfare through their sleeper and disguised cells, which have recently become active after the threats of the Turkish occupation army to occupy the area.
The Syrian areas occupied by Turkey have become a den for ISIS cells and their leaders, so that the operations, activities and attacks of mercenaries are planned on North and East Syria from there.
On January 20, cells belonging to ISIS mercenaries attacked the al-Sina’a Prison in the city of Hasaka; To smuggle 5 thousand mercenaries from this prison.
The Syrian Democratic Forces revealed the plan of the attack later, so that the planning and attack operations were managed from those areas, and they aimed to occupy Hasaka and then al-Hol, which was witnessing riots and chaos by ISIS cells and their families at the time.
In al-Hol camp, the most dangerous camp in the world, the situation is no different. It has become more dangerous since the beginning of this year. Women are raising and educating children according to extremist ideas, and the Syrian Democratic Forces have warned of the new generation that is growing up inside the camp.
The active ISIS cells inside the camp have killed 44 people from the camp's residents since the beginning of this year, including 14 women and two children, using sharp tools and new methods that spread fear and panic in the hearts of the camp's residents
To stop the expansion of ISIS cells inside the camp, the Internal Security Forces, with the support of the Syrian Democratic Forces and the Women's Protection Units, launched the second phase of the "Humanity and Security" campaign, to comb the camp and search for the hidden cells.
During this 3-week campaign, the Internal Security Forces found weapons, tunnels for ISIS cells, flags, symbols, ISIS currency and Turkish military uniforms, confirming the close relationship between Turkey and ISIS mercenaries.
ISIS activity threatens the possibility of its return

Turkish threats are resurrecting ISIS
Al-Tamr highlighted the Turkish threats and attacks and noted, "These Turkish threats and attacks are tantamount to reviving the spirit of ISIS.

ISIS will not be eliminated without reaching a national Syrian vision

As is happening in northern Syria that is affiliated with al-Qaeda, such as Hayat Tahrir al-Sham" Terrorism, the Guardians of Religion Organization and other organizations that are considered part of the terrorist and criminal orientation of the terrorist organization ISIS itself.”
