Deir Ezzor: blast hit SDF vehicle, one fighter killed
(Zaman Al Wasl)- A US-backed fighter was killed and others wounded Tuesday by an improvised explosive device ramped a military vehicle in eastern Deir Ezzor province, local sources said.

The blast came as a serise of scattered attacks return to the scene in the former territory of the Islamic State.

Local activists say the attacks came in retaliation to arrest campaign by the Kurdish-led Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) that track former Daesh militants in eastern Syria.

Despite the SDF and the US-led coalition announcing the defeat of the terror group’s self-proclaimed caliphate on March 23, 2017, Islamic State sleeper cell attacks continue in Arab-majority areas that were liberated from the militants.
The US-led coalition confirmed that although a territorial defeat had been achieved, “the job to ensure a lasting defeat of [ISIS] is still to be done.”
