It came out that the Syrian regime and ISIS engaged in talks and plans against the SDF. Accordingly, the regime will open the way for ISIS gangs to cross into SDF areas in Deir ez-Zor territory.
The Syrian Ba’ath regime is after dirty schemes as it faces a deadlock and failure to make progress despite utilizing all technical means in its operation on Deir ez-Zor with the support of Iran and Russia.
According to reliable sources on the ground, a deal was made between ISIS and the Syrian regime, according to which the regime will open way for the ISIS gangs that will leave Deir ez-Zor city centre to cross into areas liberated by SDF.
For this reason, the agencies and media outlets of the regime are spreading news that Deir ez-Zor has been liberated by Syrian forces.
In a statement on October 20, SDF forces announced that the Syrian regime had sent an ISIS convoy into their areas via the Salihiyah route on Oct. 18. The statement said that SDF forces noticed and neutralized the convoy of the gangs.
