US-Backed Forces Raid ISIS Cells in Syria
[DailySignal] The Kurdish-led Syrian Democratic Forces are executing a new series of raids against active ISIS-affiliated militants in eastern Syria with the support of the United States, the Voice of America reported Sunday.
A series of raids? How exciting!
The new campaign targets remnants of the Islamic State, also known as ISIS, in the Deir al-Zour province near Iraq, VOA News reported. The Syrian Democratic Forces military alliance is focusing on ISIS cells in the northern part of the province.

“On December 26, our Special Forces and International Coalition Forces arrested a member of a terrorist cell north of Deir al-Zour, during a joint raid operation,” the Syrian Democratic Forces said in a statement, VOA News reported.

The alliance also seized ammunition from the cell, the outlet reported.

The SDF, along with the U.S.-led Global Coalition to Defeat ISIS, performed other raids Sunday, VOA News said.

Recently, ISIS cell activity has increased, an explosive device targeting an SDF vehicle killed one person and injured another in the province on Saturday, the U.S. government outlet reported. ISIS fighters have increasingly targeted Syrian troops and allied militias in central Syria.
