BEIRUT, LEBANON (6:10 P.M.) – Intense clashes broke out in the eastern region of the Euphrates River Valley this afternoon following a new attack by an Islamic State (ISIS/ISIL/IS/Daesh) sleeper cell in the town of Dhiban.

According to reports from this front, the Islamic State sleeper cell attacked a group of fighters from the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) in Dhiban, resulting in fierce clashes and a number of casualties.

The reports said that at least nine SDF fighters were killed and several others were badly wounded as a result of this attack.

Meanwhile, at least three of the Islamic State terrorists were killed and two others captured by the Syrian Democratic Forces – the captured ISIS fighters were foreigners, the report added.

In response to this attack by the Islamic State, the Syrian Democratic Forces have sent reinforcements to Dhiban in an attempt to protect the town.

SDF is fully aware of IS, Assadist and Turkish sleeper cells. Their attention now is on wiping out that last pocket . But intelligence collection is going on, and with the rule of Assad and IS, there are many with a score to settle. They will inform on the sleepercells and likely, no certainly, there will be infiltration. Once SDF forces have recuparated, one can expect a large crackdown on all known sleepercells. Interrogation will provide links to other cells and so on.

I see no laughs in that at all. Enough should be enough. Its expected from here, that after the hard takings and the chock some corners will regain like that.

We see that in not only Syria but the whole world. No enough is enough. Here some we see some foreign leftovers too.
