BEIRUT, LEBANON (2:30 P.M.) – The Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) busted an Islamic State (ISIS/ISIL/IS/Daesh) sleeper cell that was operating inside Raqqa city.

According to reports, the SDF’s intelligence units uncovered the Islamic State sleeper cell in Raqqa after a series of terrorist attacks that targeted their forces and locals in the city.

During the operation, the SDF managed to arrest seven members of the terrorist group, while also seizing the contents inside the sleeper cell.

The contents seized by the SDF included explosives and weapons that would be used for future terrorist attacks in and around Raqqa city.

Since the Islamic State surrendered Raqqa, they have maintained a number of sleeper cells around the governorate in a bid to wreak havoc on the Syrian Democratic Forces.

The Syrian Democratic Forces have been actively pursuing these sleeper cells to eliminate the last remnants of the terrorist group in the Al-Raqqa Governorate.

  1. SDF intelligence is working well, but should become even better. The elsewhere reported cooperation with Mossad can only improve their efficiency.

    • They could also take some examples from FSB :
      According to the Moskovski Komsomol newspaper, Russian security forces had decided to bury the terrorists from Moscow theatre hostage crisis wrapped in pigs’ skins.
      It’s time for the West to do the same.
