The Kurdish-led Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) have launched their operation towards Deir Ezzor city from two axes in the north.
This operation was discussed on Friday in Tabqa with military officials from Russia, the United States and the SDF in presence.
The SDF are advancing to the city of Deir Ezzor, north of Shadadi with fierce conflicts between ISIS and the SDF occurring in the region.
The new campaign will see the first axis run parallel to the Khabour River and the second axis starts from the village of Abu Khashab and head towards the city.
This will most likely cause tensions between Syrian government forces and US-backed SDF as relations are less than cordial.
