Syrian tribes in Syria’s east allied to the government have begun a recruitment drive to continue the fight against ISIS.

The main line of operation will be in the eastern region of Deir Ezzor where ISIS are on a rapid decline fighting not only against pro-government forces, but also by US-backed and Kurdish-led Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF). 

Storming troops will receive a 100,000 Syrian pound ($200USD) monthly salary, with fortifying troops receiving 70,000 Syrian pounds ($145USD).
