Three elements of the Syrian democratic forces were killed in a horrible way this afternoon, Thursday (May 28, 2020) by Daesh, according to Deir Ezzor 24 network correspondent.

Our correspondent added that the killing occurred when gunmen of Daesh attacked a military post of the SDF’s customs in al-Shihabat village in the western Deir Ezzor countryside.

He pointed out that the attackers fled the scene after the attack.

It is worth mentioning that Daesh cells have been carrying out occasional killings, robberies and kidnappings in the areas of Deir Ezzor east of the Euphrates, and in return the international coalition and the SDF have expanded their security operations against the organization in Deir Ezzor.
