Syria Alerte de sécurité

Syrian Democratic forces (SDF) kill two regional IS leaders in Deir Ezzor province on May 22; heightened security presence and retaliatory attacks possible

TIMEFRAME expected from 22/5/2020, 12h00 until 31/5/2020, 11h59 (Asia/Damascus). COUNTRY/REGION Deir Al-Zor province

Event

On Friday, May 22, the western-backed Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) announced that they had killed two regional Islamic State (IS) leaders during an operation in Deir Ezzor province. The IS leaders were reportedly responsible for operations in northern Baghdad and logistics in Iraq and Syria.

A heightened security presence and possible retaliatory attacks are to be expected in Deir Ezzor province over the near term.

Context

To date, the Syrian conflict involves many parties, including the Syrian government, the Russian government, the Iranian government, the Turkish government, a US-led coalition, and numerous armed groups on the ground (including the Islamic State) with competing goals.

Advice

Due to extremely poor security conditions, Western governments generally advise against all travel to Syria, with some banning travel to the country. Professional security advice and support should be sought prior to any travel to Syria.
