More civilians have been freed from the captivity of terrorist organization ISIS.

YPG-led Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) are making further advances in the ongoing final phase of the Operation Cizire Storm against ISIS mercenaries in Hajin region of Deir ez-Zor.

SDF fighters have rescued 150 more civilians from ISIS. The freed civilians include two Yazidi women and a child, whose names are Meqbûla Xidir Baco, Raniya Celal and Buhar Bedir.

ISIS mercenaries are taking civilian population captive and using them as human shields in an attempt to impede the advance of SDF forces.

Syrian Democratic Forces had launched the final phase of the Operation Cizire Storm against ISIS to the east of the Euphrates on September 10, 2018. The offensive is focused on Hajin town which is considered to be the last stronghold of the terrorist organization in the region.

On October 31, SDF temporarily suspended the operation in response to the attacks launched by the Turkish state focusing on Kobane and Gire Spi.

SDF announced on November 11, 2018, that they were resuming the operation upon the talks between the SDF General Command and International Coalition officials, diplomatic efforts and positive calls of SDF allies that are fighting terror.
