The Internal Security Forces continue to carry out security operations against ISIS cells whose activities have increased following the recent Turkish attacks.
In a statement, the Internal Security Forces of North and East Syria announced that they had captured ten members of an ISIS secret cell and seized a large amount of ammunition.
The statement remarked that the activities of terrorist organizations and related cells have increased after Turkish forces escalated attacks in the region.
“Today (November 28), we captured 10 ISIS members in the rural area of Abu Xashab town. Our forces first tracked the movements of a cell linked to armed terrorist attacks, then arrested cell members and confiscated their weapons after a successful operation,” the statement revealed.
The confiscated weapons are listed as follows: 2 RPK bullets, 18 Kalashnikov rifles, 45 ammunition clips, 2 Explosives, 4 hand grenades, 5 hunting rifles and 6 grenade capsules.
“Our forces are continuing to interrogate the cell members. They will later be sent to the General Prosecution Committee. Our forces will continue their work to capture terrorist cells whose activities have increased following the recent Turkish attacks. By supporting these organizations, the Turkish state aims to create strife in the region and undermine the security of our people and regions,” the statement added.
