SOUTHWEST ASIA – The Maghawir al-Thowra, an Operation Inherent Resolve partner force in Syria, detained 11 Daesh fighters inside the 55-kilometer deconfliction zone in southern Syria, July 10, 2018.

The MaT interdicted the ISIS fighters, believed to be traveling from southwest Syria, while conducting unilateral counter-Daesh operations inside the DCZ.

“This is evidence of our partner forces’ effectiveness in the counter-Daesh fight,” said Maj. Gen. James Jarrard, Commanding General of special Operations Joint Task Force-Operation inherent Resolve. “As Daesh movement from southwest Syria continues, our partners will interdict and disrupt these forces to ensure the defeat of Daesh in the region.”

MaT members conduct daily counter-Daesh patrols to support Coalition Forces in the defeat-Daesh mission and to provide security and stability to those living in the DCZ. This detention of 11 Daesh fighters follows the arrest of nine fighters on July 7, 2018
