SDF arrests six foreign ISIS members


The Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) has captured six foreign ISIS members in the eastern Syrian province of Deir ez-Zor, Syrian Kurdish People's Protection Units (YPG) said.

In a statement, YPG, a main component of the SDF, said the six members are from different countries, who had played key roles in the insurgent group's terrorist activities in the region in the past few years.

The US-backed Kurdish forces have intensified their operations to eliminate the militant group's dormant cells from the group's last pocket in the region.
