Deir ez-Zor, Syria (North Press) – On Tuesday, the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF), with the participation of the US-led Global Coalition, arrested a person accused of belonging to the Islamic State Organization (ISIS) in a town east of Deir ez-Zor. 

A military source of the SDF in the city of Hajin, 110 km east of Deir ez-Zor, said the forces arrested a former member of ISIS, through an airdrop, with the participation of Coalition. 

The member refused to surrender, and the arrest took place in the al-Hassaniya neighborhood, western Hajin, after a four-hour pursuit, the source added.

The military source pointed out that the suspect returned from Turkey three months ago to carry out terrorist operations for the benefit of ISIS.
