Several SDF locations along the eastern Euphrates have been taken over by the Al-Akidat Syrian Tribe, according to local sources in the Deir Ezzor region after fights with light weapons in the town of Al-Shuhail, according to local sources.
Another position targeted by the Al-Akidat troops was a water bridge that connects the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) and government-controlled territory near Al-Shuhail.
It is through the seizing of this crossing by Al-Akidat troops that they will be able to get access to government territories west of the Euphrates.
As a result of the confluence of two rivers (the Al-Khabur and Euphrates rivers), Al-Shuhail is located on the eastern bank of the Euphrates River, and its citizens are members of the Al-Akidat tribe. Al-Shuhail has a population of approximately 20,000 people.
