ERBIL (Kurdistan 24) – Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) on Wednesday said they confiscated one of the largest weapon caches near the town of Tal Hamis in the Hasakah province.

“This cache is considered one of the largest caches to be seized by our forces after the battle of al-Baghouz and the second strong blow to be dealt to the ISIS cells since the battle of Al-Sina’a prison in al-Hasaka,” the SDF said in a statement.

“Based on the initial investigations and intelligence information, the terrorist cell was planning to use these weapons in a potential attack on the al-Hol camp, the eastern countryside of the al-Hasaka, in parallel with the last attack on the al-Sina’a prison,” the SDF said.

“After their failed attack on the al-Sina’a prison (in Jan this year), ISIS switched to plan B which is attacking the al-Hol camp. However, the dangerous terrorist scheme has been thwarted, thanks to the security measures taken by our forces, the rapid intervention operations, and arresting many members of the terrorist cells.”

The US-led anti-ISIS coalition in a tweet said that their SDF “partners continue to demonstrate their will & ability to build a safe and secure Northeast Syria.”

“Well done to SDF for deterring the ISIS threat and countering their desperate attempts to execute attacks & threaten the region.”

Earlier on Sept 20, the SDF also said they prevented an attack on the al-Hol camp that hosts thousands of ISIS families.
