The SDF gunmen plundered civilians’ assets and other valuable properties after they managed to capture the town of Hajin in Southeastern Deir Ezzur.
The SDF’s move was carried out at command, a field source said, adding that the SDF militants sotred the booty at a base in Hajin and later took them to an unknown location outside the town.
The source further said that the SDF is also preventing Hajin’s residents from returning home claiming that the town is still a military zone.
The source went on to say that almost 80 percent of the Hajin has been destroyed by the US-led coalition and the SDF.
The London-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights (SOHR) reported last week that the SDF managed to advance against ISIL in Southeastern Deir Ezzur despite the US’ decision to withdraw from Syria.
SOHR said that the SDF managed to advance against ISIL near the small towns of al-Sha’afah and al-Sousah in Southeastern Deir Ezzur.
It further added that most of the ISIL gunmen had already left positions.
Clashes between the SDF and the remaining pockets of the ISIL are underway in the region.
In the meantime, SDF Spokesman Rami Abdul Rahman said heavy fighting is underway between his forces and the ISIL near al-Sah’afah and al-Sousah, adding that the SDF managed to capture a key village in the region.
The US president announced last week that his government in resolved to pull forces out of Syria.
