BAGHDAD – On Dec. 29, 2022, the Global Coalition informed the Syrian Democratic Forces about six lethal rockets and a rocket launcher in al-Shaddadi, Syria. These rockets were found through the use of Coalition surveillance drones.
The SDF was able to successfully discover and seize the rockets and render them inert due to the information provided by the Coalition.
The SDF is the Coalition's only combat-credible partner force in northeast Syria, willing and capable of continuing the fight against ISIS. Coalition presence and support remain essential to enabling SDF operations to maintain pressure on ISIS.
