BAGHDAD, Iraq – Combined Joint Task Force – Operation Inherent Resolve calls for an immediate end to the continued clashes in the Deir ez-Zor region.
Destabilization of the region caused by the recent violence has resulted in tragic and needless loss of life. It is imperative that all local leaders resist the influence of malign actors who promise many rewards but will deliver only suffering to the peoples of the area. This poses dire consequences and only allows for a situation that nobody welcomes—the resurgence of our common enemy—Daesh.
As we maintain our stance in support of the Syrian Democratic Forces, we emphatically urge all forces to immediately cease fighting and come to a peaceful resolution that allows us to focus on our shared goal—the enduring defeat of Daesh.
