ISIS has claimed multiple assassinations of SDF officials deep behind the frontlines of Deir ez-Zor, with two being in the same area around Jadid 'Akidat (81 km from Hajin, 29 km from Deir ez-Zor City), and one just west of Tabqa, Raqqa.

Pentagon: "We have confirmed that there was an attack on an IDP camp near Deir Ezzour last week, we have no information supporting the large number of hostages alleged by President Putin and we are skeptical of its accuracy. We are also unaware of any US nationals located in that camp"
Putin says ISIS has seized nearly 700 people, including US and European nationals, in part of Syria thought controlled by US-backed forces. Russian leader says ISIS is threatening to execute 10 of them a day, but does not specify what militant group's demands are.

Report that ISIS cells have gathered in Hamrin range with as many as 150 militants who plan on attacking the neighboring areas soon. Of note, Brigade 52 was on the range today with support from Army Aviation, but there are complex tunnel systems ISIS uses.
