Today, the remnants of Daesh (the self proclaimed Caliphate and Islamic State) released photos showing the targeting of a Syrian Arab Army bulldozer outside of Abu Kamal, Syria. It has also been reported that the militants destroyed an SAA outpost near the city.
A note book fell into coalition hands that belonged to a captured Daesh fighter. The notebook was filled with intelligence notes, including a hand drawn map of Daesh influence and offers key insight into how the terror group views itself.
This kind of propaganda is a far cry from the beheading videos and public executions of only a year ago, representing a stark decline in the terror group's influence and power.
Iraqi police have also arrested six IS cell members operating in Mosul, Iraq. The city was once the de facto capitol of IS and was the site of al-Baghdadi's 2014 declaration of Caliphate.
As of today, the terror group has claimed attacks as far east as Baghdad and Diyala Province, Iraq.
A bomb exploded in Raqqa, Kurdistan killing one child and injuring fifteen others. It is unclear who was responsible for the explosion. A tiny minority has staged a protest in the city as well, singing pro-Assad slogans and waving signs. The protest was against the ongoing coalition airstrikes against Regime targets.
In Northern Syria, the Free Syrian Army has engaged Turkish military after Turkey sent reinforcements into the occupied Afrin region as part of it's "Operation Euphrates Shield".
Israel has deployed Unmanned Aerial Vehicles that are continually patrolling it's northernmost border for a constant feed of information. The Israeli government has also strongly reaffirmed it's commitment to refusing to allow the entry of Iranian forces into the conflict.
Syrians continue to gather publicly in Damascus to offer a public show of support for the Assad regime. This follows the second day of heavy bombardment by the Assad regime between the cities of Hamas and Homs on both military and civilian targets.
