The IS terrorists moved freely throughout the territory controlled by the forces of the pro Syrian regime,says the release to the agency.
It is reported that the coalition partner forces, namely the Magavir Es-Saura (MaT) group, destroyed more than 20 terrorists on December 13 near Al-Tanfa, when "an IG terrorist convoy passed through the territory controlled by the regime for the second time".
According to a coalition spokesman, MaT, "discovered an enemy convoy ... and quickly and professionally carried out an operation to prevent their further invasion."
Despite the presence of Russian-backed forces of the pro-Syrian regime in the area, the IS still finds ways to move freely along the borders where the regime’s forces are located and pose a threatquoted by the press service of General Jonathan Braga.
He also noted that the United States will continue to “work together with partner forces to hinder the ability of terrorists to regroup and reorganize.”

The coalition remains committed to supporting its partner forces for the final defeat of the IG,follows from the statement.
