The U.S.-led coalition backed by allied Syrian forces made an airdrop in the eastern province of Deir Ezzor, tracking Daesh-linked militants, local media reported according to zamanalwsl.net.
The overnight airdrop was to hunt Sabahi Ibrahim, dubbed: Abu Hamza, in the town of al-Shaheel, according to Deir Ezzor 24.
The former Daesh fighter has escaped but his son was arrested, the local news site said.
The U.S. forces have made dozens of airdrops in the former ISIS-held territory to eliminate Daesh sleeper cells.
Also, the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) backed by the US helicopters have launched security patrols north of Deir Ezzor in the past 48 hours. At least 16 people were arrested.
The SDF is believed to be in control of about 25 percent of Syria and they fear that a U.S. withdrawal may pit them against regime troops and their allies, in the absence of a political agreement.
