Kurdish forces commander Mazloum Abdi on Saturday October 19th said his forces have restarted military operations against elements of the terrorist organisation Isis in Syria, after three days of suspension.

"We have restarted military action against IS cells in Deir Ezzor. Our forces are working there with the coalition forces," Mazloum Abdi said in a phone interview.

This comes as US and Turkey reached a ceasefire agreement on Thursday, suspending a Turkish offensive in northeast Syria and allow Kurds safe withdrawal.
