DAMASCUS, SYRIA (1:15 P.M.) – On Monday at daybreak, an ISIS Inghimasi (special forces) unit attacked army forward positions near the Jabbul Lake in the eastern Aleppo, killing many government troops in the process.

According to Amaq Agency, 17 soldiers of the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) were killed by a hit-and-run attack on the village of Kharaj Diyam, directly west of Jirah Airbase.

Several soldiers were reportedly killed while still sleeping in tents near the frontline. The death toll could not be independently verified by Al-Masdar News.

The SAA temporarily paused its eastern Aleppo counter-insurgency operations last week as a critical situation in northern Hama prompted the Syrian High Command to redeploy most of the elite Tiger Forces along with renown Major General Suheil Al-Hassan.

Meanwhile, ISIS released an astonishing 20-minute long video from battles in Aleppo province, showcasing clashes with the SAA and Turkish Army earlier this year.

Yet another lesson for some of the SAA that digging trenches with overhead cover is more sensible than ‘camping’ in tents in a combat area, in fact even near a combat area when one considers the accuracy of long ATGM’s that have revolutionised infantry capability.

Digging in is hard work but at least it prevents a grave being dug for you later.

“The death toll could not be independently verified by Al-Masdar News.” Most important line in the article.
