BEIRUT, LEBANON (10:20 P.M.) – The Islamic State (ISIS/ISIL/IS/Daesh) terrorist group managed to sneak out of the Baghouz Mountain region in eastern Deir Ezzor and cross the Euphrates River this evening.
According to a military source in nearby Homs, the Islamic State terrorists reached the town of Al-Sayyal in eastern Deir Ezzor, where they were eventually spotted by the Syrian Arab Army (SAA).
Once the Syrian Army spotted the ISIS terrorists in Al-Sayyal, a fierce battle would ensue between the two parties.
Intense clashes are still ongoing at this moment, as the Syrian Arab Army looks to eliminate all of the Islamic State terrorists that infiltrated from the eastern bank of the Euphrates River.
The ISIS terrorists are trying to reach the Badiya Al-Sham region in order to meet up with their comrades and evade capture by either the Syrian Army or Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF).
While the ISIS terrorists are besieged by the SDF, they have managed to reach the Euphrates on a number occasions using surprise attacks to break out.
