BEIRUT, LEBANON (12:00 P.M.) – The Islamic State (ISIS/ISIL/IS/Daesh) carried out another deadly ambush in eastern Syria, killing and wounding several members of the pro-government Palestininan paramilitary group “Liwaa Al-Quds” (Jerusalem Brigade).
According to a military source in Damascus, the Islamic State terrorists carried out the ambush near the Bir ‘Ali area in the Al-Mayadeen Desert of Deir Ezzor.
The source said at least ten Liwaa Al-Quds fighters were killed as a result of the ambush by the Islamic State terrorists.
This latest ambush by the Islamic State marks the second time in less than a week that a pro-government convoy has been attacked by the terrorist group in eastern Syria.
Since they lost almost all of their territory in eastern and central Syria, the Islamic State has relied on their sleeper cells to carry out attacks against the Syrian military and the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF).
Both the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) and SDF are currently working to clear the last areas under the Islamic State control.
