BEIRUT, LEBANON (7:20 P.M.) – The Islamic State (ISIS) has launched a massive counter-offensive in western Deir Ezzor, today, after spending the last few days on the defensive.

ISIS began their assault by storming all of the areas the Syrian Arab Army recently captured during their large-scale offensive early in the week.

According to a military source in Damascus, the Syrian Arab Army was forced to withdraw from several of the recently liberated areas in western Deir Ezzor after the Islamic State broke through their lines this afternoon.

The source said that more than 10 Syrian Army soldiers were killed during the Islamic State’s wide-scale assault, including one officer.

The Islamic State is now working to advance their positions in the Badiya Al-Sham region in a bid to reach the western outskirts of Al-Mayadeen.

If SAA supported by all it iranian and russian proxies, is unable to hold the Badya, maybe they should step aside and let SDF handle them. They at least have, for that fight, consistent allies.

Someone knows the art of Russian warfare. Always do rapid retreat to draw your enemy into the open then mow them down. It’s a brilliant tactic and it never fails.
