BEIRUT, LEBANON (7:40 P.M.) – The so-called Islamic State (ISIS) has launched a massive offensive in the countryside of the
Deir Ezzor Governorate, today, targeting the Syrian Arab Army’s (SAA) positions near the key town of Al-Mayadeen.

ISIS launched this new offensive in order to take advantage of the large dust storm that is sweeping through eastern Syria at the moment.

No gains have been reported.

According to a military report from this front, ISIS began today’s assault by detonating a car bomb in the southwestern countryside of Al-Mayadeen; this would result in a series of intense clashes that are still ongoing.

Tonight’s attack by ISIS is considered their largest assault against the Syrian Army since their brief counter-offensive after losing Al-Sukhnah.

After securing the capital (Yarmuk in the south and Duma in the east), this nest of vipers in the desert should be next – together with al-Tanf and al-Zuqf.

Don’t keep calling them Isis AMN because they’re not, they’re just stooges waiting to give the US an excuse to invade Syria. They’re paid and supplied, as well as protected by the US military at the base at Al-Tanf and can only exist because of them. The sneaky LGBTQueer US government is just waiting for the right moment to put these guys to work and have them take over either Deir ez-Zor or Palmyra, and then brutally massacre the local population giving the US the perfect excuse to intervene and also invade Syria via Jordan.
