BEIRUT, LEBANON (10:20 P.M.) – The ISIS terrorist group has launched a massive assault on positions of the Syrian Arab Army’s (SAA) Republican Guard east of the strategic crossroad town of Resafa.

According to preliminary reports, the attack is multi-pronged and so far the Republican Guard has lost seven men killed in action.

The specific detachment of the Republican Guard currently enduring the ISIS assault is the 124th Special Forces Brigade.

The Republican Guard claims to have so far destroyed one Toyota pickup and a BMP-1 infantry fighting vehicle (reportedly taken out in a minefield sown by the 124th Brigade) belonging to the terrorist group as well as killing and injuring dozens of its jihadists.

Finally, Republican Guard accounts of the battle claim that the 124th Brigade has so far ceded no points or positions to attacking ISIS militants.

Updates to follow.
