BEIRUT, LEBANON (1:38 P.M.) – Forces of the Islamic State terrorist group have launched an assault against the Syrian Army and allied paramilitary groups along the western shore of the Euphrates, targeting government defenses near the city of Al-Mayadeen.
Military-affiliated sources report that ISIS militants attacked Syrian troops at the hilltop of Tal Ar-Rahbeh which commands a considerable field of view over Al-Mayadeen.
The terrorist onslaught is noted to have been launched out of a large section of yet unsecured desert space in the western countryside of Deir Ezzor province.
At the present time, Islamic State forces are upholding their attack against government positions near and on the Tal Ar-Rahbeh and are noted to using light and medium weapons.
According to Al-Masdar News journalist Ibrahim Joudeh, such attacks by ISIS against Syrian Army positions along the western shore of the Euphrates take place on daily basis although some are a little more vicious than others at times.
