Moments ago, the Islamic State of Iraq and Al-Sham (ISIS) launched its third suicide attacker towards the Deir Ezzor Military Airport this morning in a bid to break-through the Syrian Arab Army’s (SAA) fortifications at the southeastern entrance of this strategic site in eastern Syria.

In a matter of three hours, ISIS has sent three suicide bombers towards the Deir Ezzor Military Airport’s southeastern gates, as each attacker attempted to crash their vehicles loaded with heavy explosives into the guard posts; however, the terrorist group’s suicide bombers were unsuccessful in their attempts to reach the designated targets.

According to a military source from the Syrian Arab Army’s 137th Artillery Brigade of the 17th Division, all three vehicles were destroyed by the soldiers protecting the southeastern gates of the Deir Ezzor Military Airport.

The source added that every suicide attack is followed by a wave of ISIS fighters charging the Deir Ezzor Military Airport’s fortifications, despite repeated failures in breaching the frontline defenses of the Syrian Armed Forces.

Yesterday, ISIS conducted a powerful assault on the Deir Ezzor Military Airport’s southeastern gates; however, they were unable to gain any ground along this volatile front after intense firefights with the Syrian Arab Army’s 137th Artillery Brigade and the 104th Airborne Brigade of the Republican Guard.

Several firefights are ongoing between ISIS and the Syrian Armed Forces inside the Deir Ezzor Governorate today, including tense clashes at the Sheikh Yasseen, Al-Kanamat, Al-Rusafa, and Al-Sina’a Quarters of the provincial capital.
