DAMASCUS, SYRIA (2:30 p.m.) – The Islamic State claimed that it captured alive 2 Russian soldiers when the jihadi militants launched a counter-offensive on Syrian Army position along the Sukhna-Deir highway.

The breakthrough occurred when the terror group blitzed al-Shola town located along the road linking Deir Ezzor to al-Sukhnak. Both town have for long served as major ISIS strongholds before driven out by the Syrian forces.

According to preliminary reports obtained by AMN about the assault, ISIS began its offensive by detonating 3 car bombs, thus managing to break through the Syrian Army’ defensives.
Fierce clashes then ensued as the jihadi militants stormed the towns.
The terror organization’s social media account reported that the jihadists captured two Russian servicemen and a Syrian soldier in the surprise assault.
Earlier this week, Russian blamed the United States’ ‘double-faced policy’ for the death of a major Russian general who was killed by ISIS shelling on Syrian government forces in Deir Ezzor.
