BEIRUT, LEBANON (4:35 A.M.) – Besieged ISIS terrorists fighting inside the greater Deir Ezzor city area have conducted a powerful surprise offensive against the Syrian Arab Army.

According to military sources, ISIS forces operating on Saqr Island staged a general offensive against the positions of Syrian Army this morning aimed at driving army troops into the Euprhates River.

The offensive was spearheaded by a tunnel bomb attack after which ISIS militants carried-out an intense storming of Syrian Army Republican Guard positions.

Despite the intensity of the attack, Syrian Army troops were able to quickly recover from the shock of the tunnel bomb detonation and hold their positions during the terrorist onslaught.

In the end, the jihadist offensive failed to break even the first line of army defenses and all ISIS forces managed to achieve in any regard were high casualties among their ranks.

This offensive co-insides with the very recent death of charismatic Syrian Army commander Issam Zahreddine, the top military leader for all pro-government operations in and around the Deir Ezzor city area.

Some Syrian military sources see this ISIS offensive as an attempt by the terrorist group to capitalize on any possible loss in morale suffered by Syrian troops, however if this was the case then it was clearly a miscalculation by the jihadist faction.

After reading the title of the note, it almost gave me a heart attack.
But what a satisfaction to know that at the end, the honorable SAA and allies were up to the challenge, retaining their composure and honor by fusing the evil plans of the ISIS sponsor and kurds maids.
Good attempt to divert the SAA and allies attention from the Omar’s rich oil fields, americans d**n bastards.

The spirit of the good Zahreddine lives on: I am sure he would have been proud of his troops’ fearless resistance against the barbarous Daesh fanatics.
Zahreddine’s example will lead to ultimate Syrian victory.

His lost was a punch for all but Im sure that if the f*****g Isis bastards are expecting the SAA to be low and scary they will burn all the terrorist in h**l.
