BEIRUT, LEBANON (2:19 P.M.) – Following the break-out of ISIS from almost certain doom in rural Hama, forces of the terrorist group – fighting their way west towards southeast Idlib – have now come into contact with rebel groups who, taken aback by the sudden assault, are currently in a state of panic.

On Friday morning, many hundreds of Islamic State militants trapped in town of Suruj in Hama province conducted a desperate break-out assault west of the stronghold.

Sources within ISIS – as quoted by EMN News – note that dozens of Syrian troops were killed in the sudden assault which was spearheaded by a number of car bomb attacks.

After several hours, Islamic State terrorists reached rebel lines in southeast Idlib province at the towns of Umm Khalakhil and Ard az-Zuzur according to opposition sources. Following this, local rebel forces descended into a state of panic.

In response to the attack, all available rebel fighters from the Free Syrian Army and Ha’yat Tahrir al-Sham (formerly Jabhat al-Nusra, the Syrian branch of Al-Qaeda) in the area have mustered an emergency defensive action and are currently shelling advancing ISIS militants with mortars, howitzers and 23-mm cannons. Reinforcements are undoubtedly flooding towards southeast Idlib at the present time.

May have SAA just let ’em pass through in order to have “rebels” and remains of IS pocket clashing, so SAA minimises losses while roaches on two sides kill each other???

That’s a good tactic. The SAA allows a corridor for ISIS terrorists to flee and attack foreign backed rebel groups. That’s efficiency

God should pack all jihadists into helicopters and then drop them on Tel Aviv and NYC.
