BEIRUT, LEBANON (5:40 P.M.) – The Islamic State (ISIS/ISIL/IS/Daesh) launched a new attack on the Syrian Arab Army’s (SAA) positions near key border-city of Albukamal in southeast Deir Ezzor.

According to a military source in Damascus, the Islamic State launched more than ten mortar shells towards the Syrian Arab Army’s positions at the town of Khayrat near Albukamal.

The military source said that some of the mortar shells managed to hit the Syrian Arab Army’s positions; however, there were no reported casualties.

The Islamic State’s attack was launched from the eastern bank of the Euphrates River, where they are currently under assault by the U.S.-backed Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF).

El ejercito debería de estar en guardia, no caer en provocaciones para luego enfrascarse con SDF es lo que quiere ISIS.
