For the 3rd straight day, the Islamic State of Iraq and Al-Sham (ISIS) has attempted to breach the Syrian Arab Army’s frontline defenses at Regiment 137 base; however, they were forestalled at the minefield that is located adjacent to the military base, resulting in the death of a number of militants from ISIS.

According to a military source in Deir Ezzor, the Regiment 137 base is completely secure and is not in any danger, despite reports from ISIS social media activists claiming they have infiltrated the SAA’s defenses. The source also added that the minefields have obstructed a number of ISIS vehicles from infiltrating any military checkpoints on the way to the base.

The Syrian Arab Army’s 104th Airborne Brigade of the Republican Guard (Al-Harss Al-Jamhouri) has encircled Radio Mountain (Jabal Al-Jaheef) in the imperative village of ‘Ayyash, after a brief ISIS offensive that the SAA would later counter on Monday morning. The 104th Brigade’s counter-attack is geared at capturing the ISIS weapons depot at Jabal Al-Jaheef, while also reestablishing complete security of the Al-Raqqa-‘Ayyash Road.

At Sakr Island (Haweeja Sakr), the 104th Brigade continued their success in the 2nd and 3rd Districts, killing scores of militants from ISIS and capturing another 57mm Anti-Aircraft Machine Gun near Central Park. Among the dead ISIS militants at Sakr Island, these 4 were identified: Baraa’ Abu Hamza (Tunisian), Ahmad ‘Ammaar Al-Abboud, ‘Abdel-Razzaaq Sobhi, and Khalil Hassan Al-Jassim.

29 soldiers from the 104th Airborne Brigade were killed at Sakr Island in the month of December – they have been identified as the following:
