On Thursday morning in eastern Deir Ezzor, local tribal fighters carried out a powerful assault on the Islamic State of Iraq and Al-Sham’s (ISIS) positions at their main headquarters inside the city of Albukamal near the Iraqi border-crossing into the Al-‘Anbar Governorate.

According to government sources that remain in contact with the Sheitat Tribesmen, the tribal fighters established full control over the ‘Aisha National Hospital after a violent battle with the ISIS terrorists who converted this medical facility into a military base.

The source added that the local tribal fighters also carried out several attacks around the ‘Aisha Hospital’s large neighborhoods, while Russian fighter jets provided the necessary back-up to crush ISIS’ resistance against the Deir Ezzor popular committees inside the city of Albukamal.

Syrian state media reported that the tribal fighters raised the flag of the Syrian Arab Republic; however, no footage or photos have been released from the hospital to confirm this news.

Looking at the picture I say that they will die because of their stupidity to walk side by side so that a child can kill them all quick.
