DAMASCUS, SYRIA (3:25 P.M.) – Just as the Islamic State’s reign in eastern Syria began to effectively diminish, the terror group launched an all-out counteroffensive on different fronts of the oil-rich province.

Relying on its typical method of attack, the Islamic State detonated 3 VBIEDs in al-Shola town located along the Sukhnah-Deir Ezzor highway, and eventually taking over several parts of town after killing 33 soldiers, including 1 Russian.

Clashes are still ongoing inside al-Shola, according to sources.

The group said that it had captured alive two Russian servicemen and 1 Syrian soldier in the offensive.

Meanwhile in the western bank of the Euphrates, another ISIS suicide bomber blew up its vehicle in an Army garrison, killing 15 Syrian troops.

48 SAA soldiers died – and at least one Russian – heartbreaking. May God comfort and strengthen and provide for their families – and may He greatly assist the SAA and all of its allied forces to quickly exterminate all terrorists in Syria. More blood on the hands of the U.S. – apart from whose help the terrorists would long ago have been removed from Syria. God have mercy on the U.S. and remove such evil vermin as John McCain who push it to continued evil.

Resurrection of ISIS? Is it a miracle? Oh no, these are probably reinforcements that the US has transported from the left bank of Euphrates.
