BEIRUT, LEBANON (4:20 P.M.) – The last few days have been tough for elite Syrian Army troops battling it out against ISIS terrorists on the western shore of the Euphrates River in southwest Deir Ezzor province.

The last several days have seen Islamic State militants launch a powerful counter-offensive against the Syrian Army’s elite Tiger forces at the towns of Al-Qurayya and Al-Asharah,  inflicting notable losses on Syrian ranks after a wave of car bomb attacks and allowing the terrorist group to remain in control of both settlements.

However, the Tiger Forces struck back hard today, attacking ISIS defenses at the town of Quraybi to the south of Al-Asharah.

Capitalizing on the devastation delivered unto ISIS by seemingly endless air raids conducted by Russian heavy bombers along the western Euphrates shore, the Tiger Forces managed to liberate Quraybi.

Quraybi’s liberation is important for the Syrian Army. The town is to be used as a launching pad for further operations by the Tiger Forces aimed at surrounding Al-Asharah where ISIS resistance has proven to be particularly fierce over the last week.

ISIS probably have a comprehensive bunker network to survive the attacks by Russian bombers. Hopefully they will become their tombs.
