BEIRUT, LEBANON (10:00 A.M.) – The Islamic State (ISIL) launched a new attack in the Deir Ezzor Governorate that targeted the Syrian Arab Army’s (SAA) positions around the strategic military airport.

ISIL began their assault by storming the Syrian Arab Army’s defenses at the small mountain of Jabal Harabish, which is located just north of the Deir Ezzor Military Airport.

Following a short battle on Friday morning, the Islamic State managed to capture two points inside Jabal Harabish, forcing the Syrian Arab Army to tighten their defenses around the mountaintop.

According to a military source in Deir Ezzor, the Islamic State is now storming the Syrian Arab Army’s final positions at Jabal Harabish, as the latter calls on reinforcements to help drive back the terrorists.

I wish one day that ISIS/Daesh, FSA and all these other groups will finally be called what they are, they are a mercenary army owned by the CIA and Mossad.
Look up the Oded Yinon Plan and Wolfowitz Doctrine.
