BEIRUT, LEBANON (6:15 A.M.) – The so-called Islamic State (ISIL) launched a large-scale counter-assault in the Jubb Al-Jarrah District of east Homs last night, targeting the Syrian Arab Army’s (SAA) positions at the village of Abu Al-Tababir.

ISIL’s powerful attack would ultimately pay off as their forces overran the Syrian Army’s positions, forcing them to withdraw to a nearby town in order to regroup.

According to the terrorist group’s media wing, their forces were able to penetrate the Syrian Army’s front-lines at Abu Al-Tababir following a successful suicide bombing by one of their Uzbek militants.

The terrorist group’s media wing further claimed that at least 20 Syrian Army soldiers were killed and one tank destroyed during their assault.

A Syrian military source in Palmyra told Al-Masdar News last night that the Islamic State’s figures were exaggerated and that the Syrian Army is already mounting a counter-attack to retake the village.

Tiger Forces tactics is to make ditches against VBIED asap on taking a position.
The ditches are hard to see and many VBIED are captured, very few succeed. But the troops fighting the pocket now are regular SAA and maybe don’t have the equipment
