BEIRUT, LEBANON (6:50 A.M.) – The Islamic State (ISIL) forces in the eastern countryside of the Homs Governorate launched a powerful offensive this morning, a local military source informed Al-Masdar.

Capitalizing on the U.S. missile strikes, the Islamic State stormed the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) checkpoints near the strategic town of Al-Furqalas.

According to local sources, the Islamic State has yet to make any gains near Al-Fuqalas, but without necessary air support, the situation could worsen in the coming hours.

The Shayrat Military Airport is one of the Syrian Air Force’s most important installations in the fight against the Islamic State due to its proximity to the Palmyra and Deir Ezzor fronts.

Does ISIL have air force? No. Why would be than difficult to defend position without air force? Only reason that I could think off would be if you don’t know how to fight

Trump better catch a wake up because the EU, Turkey and evil saudis might be happy, but those who vote for him and support him, are not happy with him at all and he should not think that we will not turn on him.
