BEIRUT, LEBANON (9:10 A.M.) – A group of Syrian Arab Army (SAA) soldiers have gone missing in the desert region near the town of Haribshah in southwestern Deir Ezzor, a military source told Al-Masdar News on Sunday.

According to the source, the Syrian Arab Army soldiers went missing after a group of Islamic State (ISIS/ISIL/IS/Daesh) fighters ambushed them along the road near Haribshah on Sunday morning.

The soldiers were reported missing after some of their comrades were forced to abandon their positions along the road.

When reinforcements arrived at the scene, the soldiers that were left behind were nowhere to be found and later declared missing-in-action (MIA) by their company’s command.

This latest ambush by the Islamic State comes just days after another group of Syrian Arab Army soldiers went missing in eastern Syria under similar circumstances.

Despite U.S. President Donald Trump’s declaration of victory against the Islamic State in late March, the terrorist group still remains active in the vast desert region of central and eastern Syria.

Due to a large number of caves in the Syrian Desert, the Islamic State has been able to evade capture and carve out a stronghold between the provincial borders of Deir Ezzor and Homs.
