DAMASCO, SIRIA. El Estado Islámico ha lanzado una contraofensiva contra posiciones del Ejército sirio en el este de Homs, días después de perder su bastión en Al Sukhnah.

El ataque, dirigido hacia fuerzas gubernamentales en Hamimah y sus alrededores, y la estación de bombeo P-3, pretende rodear a las tropas estacionadas en el frente y cortar la línea de abastecimiento hacia Al Sukhnah.

El grupo terrorista inició el asalto enviando un coche con explosivos en medio de fuertes tiroteos, lo que permitió al terrorista suicida llegar hasta la guarnición del Ejército.

El ataque suicida ha acabado con la vida de varios soldados, incluido un veterano oficial del Ejército.

Según fuentes militares, los enfrentamientos continúan, con la defensa de las tropas gubernamentales frente al ataque.

Esta ofensiva sorpresa es interpretada como el intento por parte de ISIS de frenar el avance de las fuerzas gubernamentales hacia Deir Ezzor, feudo del grupo terrorista.
