BEIRUT, LEBANON (9:00 A.M.) – The Islamic State (ISIS) launched a surprise attack in the northern countryside of the Al-Sweida Governorate last night, which targeted the Syrian Arab Army’s (SAA) positions near the Khalkhalah Airport.

According to the pro-government National Defense Forces (NDF), the Islamic State terrorists attempted to infiltrate the Syrian Army’s positions to the south of Khalkhalah Airport after entering the area from the Badiya Al-Sham region.

However, despite surprising the Syrian Arab Army near Khalkhalah Airport, the Islamic State terrorists were ultimately unable to reach this strategic installation after several hours of fighting.

The Islamic State does not often launch attacks in this area, but due to their recent string of losses in southwest Syria, the terrorist group has become desperate to expand their presence inside the country.

In addition to launching an attack near the Khalkhalah Airport, the Islamic State also attempted to advance near the Safa Canyon in the northeastern part of the province.

Intense clashes are still ongoing in northeast Al-Sweida, as the Islamic State attempts to recapture several areas they lost in June.

These so call victories of the Saa are nothing but a trial and a test for any mujahid in Syria that fights to make the word of Allah supreme. These so call victories also cause Saa and those who support them to furthermore dwell into there fallacy of life as infidels. Needless to say there will never cease to remain a faction from the Ummah (Nation) of The Messenger of Allah (pbuh) fighting upon the command of Allah subjugating his enemies until Judgement Day whether you like it or not.

I can tell by your comment that you are truly indeed human filth and the scum of the earth. Your misunderstanding and misconceptions of my (Deen) religion is not surprising. I won’t waste any time with you about this beautiful way of life for it would be like throwing pearls and jewels to swine. You are definitely indeed lower than the swine and you don’t even realize it.
