BEIRUT, LEBANON (9:10 A.M.) – The Islamic State (ISIS/ISIL/IS/Daesh) has seized new ground in the eastern region of Syria after launching a powerful attack against the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) troops along the Deir Ezzor-Homs axis.

According to reports from this front, the Islamic State began their assault by storming a Syrian Army garrison in the Al-Shoula area that is located between Deir Ezzor city and the desert town of Al-Sukhnah.

The field reports said the Islamic State terrorists managed to capture several points near the town of Al-Shoula, marking the first time in several months that they have captured new ground in eastern Syria.

A source from the Syrian Arab Army told Al-Masdar over the weekend that the Islamic State has recently increased their activities in the Badiya Al-Sham region of Syria, prompting the Syrian and Russian air forces to get involved.

This has also been the case in northwestern Iraq, where the Islamic State elements have been involved in a number of fierce clashes with the Iraqi Armed Forces and the Popular Mobilization Units (Hashd Al-Sha’abi).

ISIS has used the vast desert region between Syria and Iraq to hideout after their defeats in 2017 and 2018; they have used this territory to regroup and rebuild their forces.

En la nota faltaría terminar con: “con la ayuda de los EE. UU.”

Do a better job of verifying such stories Al-masdr, no other sites whether in alternative or MSM news confirms what this article claims. You make yourself sound like propaganda piece for ISIS with fake article like this, also ban daeshsux from the comments.

Almasdar is pro Assad and shia ruled news even they can’t lie so you should admit your defeats and finally realize that you or anyone won’t ever defeat Isis

Shame of Russia-SAA forces. I do not believe that Russia intelligence is SO BAD that it can not detect ahead of time these terrorists. Of course, USA is helping terrorists in Syria. So, what ? The point is that Russia-SAA has not been able to finish with these terrorists yet.
