The Islamic State of Iraq and Al-Sham (ISIS) launched a large-scale offensive in the eastern countryside of Greater Damascus last night, targeting the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) controlled Regiment 16 Base near the mountainous village of Dumayr.

However, the major offensive did not work out well for the ISIS terrorists; instead, they suffered a high number of casualties during the assault on Regiment 16, including the loss of their top emir (leader) in the Qalamoun Mountains.

According to a military source in Damascus City, the top emir for ISIS in the Qalamoun Mountains “Ibrahim Tala’yat” was among the many casualties for the terrorist group that was reportedly killed by the Syrian Arab Army last night at the Regiment 16 Base.

In addition to killing several ISIS terrorists, the Syrian Arab Army regained control of the Sara’ Checkpoint after a long battle last night.

The entire ISIS offensive has been foiled and the aforementioned terrorist group has retreated to the Dumayr area, where they are currently involved in their own battle with Jaysh Al-Islam (Army of Islam).
