The Islamic State of Iraq and Al-Sham (ISIS) launched another assault to capture the Dumayr Military Airport in the eastern Damascus countryside on Wednesday, targeting several checkpoints around this strategic military installation located inside Jabal Qalamoun.

ISIS began the assault by launching a VBIED (vehicle borne improvised explosive device) at a checkpoint outside the Dumayr Military Airport; however, this terrorist attack was repelled before it could reach its intended destination.

Following the failed terrorist attack, ISIS stormed the checkpoints outside the Dumayr Military Airport, where they were confronted by a large contingent of soldiers from the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) and National Defense Forces (NDF).

The large-scale assault by the terrorist group at the Dumayr Military Airport in Greater Damascus would be repelled after a two hour long battle that ended in a high casualty count for ISIS.

Recently, ISIS launched a massive offensive at the eastern slopes of the Qalamoun Mountains in order to counter the Syrian Arab Army’s successful campaigns at Palmyra and Quraytayn.

Et tant qu’on y est des Rafales et des F22 😉 Z’avaient récupéré 2 vieux Mig-21 en état de vol saisis lors de la prise de je ne sais plus quelle base. Ils ont réussi à les faire voler, peur être grâce à quelque ex pilote de Saddam mais pas longtemps, ça n’a pas du atteindre la demi heure avant ou que ça se fasse moucher ou que ça se crashe… Le reportage sur leur prise remonte bien à 12/18 mois, ils s’imaginaient déjà aller bombarder Moscou… M’ont bien fait rire en sortant ça, tout comme cette histoire de Mirage… Read more »

It seems like ISIS is far from being defeated yet. They have started using the same strategy as SAA. It’s obvious American special forces are behind it.
