BEIRUT, LEBANON (9:50 A.M.) – The Islamic State (ISIS) launched a major counter-offensive, overnight, in the eastern countryside of the Sweida Governorate, a Syrian military source told Al-Masdar News this morning.

According to the military source, the Islamic State stormed the Syrian Arab Army’s positions at the southwestern axis of the Al-Safa Mountain; this would result in a fierce battle that is still ongoing at the moment.

The source said that the Islamic State managed to drive back the Syrian Arab Army troops from several points they liberated on Friday.

In addition to driving back government forces, the Islamic State also killed and wounded more than 40 members from the Syrian Arab Army and National Defense Forces (NDF).

While ISIS lost more than 30 fighters during the previous battle, they were able to regroup and restore several crucial points they lost to the Syrian Arab Ary.

Intense clashes are now ongoing between the Syrian Arab Army and Islamic State at the southwestern and northeastern axes of the Al-Safa Mountain.

I am not sure about this since with the huge Israel-USA-NATO support, these terrorists were capable to store huge amount of food, water, and weapons.

Look at all these idiots believing the West is behind ISIS.
I, Erdogan of the Moslem Brotherhood, created al-Nusra while my friend Khamenei created ISIS, so we can cut secular Syria and Iraq each in two, then north/west well belong to Ottoman Empire and be ruled by al-Qaeda and the rest will be led by IRGC.
Prepare to live under Sharia, you vile kâfir!
