Moments ago in the Deir Ezzor Governorate’s southwestern countryside, the Islamic State of Iraq and Al-Sham (ISIS) launched its 5th assault on the 137th Artillery Brigade’s headquarters near Jabal Al-Thurdeh after the previous attempts to seize this large base were repelled by the Syrian Arab Army’s 137th Brigade of the 17th Reserve Division.

The attack began around 10 A.M. (Damascus Time) when the ISIS terrorist stormed both the western and northern flanks of the 137th Brigade’s HQ; this attempted advance by the terrorist group was immediately met by fierce resistance from the Syrian Arab Army soldiers protecting this strategic base near the Deir Ezzor Military Airport.

Yesterday, ISIS declared control over the Missile Battalion Base at the southern perimeter of the Deir Ezzor Military Airport; however, this morning, several reports from the soldiers at the airbase revealed that the terrorist group was unable to maintain their ground as a result of the powerful Russian and Syrian airstrikes around the villages of Jafra and Al-Muri’iyah.

Currently, ISIS is attempting to recapture the village of Al-Baghayliyah; however, they have been unable to advance past the northern checkpoint inside the district.

Clashes are still ongoing between the Syrian Arab Army’s 104th Airborne Brigade and ISIS near the Radio Broadcast Tower in the Al-Baghayliyah District.

We are going to have to invent a new word to use as an extreme term for bravery, to describe the deeds of the Syrian Arab Army’s soldiers. Mere ‘hero’ is not adequate.

I agree Ron…these guys have gone above and beyond the call of duty. They are surrounded by Daesh, and yet still they soldier on and continue to fight, your right ‘Brave’ does not even begin to describe what these guys are, fighting this scum. The SAA have had tremendous losses, far out numbering, according to other sources what have ISIS have lost. Maybe they should decide to withdraw from this area, as it’s beginning to look like a suicide mission. Even with the help of the Russian air force they are being massacred by all other reports on the situation
