BEIRUT, LEBANON (11:30 P.M.) –  The Islamic State (ISIS) launched a big assault in the eastern countryside of Deir Ezzor, tonight, targeting oil fields controlled by the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF).

According to reports from Deir Ezzor, ISIS attacked the SDF-held oil fields in the Hurayji area in an apparent hit and run style assault.

The Islamic State attack resulted in the death of more than ten fighters from the Syrian Democratic Forces, but no captured territory as the terrorist forces retreated from the area shortly after the assault.

Furthermore, the Islamic State fighters managed to seize a large cache of weapons from the SDF prior to their withdrawal from the area.

The Islamic State has recently been launching these types of attacks against the SDF and Syrian Arab Army (SAA) in a bid to inflict heavy damage on their defenses in the Euphrates River Valley.

These attacks have proven effective for the most part, as the Syrian Arab Army and SDF have been forced to send reinforcements to these fronts in order to avoid having ISIS seize any ground.

Ridiculous! Grow up : ISIS only serves Khamenei interests… Hey, his $95bln business venture now controls 17% of Iraq’s economy. When IRGC’s Quds-Force smuggled Zarqawi (ISIS founder) in Iraq, Khamenei controlled 0%…
Look, where is the Iraqi Ba’athist resistance now? they’re all gone! Al-Douri hides very likely in KSA or Bahrain…

” the Islamic State fighters managed to seize a large cache of weapons from the SDF prior to their withdrawal from the area.”

In other words it was a US resupply operation to their secret pals in ISIS 🙂

Oh, Na’al ‘dine allah!
Moreover, it smells Amaq BS announcement the same way an opened septic tank smells.
In the last week here, OIR did 18 strikes… Same week last year? 404!
Call your roach-bros there and tell ’em to prepare taking possession of a herd of 72 virgin goats and not forget to take boots for the goats’ forward legs or goats may escape while ISIS zombies will shag’em
