BEIRUT, LEBANON (11:20 A.M.) – The Islamic State (ISIS/ISIL/IS/Daesh) carried out a big overnight attack on the Syrian Arab Army’s (SAA) positions near the key border city of Albukamal in eastern Deir Ezzor.

ISIS reportedly began the assault last night by storming points under the control of the Syrian Arab Army in the Albukamal countryside.

According to a military source near the scene of the battle, the Syrian Army was able to fend off the Islamic State assault, but they suffered at least ten casualties as a result of the clashes.

Furthermore, another Islamic State ambush against the Syrian Arab Army was reported this morning in the Al-Mayadeen countryside.

The reports said over five Syrian Army soldiers and Islamic State fighters were killed during the fierce encounter in the desert region near Al-Mayadeen city.

Despite U.S. President Donald Trump’s claim that the Islamic State had been defeated in Syria and Iraq, the terrorist group continues to wreak havoc inside both countries, while also reemerging in several other nations, including Libya.

As I predicted earlier, the lack of serious effort by SAA, or maybe its inability, gives IS the possibility to regroup in the Badiya in strength. Attacks on Mayadeen and Al Bukamal were next on the list and they will increase.

If IS takes them, SDF will have no option but to cross the river and drive IS out. Necessitated by preemptive selfdefense. Next then will be to link up with Al Tanf, which will be wholeheartedly supported by the US.

you don’t really think that’s true do u…..you don’t think some superpower such as usa,,,, supports and gives bits of advice to isis…and do you think that Muslim extremist will ever not be on the run living in caves to hide for the next 50 years…your not stronger now your weaker,,,and unless some country needs them…this extremism will end….the majority of Muslims don’t think they’re going to kill someone for a different religious beleif…just extremist…and their numbers after 3 wars…has to dwindle,,,their losing more bodies than their adversary….

There is nothing to LOL about this news unless you have a sick mind. These soldiers from SAA / SDF are doing their duty. If you are staying in your own country where ever you are staying the borders are guarded by the soldiers of your country for your safety to keep away the Jihadis / terrorists and if these Daesh come into your country by breaching the army then you will know who they are. Look at what they did to most of Iraq & many parts of Syria and in Afghanistan, Libya, Yemen and other countries. They will… Read more »

In 2015 SAA & Government of President Assad just controlled 1/4th of Syria after the civil war started in 2013. There are 14 governates in Syria, most were under control of various Militants & Terrorists apart from Daesh. Among these terrorists they tore apart this beautiful rich moderate country which once flourished. Sectarian violence started. Western countries, Gulf Monarchs along with Zionists wanted Regime change in Syria. It looked like Syria would lose the war which was thrust upon it from external forces. President Assad had ultimately only 1 choice to make & he just did that. He sought help… Read more »

In fact, you’re wrong : the Zionists never called for regime change! You won’t find a single case where Bibi said “Assad must go”. In fact, Israelis even ended with a serious spat with the Obongo admin and threatened to directly intervene to suppress Daesh/Nusra etc, would this mess went ahead. They ABSOLUTELY gave the green light for Russian intervention, this is an open secret, so it is one that Aman+Mossad had huge intelligence relayed to SAA with GRU as middle-man. Even the late Meir Dagan (Mossad boss, and the biggest user of Kidon ever) made it clear : from… Read more »

DBS, your arguments fail on few areas. Active support given to FSA terrorists in the garb of moderate militants fighting against Assad Regime, so I hope they werent playing Chess with SAA. Next the Daesh were just a how shall we say p**s throw away from IDF Border fence and these OLA UBER guys never even lobbed a granade at IDF nor took any pot shots using their snipers so all was honky dory goody goody between the IDF & Daesh, you don’t fock around with us and we will live you to stay at this place very next to… Read more »

I am glad you think SDF soldiers are doing their duty. They are the true syrians here. Fighting for a better Syria with no room for petty family dictators.
