BEIRUT, LEBANON (8:50 A.M.) – Following the Syrian Arab Army’s traversing to the eastern bank of the Euphrates River in Deir Ezzor Governorate yesterday,  ISIS forces have since launched a series of fanatic counterattacks aimed at driving government troops back across the river.

Over the last 18 hours, ISIS has thrown shock troops, suicide bombers and artillery against the Syrian Army bridgehead. Endless probing attacks have been launched aimed at finding a weak point in the army’s perimeter.

According to sources, ISIS has conducted at least 3 suicide attacks, two of them involving native Syrian fighters and one involving a foreigner from Turkestan.

Furthermore, in what is either one of the three previously mentioned suicide attacks or part of a forth suicide attack, ISIS reportedly hurled a car bomb Syrian Army positions near the village of Merat, following up the attack with an infantry push to try and take the village. Heavy clashes have resulted.

In order to preserve its new foothold on the eastern bank of the Euphrates and buy time for troop reinforcements and heavy equipment to land, Syrian Army forces will require round-the-clock Russian airstrikes to constantly suppress all ISIS counterattacks that are launched against the highly-vulnerable bridgehead in the meantime.

The Eastern banks of Deir Ezzur are a do or die afair for the Syrian government forces for the preservation of the Syian state. The Syrian government forces need to concentrate most of its troops on this axis while keeping a watchful eye on other axis. It is bvious that the Syrian government forces are facing a joint SDF (rebranded ISIS and vice versa according to convenience) and their colonial Zio/Nazi US Kurdish slaves. Russia needs to show its effectiveness a a force against the illegal colonial invasion forces and their Kurdish slaves.
