DAMASCUS, SYRIA (5: 05 P.M.) – The Islamic State militant attacked the Syrian Army positions in the eastern city of Deir Ezzor after the group lost its bastion of al-Sukhnah in the eastern countryside of Homs.

The attack began from the ISIS-held district of al-Baghiliyah and targeted the Army’s outposts near al-Rawad hill which overlooks Division 17 base located to the northwest of the city.

Fierce clashes then ensued as a result of the attack, which was eventually repelled as the Syrian fighter jets bombed ISIS reinforcements, destroying two MLRs launchers and several machinegun-fitted trucks.

According to a military source, scores of ISIS have been killed and wounded in the failed assault.

The territories controlled by the terror group are steadily shrinking as the Syrian government forces managed to recapture al-Sukhnah town which serves as the last defense line before the Syrian troops reach the embattled city of Deir Ezzor.

These are not hard and fast rules, merely guidelines to aid the human judgment of our community and keep this a clean and well-lighted place for civilized public discourse.

Improve the Discussion

Help us make this a great place for discussion by always working to improve the discussion in some way, however small. If you are not sure your post adds to the conversation, think over what you want to say and try again later.

The topics discussed here matter to us, and we want you to act as if they matter to you, too. Be respectful of the topics and the people discussing them, even if you disagree with some of what is being said.

Be Agreeable, Even When You Disagree

You may wish to respond to something by disagreeing with it. That’s fine. But remember to criticize ideas, not people. Please avoid:

  • Name-calling
  • Ad hominem attacks
  • Responding to a post’s tone instead of its actual content
  • Knee-jerk contradiction

Instead, provide reasoned counter-arguments that improve the conversation.
