BEIRUT, LEBANON (11:30 A.M.) – The Islamic State’s (ISIS/ISIL/IS/Daesh) sleeper cells carried out their heaviest attack of the year on the U.S.-backed Syrian Democratic Forces’ (SDF) positions at the Al-Umar Oil Field.

Citing local sources, the pro-opposition Syrian Observatory for Human Rights (SOHR) reported that intense clashes took place near the Al-Umar Oil Field and nearby Coalition airport, resulting in several casualties for all parties involved.

The SOHR report said that the Deir Ezzor Military Council branch of the Syrian Democratic Forces suffered four dead and several more injured during the overnight battle.

In addition to the battle at the Al-Umar Oil Field, the U.S.-led Coalition and Syrian Democratic Forces carried out a raid on an Islamic State sleeper cell in eastern Deir Ezzor.

The raid resulted in a series of fierce clashes between the Islamic State and U.S.-Coalition forces, ending in the death of one of the terrorist group’s most influential leaders in the area.

Systematically? Common they are a pale shadow of their former self after US systematically F ked them all in Iraq and these guys tucked their tails & ran into Syria. They are living like RATS & RODENTS in Tunnels in the Syria Iraq border only because it is not guarded and coming out to attack and go back into the tunnel. Ambushing surprise attacks laying IEDs etc may only maim & kill few but the retaliation will be brutal on Daesh.

Next time before commenting about anyone sleeping wake up and know the difference between SAA means Pro Government Official Syrian Arab Army fighting the Jihadis along with NDF & Russian Support and SDF Syrian Democratic Forces mainly Kurds & Arab fighters fighting the ISIS Daesh with Coalition Support mainly US. Read the News Article again and again & understand whom was attacked.
