DEIR EZZOR, SYRIA (5:00 P.M.) – The Islamic State of Iraq and Al-Sham (ISIS) launched a large-scale offensive inside Deir Ezzor today, targeting the Syrian Arab Army’s defenses at the strategic district of Al-Haweeqa.

ISIS began the offensive by storming the Syrian Arab Army-held portion of Al-Haweeqa; this resulted in a series of intense clashes that are still ongoing at the moment.

According to an Al-Masdar correspondent in Damascus, the Islamic State has not made any significant gains as of yet; however, they have intensified their assault over the last hour by sending in reinforcements to the front-lines.

In response to the Islamic State attack, the Russian Air Force launched several airstrikes over the Deir Ezzor countryside, targeting the terrorist group’s positions at Al-Hamidiyah, Hawija Al-Saqr, Huwlijat Mari’iyah.

Great care should be taken in east-Syria soon : it seems that 9000 daeshbags may be move from Mossul to Syria soon in order to make both Deir-Ezzor and Palmyra fall.
