The Islamic State of Iraq and Al-Sham (ISIS) is not quite ready to end their massive offensive in the Deir Ezzor Governorate’s northwestern countryside; instead, they have decided to push further south along the vast Euphrates River, where the Syrian Arab Army’s (SAA) 137th and 104th brigades are currently positioned inside the provincial capital.

On Monday afternoon, a large force of ISIS fighters stormed the Syrian Arab Army’s frontline positions at Al-Jazeera University, Al-Firat Hotel, and the Al-Rawad Hill, striking from several flanks in order to find a weakness around their defenses in the Al-Baghayliyah District’s southern sector.

Per usual, ISIS sent two suicide bombers towards the Syrian Arab Army’s defenses near Al-Jazeera University; however, the suicide bomber was killed well-before he could reach his intended targeted at the school’s northeastern flank.

Following a violent battle that lasted for nearly 6 hours on Monday night, the ISIS terrorists were finally repelled inside the Al-Baghayliyah District’s southern sector after the Syrian Armed Forces and their Russian allies repulsed each infiltration attempt, leaving several terrorists killed in the process.

As of Monday, ISIS has now launched three consecutive attacks on the Al-Baghayliyah District’s southern sector, despite the fact that they have repelled every time.
