Moments ago in the provincial capital of the Deir Ezzor Governorate, the Islamic State of Iraq and Al-Sham (ISIS) launched a powerful assault on the Deir Ezzor Military Airport after struggling to advance at the 137th Artillery Brigade’s headquarters outside the city’s walls.

ISIS struck the Syrian Arab Army’s (SAA) defensive positions from two different axes in order to spread out the pro-government forces and weaken their defenses.

The first axis the ISIS terrorists attacked this morning was at the village of Al-Jafra, which is situated at the southeastern perimeter of the Deir Ezzor Military Airport.

According to a military source from the Syrian Arab Army’s 104th Airborne Brigade of the Republican Guard, the ISIS terrorists also attempted to advance from the southern flank of the airport, recapturing the missile battalion base that sits just south of the base’s gates.

Despite the large assault, there have been no reported advances by ISIS as of yet – the missile battalion base that was recaptured by the terrorist group was vacant, with no sign of the Syrian Armed Forces there.

The Deir Ezzor Military Airport has  been attacked on a number of occasions by ISIS; however, this appears to be one of their largest attacks since December 2014.

Mi 28’s would solve this problem in a hurry if used properly. Russia should use them or provide them to be used. Can you Imagine what Apaches , A 10’s and Spectre gunships would do here ? It would be over in a matter of hours. Pity is that America won’t help kill terrorists , only help them.

Leith, I think the Turkish moves at border with Syria should be given more attention, is Erdogan going to invade Syria’s Norhhern region? what Russian response will be? what Syria is going to do? I think that is the strategic move we should observe, you have reported Yesterday theTurks are deploying minesweepers that could be prelude to invasion, After Iranian nuclear , it seems the Turks are prepared to move as the Saudis did last year in Yemen, Syria have complianed to the UN last week, but is not enough, I would suggest Syrian government to make clear public warning… Read more »
