Deir Ezzor, Syria (1:15 P.M.) – The Islamic State of Iraq and Al-Sham (ISIS) launched a new offensive in the Deir Ezzor Governorate on Monday, targeting the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) controlled Industrial District inside the provincial capital.

ISIS began their assault by launching a VBIED (vehicle borne improvised explosive device) towards the Syrian Arab Army’s frontline defenses; this terrorist attack would be foiled before it could reach its intended destination.

Following the failed terrorist attack, ISIS stormed the Industrial District from their positions at Sakr Island, resulting in a fierce series of clashes that are still ongoing near the Euphrates River.

To obstruct the Islamic State’s supply route, the Syrian Air Force has begun launching airstrikes over Saqr Island, targeting the northwestern dock and the small boats used to resupply the terrorist fighters in the Industrial District.

Gatlings may be very appreciated for swarms they always do. in fact, a 30mm gatling would tear VBIEDs in pieces as surely as an ATGM
