BEIRUT, LEBANON (12:35 P.M.) – The Islamic State (ISIS/ISIL/IS/Daesh) launched a powerful on the Syrian Arab Army’s (SAA) positions inside the Deir Ezzor countryside last night.

Under the cover of night, the Islamic State reportedly hit the Syrian Army’s positions in the Badiyah Al-Mayadeen region; this resulted in a heavy firefight between the two parties.

According to a military source in the Deir Ezzor Governorate, the Syrian Arab Army suffered three casualties during the terrorist attack, while two members of the Islamic State were killed.

The source added that the Islamic State was unable to achieve their main objective, which was to raid the Syrian Army post near the strategic city of Al-Mayadeen.

The Islamic State has carried out several attacks like this in the last few months, prompting the Syrian Arab Army to increase their military presence in the Deir Ezzor and Homs countrysides.

A very true expression of moral support and honor to Papa, Al Qaeda who is in s**t in Idlib.

Since the times of Nebuchadnezzar the desert tribes have raided
the Silk road. Now they have AK’s and Wahaddi Mohammadean
mindsets + Saudi, Jordan, and US sponsors etc etc. Nothing new,
been going on 1,500 plus years. Just new marching orders.

Actually, the sponsors are in Qatar, Turkey and… more in the east lets say in Pakistan or in some neighbouring country of Pakistan… Look at who prevented Masood Azhar from being designated as a global terrorist by UNSC just 4 times, or about who smuggled Zarqawi into Iraq in 2002 while sheltering al-Zawahiri and Hazma bin-Laden… Hazma even got married in this country… There is a little difference between letting terrorists come from everywhere and regroup in a single geographic area you made especially attractive for them while you intend it to be used as a kill-zone than being the… Read more »

Wasn’t your opinion that Iran created ISIS? What changed your mind? (just curious)…

ISIS Attacks SAA in Dei Ezzor ? It looks like terrorists can appear anywhere in Syria just because SAA really does not have total control of Syria land. I though that SAA had total control of Dei Ezzor since long time ago when SAA defeated (?) ISIS there.

ISIS were defeated…but groups of them remain in Homs desert near US Al Tanf base safety…and from time to time they launch attacks vs SAA outpost!…

Actions happen way too far from the al-Tanf area to have them hiding here. They’d need to move for hours with vehicles and so would be spotted by US+Russian+EU+Israeli satellites+drones and get busted.
They’re in hiding VERY close from where they do hit’n’run attacks, unlikely more than 10km.

@Gustavo, SAA & Russians are engaged in Latakia now, they are engaged in Hama, they are engaged in Idlib and they are engaged in Homs, Euphrates, Dier Ezzor and recently in Daraa. Please be fair SAA is not Captain America, Superman, Batman & Robin to be every where at the same time! They are good soldiers who are fighting in too many battle fronts against the Islamic Jihadis and are heavily stretched for so many years of war. They too have to prioritize against the threats and act against them. Islamic Jihadis under what ever name are always looking at… Read more »

14k seem a little exaggerated to me as they’d have a way bigger footprint, but they controlled these areas for several years and had a LOT of time to prepare to stockpile weapons, ammos, water, oil and canned food in the numerous caves of this semi-mountainous areas, so having a few thousands around is not sci-fi.
It will take a long time and numerous personnel to comb it all… You may even have full villages looking like normal ones while only made of ISIS and their families… Then, at night…

DBS, It definitely is a tough task for the Syrian & Iraqi Armed forces to identify the Daesh as many of them have now shaved of their dirty beard and trimmed their dirty smelly hair which wasn’t washed since Abu Bakr’s last sermon. As you rightly said they are now living like normal civilians in various far flung villages and carry out the terror attacks of placing mines IEDs or carrying out hit and run. The armed forces will have to have lot of good ground based intel.

Lamentablemente el ejercito Sirio dejó de expandirse en Badiyah Al-Mayadeen, muchos de los terroristas que salieron de Dei-Ezur están en esta zona…
