BEIRUT, LEBANON (9:00 A.M.) – The so-called Islamic State (ISIS) launched a surprise attack against a group of Syrian Arab Army (SAA) troops in the eastern countryside of the Deir Ezzor Governorate yesterday.

ISIS began the assault by storming the Syrian Army’s positions east of Al-Mayadeen; this would result in a series of intense clashes near this imperative city.

According to a military source in Deir Ezzor, the Syrian Army was able to repel the Islamic State’s attack after reinforcements from nearby tribes and the National Defense Forces (NDF) arrived in eastern Al-Mayadeen to drive back the terrorists.

The source added that the Islamic State has recently launched several attacks in eastern Deir Ezzor, prompting the Syrian Army to increase their presence in this part of the province.

Amazing how, with the American “coalition” and all, these ISIS pockets manage not only to survive but to thrive such that they can launch attacks.
And most severely against the Syrian Army, with just token gestures against the American occupation where, as said, they thrive.
How is that?

You beat me to it, ISIS was as good as dead and now they remarkably have thousands of troops – amazing what a couple of UN aid trucks can do !!.

Abu Bakr, what these want to say is that the US forces are providing ISIS protection and support. The IS always thrive near or around US presence. I myself don’t know, but what the other 2 guys think your holy warriors are a creation of the kafir, to slaughter moslems and carry out the infidels work. Would you like to say anything to that?

Any group can be ISIS. They just get out the flags and banners, wash a few Toyota pickups and clean the guns, play their songs, be extreme, and there you have ISIS. Been like that all the time, the same in Libya, Egypt, Afghan, etc.

This ISIS came from the pocket left by SAA not by USDF. It was the big question initially why SAA preserved this darn holey pocket.

Because they arm them, fund them, give them satellite coordinates, move them, like chess pieces from one part of Syria to another, wherever it suits their present purpose. They are a despicable group that uses war and death to their own greedy ends.

The Americans apparently get upset when the Syrian airforce bombs an enemy, even in its own country.

The Yanks have a large contingent in Deir Ezzor with a big base at Al Tanf from where they re-supply and re-equip their pet terrorists particularly the al-Nusra Front, aka al-Qaeda, (remember them, they blew up the Twin Towers and now the spawny septics are in bed with them). They are still really pissed that Bashar al-Assad had the b***s to call in the Russians who sidelined them and who’ve shown the Yanks the way home in removing the rebels. The only effective forces in killing I.S have been Syrian, Russian and Iranian. Poxy Yanks are only in it for… Read more »
