BEIRUT, LEBANON (1:20 P.M.) – The Islamic State (ISIS) launched a surprise offensive in the Deir Ezzor Governorate last night, targeting several areas controlled by the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) and US-backed Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF).

ISIS began their assault last night when they stormed the defenses of the SAA and SDF near the strategic border-city of Albkamal.

According to a field report from Deir Ezzor, ISIS attacked the SDF’s positions near the Al-‘Umar Oil Fields; this was their attempt to retake this area.

Following their attack on the SDF’s positions, the Islamic State struck the Syrian Arab Army’s defenses in the Sabikhan Badiya area, which is located just west of Albukamal.

The clashes in east Deir Ezzor stopped this morning after the Islamic State seized several points from both forces.

ISIS is now working to secure their gains, while awaiting a counter-offensive from both the SDF and SAA.

Truly indeed you are loser scum of the earth. The mujahideen never lose whether they kill the enemies of Allah and attain victory or are martyred on the battlefield. Either way Mujahideen are always victorious. All praise and thanks be to Allah.

Isis ya no está en condiciones de retomar espacios, su objetivo es infligir pérdidas al ejercito Sirio, esto beneficia a otros grupos terroristas.
