The Islamic State of Iraq and Al-Sham (ISIS) has been relentless inside the Deir Ezzor Governorate these past few weeks, launching several attacks on the Syrian Arab Army’s positions in both the provincial capital and along the western bank of the Euphrates River.

On Monday and Tuesday, ISIS conducted a large-scale offensive inside the provincial capital once again, targeting the Al-Rashidiyah, Al-Jubeileh, Al-Hamadiyah, and Al-Haweeqa Districts that are under the control of the Syrian Arab Army and their allies.

According to a military source from the Syrian Arab Army’s 104th Airborne Brigade of the Republican Guard, ISIS was confronted by a large contingent from the Syrian Armed Forces at the Faculty of Arts neighborhood and the Cinema Fouad-Hassan Ataha Street axis in the Al-Rashidiyah District.

Despite ISIS’ powerful assault to begin the day, the aforementioned terrorist group was unable to make any gains inside the provincial capital; instead, they were forced to retreat from Hassan Ataha Street towards the Sheikh Yasseen District after a violent battle with the Syrian Arab Army’s 104th Airborne Brigade.

The military source further added that the Syrian Armed Forces killed well over 40 enemy combatants in the last 48 hours, including a number of terrorists from Chechnya, Pakistan, Morocco, and Tunisia.
