The Islamic State of Iraq and Al-Sham (ISIS) has recently concentrated a large amount of their fighters to the Deir Ezzor Governorate’s northwestern front, where they have repeatedly attempted to seize the remaining Syrian Arab Army (SAA) positions outside the provincial capital’s northern districts.

On Tuesday morning inside Deir Ezzor’s northwestern countryside, ISIS launched their 4th assault on the Al-Baghayliyah District in 4 days, striking the Syrian Arab Army’s defensive positions at the Firat Al-Sham Hotel and the Al-Jazeera University near the western bank of the Euphrates River.

However, ISIS was unable to achieve the progress they were hoping for on Tuesday, thanks in large part to the Russian Air Force’s relentless airstrikes on their positions at the Radio Broadcast Tower, the Heart Hospital, ‘Ayyash weapons depot, ‘Ayyash fuel station, Al-Rawad Hill, and the village of ‘Ayyash.

According to a military source from the Syrian Arab Army’s 104th Airborne Brigade of the Republican Guard, ISIS risked hundreds of fighters in a callous attempt to break-through the defenses at the Firat Al-Sham Hotel.

The source stated that these ISIS militants were foolishly running in open territory, while the Syrian Army’s machine guns pounded the terrorists with a barrage of bullets to stop any advance.

ISIS’ casualties could not be counted because most of their corpses were left in the contested areas of Al-Baghayliyah.
