BEIRUT, LEBANON (12:55 P.M.) – On Wednesday morning, the Islamic State launched another powerful attack in the Deir Ezzor Governorate, targeting the Syrian Arab Army’s (SAA) defenses at the Panorama area and Harabish District of the provincial capital.

Under heavy bombardment by the Russian Air Force, the Islamic State attempted to seize more territory north of the Deir Ezzor Military Airport in order to completely besiege this installation.

Despite sending several waves of combatants towards the Syrian Arab Army’s defenses, the Islamic State was unable to make any important gains near the Panorama Roundabout or Harabish District thus far.

According to a military source in Damascus, the Syrian Arab Army in Deir Ezzor has managed to push back all Islamic State militants in the Harabish District, but they are still under heavy assault in the Panorama area.

The Syrian Arab Army attempted to reverse the Islamic State’s gains north of the military airport yesterday; however, they were ultimately repelled after a long battle at night.

IS reported having captured the electrical installation on worker’s hill, and advanced at Port Said street. ruasf HAS to start striking enemy forward positions. Using Kh-25M and KAB-250 laser guided munitions can be placed withing 3 to 5 meters of target.
Nothing will help SAA and their morale more than seeing the enemy nearest to them go sky high.

No, you obviously understand nothing about SAA’s military philosophy … it will be much more glorious for them to recapture the airport about 6 times over as many years after IS have repeatedly overrun it, like the triumph of Palmyra.

Blitz : It’d be much better to have some AC-130 like gunship or some coin aircraft with 30mm belly turret and (guided) rocket pods as, actually, 250kg guided bombs and missiles with 90-140kg explosives are not rally great for CAS (close air support), hey, a 120mm 12-15kg mortar shell can already kill you @75m from the explosion (if in an airburst mode) so whatabout 100-250kg warheads! Most of combat takes place 100-200m range! In many cases in Iraq, our Rafales and Mirage-2000s prefered to avoid using missiles for air support and take the risk to do old school cannon-runs although… Read more »

Are there any good casualty figures for both sides at this point? In these battles, which side is losing more men?
