The Islamic State of Iraq and Al-Sham (ISIS) launched another powerful assault at the Harabish District of Deir Ezzor, targeting the Syrian Arab Army’s defenses along the large patch of farms that border the western bank of the Euphrates River.

ISIS began the assault by utilizing fishing boats to land at the western bank; this was followed by intense fighting at the Harabish Farms, where the terrorist forces attempted to push west in order to reach the educational sector.

Luckily, the Syrian Arab Army’s 104th Airborne Brigade of the Republican Guard – backed by the National Defense Forces (NDF) – were able to push back ISIS, killing a confirmed 13 enemy combatants before the terrorist group retreated across the river to Sakr Island.

In addition to their assault on Harabish Farms, ISIS also targeted the Al-Baghayliyah District in northern Deir Ezzor on Tuesday, striking the Syrian Arab Army’s defenses at Tal Al-Rawad.

Once again, ISIS was unable to achieve any success as the Syrian Arab Army’s defenses held tough against the terrorist onslaught.
