On Friday morning, the Islamic State of Iraq and Al-Sham (ISIS) launched another powerful assault on the Kuweires Military Airbase, targeting the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) and National Defense Forces’ frontline positions at the southern and western perimeters of base.

The terrorist group’s assault began around 9:30 A.M. (Damascus Time) on Friday, when an ISIS suicide bomber attempted to detonate his vehicle borne improvised explosive device (VBIED) – via his BMP – into the Kuweires Military Airbase’s southern guard post.

However, as the ISIS suicide bomber approached the Kuweires Military Airbase, the Syrian Arab Army soldiers protecting the southern guard post opened fire, destroying the BMP and killing the terrorist before he could reach his destination.

Following the failed suicide attack, the terrorist group stormed the western and southern perimeters of the Kuweires Military Airbase, where they attempted to break past the Syrian Armed Forces’ frontline defenses and capture the checkpoints located outside the airport’s vicinity.

The firefights at the Kuweires Military Airbase would continue throughout the afternoon on Friday, as the terrorist group repeatedly tried to infiltrate into the airport’s parameters, despite the stiff resistance from the Syrian Armed Forces.

Finally, after near seven hours of non-stop fighting, the terrorist group withdrew their fighters from the Kuweires Military Airbase; however, their retreat was not a clean one, as the Syrian Arab Air Force’s (SAAF) Hind Helicopter’s targeted their fleeing militants with a number of airstrikes near the ISIS stronghold of Deir Hafer.

According to a military source in the Aleppo Governorate, the Syrian Armed Forces defending the Kuweires Military Airport killed 21 enemy combatants from ISIS, including ‘Abdullah Zaid Hakim, Yousif Waleed Barakat, Iyad Hussein Al-Jawad, and Mohammad Fouad Khashab.
