On Tuesday morning, the Islamic State of Iraq and Al-Sham (ISIS) displayed their overconfidence inside the provincial capital of the Deir Ezzor Governorate by launching several attacks on the Syrian Arab Army’s defenses at the Al-Haweeqa, Al-Rashiddeen, Al-Sina’a, Al-Jubeileh, and Al-‘Amal Districts.

However, ISIS’ exuberance did very little to yield any gains for them inside the provincial capital, as the terrorist group sustained a significant number of casualties during their failed offensive yesterday morning.

According to a military source from the 104th Airborne Brigade of the Republican Guard, ISIS suffered a total of 29 casualties during their assault on the village of Al-Muri’iyah; 18 casualties at Deir Ezzor Military Airport’s southeastern gates; 13 casualties at the Al-Haweeqa District; 7 casualties on the Fouad Cinema Street; 9 casualties at Al-Jafra village; and 16 casualties between the Al-‘Amal, Al-Jubeileh, Al-Sina’a, and Al-Rashiddeen Districts.

The military source also added that ISIS lost 7 armored vehicles during these battles with the Syrian Arab Army in Deir Ezzor.

In addition to their plight inside the provincial capital, ISIS took a heavy hit at the village of Al-Hassaan in eastern Deir Ezzor after the Syrian Arab Air Force (SAAF) relentlessly pounded the terrorist group’s primary telecommunications hub in eastern Syria.

The Syrian Arab Air Force didn’t stop there, they also carried out several airstrikes over the village of Al-Hatla, where they attempted to destroy one of the terrorist group’s main supply depots in Deir Ezzor.

Frustrated over their lack of progress, the terrorist group attempted to fix the Al-Siyasiyah Bridge that links their supply route to the western bank of the provincial capital; however, they were unable to get much work done due to the Syrian Air Force’s airstrikes near the bridge.

You don’t hear America admitting to the amount of McCain’s “Head Hacking” terrorist buddies killed by Putin since he took over. Its good to see Russia getting the Job done instead of faking it like the Yanks.
