The Islamic State of Iraq and Al-Sham (ISIS) launched its second offensive at the Deir Ezzor Military Airport in the last 48 hours, striking the Syrian Arab Army’s defenses near the southeastern perimeter of this imperative military installation in eastern Syria.

ISIS began their assault by sending another large wave of fighters through the open fields of Al-Muri’iyah in order to gain an advantageous position near the Deir Ezzor Military Airport; however, this attack was doomed for failure from the start, as the government positions proved too difficult to penetrate.

According to a military source from the Syrian Arab Army’s 104th Airborne Brigade of the Republican Guard, the ISIS fighters charging their defenses were gunned down before they could reach their intended destination inside Al-Muri’iyah Farms.

The source added that over 30+ ISIS bodies lay in the fields of Al-Muri’iyah and have not been withdrawn by the terrorist group due to their exposure to the Syrian Arab Army’s machine guns.

As a result of this failed assault, ISIS has lost just over 70 fighters trying to overrun the Syrian Army’s defenses inside the Al-Muri’iyah Farms in the last 48 hours; this has been one of the biggest flops for the terrorist group this year.
