On Friday morning, the Islamic State of Iraq and Al-Sham (ISIS) launched another assault on the strategic Deir Ezzor Military Airport, striking the Syrian Arab Army’s defensive positions at the eastern perimeter of this base after failing to advance the day before.

ISIS began their assault during the wee hours of the morning when one of their female suicide bombers attempted to ram her vehicle filled with explosives into the Ceramic Factory’s eastern perimeter.

Unfortunately for the ISIS suicide bomber, her vehicle filled with explosives was destroyed by the soldiers from the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) before it could reach its intended destination at the Ceramic Factory.

Following the failed suicide bombing, wave after wave of ISIS fighters stormed the defensive positions of the Syrian Arab Army’s 137th Artillery Brigade of the 17th Reserve Division, resulting in a series of intense firefights that left dozens of casualties for both sides.

Once again, ISIS was unable to break-through the Syrian Arab Army’s defensive positions at the Ceramic Factory outside of the Deir Ezzor Military Airport; this failed infiltration resulted in the death of over 60 enemy combatants, including several foreigners from Chechnya, Saudi Arabia, Iraq, Malaysia, Kuwait, and Lebanon.

According to a number of ISIS social media activists, the female suicide was of Chechen descent – she is also the first female to carry out a suicide bombing in Syria.

In the last 2 days, the terrorist group has suffered over 90 casualties trying to infiltrate into the Deir Ezzor Military Airport, marking another disastrous campaign for ISIS in eastern Syria.
