BEIRUT, LEBANON (3:20 P.M.) – The Islamic State (ISIS) forces launched a powerful offensive in the Deir Ezzor Governorate last night that targeted the Syrian Arab Army’s (SAA) positions at the Al-Sina’a District and military airport.

ISIS began the offensive last night after they foiled the Syrian Arab Army’s infiltration attempt into the eastern part of the Deir Ezzor Cemetery.

Using heavy artillery to weaken the Syrian Arab Army’s defenses, the Islamic State forces simultaneously stormed the government’s positions at Al-Sannouf Hill and Al-Sina’a, leading to a series of intense clashes that carried on until late Wednesday.

According to a military source in Deir Ezzor, the Syrian Arab Army repelled all of the terrorist group’s attacks over the last 24 hours, killing and wounding tens of terrorists in the process.

The military source added that the Syrian Arab Army also destroyed an Islamic State trench and an armored vehicle fitted with a 23mm anti-aircraft machine gun.

In response to this Islamic State offensive, the Syrian Arab Army launched a vicious artillery assault tonight on the terrorist group’s positions at the Al-Ta’im Oil Field and Electrical Station.

The Syrian Arab Army is now storming the Deir Ezzor Cemetery in a new attempt to lift the siege on the military airport – no gains have been reported thus far.

While the fighting continues around the western bank of the Euphrates River, the Syrian government successfully air dropped food, fuel, and ammunition to the besieged soldiers at the military airport, Harabish District, and Al-Jafra village.

There’s no greater joy than seeing these Daeshbags laid out on the floor, courtesy of the SAA. They thought it would be an easy victory considering the Deir ez Zor pocket is double besieged but as they have come to find out when landing in h**l, they would be wrong. Keep it coming and please don’t be hesitant to post more pictures!

Looks like they captured a lot of bullets/ammunition too in the photo.
Are any of the latest dead found to be foreigners?

Quiero que muestren mas fotos de terroristas muertos en cada una de sus acciones para bajar la moral de los mercenarios y que sepan los medios occidentales.
