DAMASCUS, SYRIA (1:00 A.M.) – On Sunday evening, Amaq Agency published 17 images depicting an Islamic State attack from earlier in the day targeting the government-held hill of Al-Mashirfah near the junction town of Jubb Al-Jarrah.

The batch of photos shows ISIS militants preparing for the attack only to deploy a suicide bomber, tank and mortar gun to enable infantry units to overwhelm the site.

After climbing the hill top, ISIS opened fire on a Syrian Arab Army (SAA) camp located at the foothill of the strategic site. Although the initial Amaq bulletin claimed 20 SAA soldiers were killed, only three were shown dead in photos (not shown below due to graphic nature):

Despite suffering a temporal setback, the SAA vastly outnumbers ISIS and has liberated over a dozen villages across the provincial Homs-Hama border over the past week alone.

The SAA offensive on the Hama axis is led by the Desert Hawks Brigade and Military Shield Forces while the primary contingents deployed on the Homs axis are the 11th and 18th Tank Divisions along with elements of the 5th Legion and National Defence Forces (NDF).

Great pictures : easy to geolocate where they are. By the time now, a shitload of clusterbombs may have landed there…
