DAMASCUS, SYRIA (1:30 P.M.) – On Sunday morning, an Islamic State platoon mobilized on the provincial border between Raqqa and Aleppo to conduct a risky attack against the newly liberated government-held town of Muhammad Deeb.

In what appeared to be a succesful hit-and-run raid, ISIS fighters engaged the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) in close-quarter combat amid the bombed-out rubbles of Muhammad Deeb and managed to capture a batch of guns, anti-tank missiles and grenades.

Subsequently, the jihadist combattants withdrew to their initial positions in the evening hours, bringing with them the much-needed spoils of war.

Amaq Agency published 17 images depicting the aforementioned raid:

According to a military source close to Al-Masdar News, the SAA’s Tiger Forces did endure an ISIS attack on Muhammad Deeb and briefly withdrew from some gun emplacements for tactical reasons. All points were late retaken, the source added.

The Tiger Forces commander-in-chief Suheil Al-Hassan is deployed on the Aleppo frontier and is known to employ tactics that always aim to reduce government casualties.

A few days ago, the SAA liberated some 20 villages on the southern bank of the Euphrates River, thus establishing a vital foothold inside Raqqa province itself.
