BEIRUT, LEBANON (2:00 A.M.) – Scores of Syrian Arab Army (SAA) soldiers were killed in a new ambush by the so-called “Islamic State” (ISIS/ISIL/IS/Daesh) in the Al-Safa region of the Al-Sweida Governorate.

According to the military report from Sweida, at least 15 soldiers from the Syrian Arab Army and National Defense Forces (NDF) were ambushed while traveling through a rocky area in the Al-Safa region.

The Islamic State released gruesome photos showing the aftermath of the ambush; they show at least ten soldiers killed in the attack.

Due to the rough terrain of the Al-Safa region, the Syrian Arab Army has been forced to advance at a slow pace against the Islamic State terrorists.

As long as the Islamic State holds the highest peak in the Al-Safa region, the Syrian Arab Army will at the mercy of the terrorist snipers that are hidden throughout this vast volcanic area.

A score is 20 , scores is multiples of 20 and at least 10 is half a score .. which isn’t close too scores.. At this rate a couple of dead ISIS will equate to a division wiped out.. which would be nice if it were true , but

You beat me to it. It drives me mad when they (a lot of news outlets) continue to state it.

Yes I thought that a major massacre had happened but it was a section unit caught in the open. Unfortunate as it was at least it wasn’t scores or even just one..

Maybe they should have said dozens instead of scores.

Since when does almost ten become dozens. Dozens is barely any improvement on scores. Dozens is just as false as scores.Why not say 10

Admitedly its “difficult” terrain but come on! Just outright bomb them out of there! Artillery to sweep the area and good old fashioned carpet bomb them from the air! Dont they have helicopters with night vision? Surely the russians have this facility in their attack helicopters!? Just spot them and observe their concentrations and collapse the cave or cover onto their heads! Christ use napalm! Noone will complain,its isis afterall!!come on,this is getting embarrasing!!!

Admin. Please note that a “score” is 20, not 5. Your writers keep using score incorrectly which is misleading to English speaking people.
Definition of score (Entry 1 of 2)
1 or plural score
a : TWENTY
b : a group of 20 things —often used in combination with a cardinal number

Thank you for your consideration.

Such a tunnel would be far longer than the French-Brit channel one.
This is a volcanic area, you have many many caves and terrain is really difficult.
Carpet bombing, even with cluster-bombs would be barely useless

Cluster bombs are illegal and therefore only used by Russia.

Saa and Ndf have been dying in there rage trying to drive out a small pocket of mujahideen in Al-Safa. Saa have had false hopes of a speedy victory with no avail. You should expect to see more Saa rats getting terminated in Syria by the hands of the Islamic State mujahideen for they special in this.

A good mujahideen is a dead one since he has his 72 virgin goats in his perverts’ paradise and since this moron loves death more than people of this world love life.
Let’s make everybody happy : Mujahideen should consider arming themselves with sabres instead of kafir weapons, so we’ll “martyr” them massively and they’ll so be able to shag their virgin goats forever.
This would be a win-win agreement making everybody happy.
