BEIRUT, LEBANON (12:35 A.M.) – The Islamic State (ISIS) launched a massive assault in Deir Ezzor on Sunday, targeting the Syrian Arab Army’s (SAA) defenses around the Panorama area.

Taking advantage of the rough weather, the Islamic State terrorists stormed the Syrian Arab Army’s defenses at the Panorama Farms; this resulted in a fierce battle that lasted for much of the morning on Sunday.

Despite some rumors spread on social media regarding the battle at the Panorama roundabout and farms, the Islamic State never took control of these sites in western Deir Ezzor; instead, they ended up on the defensive as the Syrian Arab Army launched a powerful assault at the cemetery.

According to a military source in Deir Ezzor, the Syrian Arab Army advanced at least 400 meters through the cemetery, forcing the Islamic State terrorists to withdraw from several points after suffering a number of casualties.

Among the points captured by the Syrian Arab Army on Sunday was the strategic cemetery hill, which overlooks the Deir Ezzor Bus Station.

The military source added that over 40 Islamic State terrorists were killed during Sunday’s field operations, including a large number of foreign combatants from Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, and Iraq.
