BEIRUT, LEBANON (2:15 P.M.) – The so-called “Islamic State of Iraq and Al-Sham” (ISIS) launched another assault on the key town of Huwaysis in northeastern Homs today after suffering heavy casualties during their prior attempt this morning.

Using a VBIED (vehicle borne improvised explosive device), the Islamic State terrorists broke-through the Syrian Arab Army’s (SAA) first-line of defense at Huwaysis, resulting in the latter’s eventual withdrawal this afternoon.

Al-Masdar News was told by a military source at the nearby T-4 Military Airport that the Islamic State’s second assault was indeed successful and that the Syrian Air Force is once again launching airstrikes to weaken the terrorist group’s resolve.

Possession of Huwaysis has constantly switched sides in the past, with both the Islamic State and Syrian Arab Army engaged in a tug-of-war type battle at this desert front in northeast Homs.

Who’s the idiot who forgot to let a few ATGMs to the boys? He deserves to be spanked.
