BEIRUT, LEBANON (7:45 A.M.) – The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) and their allies have launched a fresh assault on the Islamic State’s (ISIS) defenses in occupied Albukamal, today, a military source told Al-Masdar News.

Led by the attack helicopters of the elite Tiger Forces, the Syrian Arab Army and their allies pounded the Islamic State’s positions in Albukamal, inflicting heavy damage on the terrorist group’s defenses around the city.

The attack would also kill several Islamic State combatants, including three terrorist field commanders that led the counter-assault against the Syrian Army this weekend.

The dead Islamic State commanders were identified by a Syrian military source as Hani Al-Thalji, Abu Munzer Al-Shishani (Chechen national), and Abu Mohammad Al-Safi.

This latest assault by the government comes just hours after the Tiger Forces launched a powerful attack from Al-Mayadeen in a bid to reach Albukamal’s northwestern sector.

There is no such thing as a “Chechen national”. They’re Chechens, but Russian nationals.

Pretty silly mistake for almasdar to make.

Syrian government forces are fighting US sponsored Kurdish terrorists to take
back Albukamal city. Syrian News needs to print the right news and not fake
news.
