BEIRUT, LEBANON (12:10 A.M.) – The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) is in full control of Albukamal after the Islamic State (ISIS) managed to break into the border-city on Friday.

According to a military source, the Islamic State crossed the Euphrates River on Friday in order to launch a new attack on the Syrian Arab Army’s positions.

Using a plethora of suicide bombers, the Islamic State was able to fracture the Syrian Army’s defenses and briefly occupy a part of this strategic border-city near Iraq’s Al-Anbar Governorate.

Once the Islamic State’s attack was forestalled, the Syrian Army began a cleansing operation around Albukamal in a bid to drive out the Islamic State.

The Syrian Army drove out the Islamic State quickly, but it took them some time to secure the area around the Euphrates River.

Friday’s attack by the Islamic State marked the second time this week that the terrorist group has made an attempt to enter Albukamal.
