BEIRUT, LEBANON (9:00 P.M.) The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) foiled a new attempt by the Islamic State (ISIS/ISIL/IS/Daesh) to cross the Euphrates River and enter their territory in southeastern Deir Ezzor.

According to a military source in Damascus, the Syrian Arab Army spotted a group of Islamic State terrorists trying to cross the Euphrates River near the key city of Albukamal this morning.

As soon as the terrorist combatants were spotted, the Syrian Arab Army opened fire on the Islamic State fighters in order to prevent their escape from the Baghouz area of southeastern Deir Ezzor.

The source said that the Islamic State group consisted of more than 15 fighter; they were either eliminated during the attempted escape or retreated back towards the Baghouz area.

The Islamic State has been trying to break out of the Baghouz Mountains for nearly a week now; however, intense pressure from the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) and U.S. Coalition has ultimately forced them to make desperate attempts to escape across the Euphrates.

They should have waited until they were half way across and then given them some lead which has been proven to act as a flotation device. You know the SAA are always trying to help.
