BEIRUT, LEBANON (7:45 A.M.) – A large group of Islamic State (ISIS/ISIL/IS/Daesh) terrorists fled the Baghouz Mountain region of eastern Deir Ezzor last night and crossed the Euphrates River to reach the Syrian Arab Army’s (SAA) territories.

The Islamic State terrorists attempted to evade the Syrian Army troops at Al-Sayyal so that they could reach their comrades in the Badiya Al-Sham region of western Deir Ezzor.

However, the Islamic State’s fighters would ultimately be spotted by Syrian Army scouts, prompting a fierce engagement at the town of Al-Sayyal.

The Syrian Arab Army was able to get the upper hand against the fleeing Islamic State fighters, killing and wounding nearly all of the terrorists during the twilight hours last night.

This latest break out attempt by the Islamic State marks the second time in the last 24 hours that the terrorist group has sought to escape the Euphrates River Valley region for Badiya Al-Sham.

During Sunday’s break out attempt from the Euphrates River Valley, the Islamic State forces suffered the same fate as their comrades on Monday.

ISIS has been conducting these break out attempts at night in order to better their chances of not being spotted by either the Syrian Arab Army and Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF).

  1. Again: Very hard to believe. ISIS should havecrossed through SDFs, then Eufrat and then this.

    SAA and company might have met troops and even many and even killed some(often with SAA inflation), but I dont believe they come from the SDF territory.
