BEIRUT, LEBANON (5:00 A.M.) – The so-called Islamic State of Iraq and Al-Sham (ISIS) launched another offensive in the Deir Ezzor Governorate on Friday, targeting the Syrian Arab Army controlled Al-Rashidiyah District inside the provincial capital.

ISIS began the assault at 3 A.M. on Friday morning, when a large number of their fighters stormed the Syrian Arab Army’s defenses at the southern perimeter of Al-Rashidiyah.

For 3 hours on Friday, ISIS attempted to infiltrate the Syrian Army’s defenses in Al-Rashidiyah, only to retreat at dawn due to their inability to seize any territory.

According to a military source at the Deir Ezzor Military Airport, the Syrian Arab Army’s Al-Qassem Group killed at least 15 Islamic State terrorists, while also seizing 2 pick-up trucks mounted with anti-aircraft machine guns.

What is really delightful about Daesh in Deir-Ezzor is how they always end ridiculed trying to take the town. Once Palmyra retaken, just take advice from their general to prepare the defences and avoid the town to be retaken 😉
