ALEPPO, SYRIA (9:45 P.M.) – The Islamic State of Iraq and AL-Sham (ISIS) launched a large-scale assault at the Kuweires Military Airport area of east Aleppo on Thursday, targeting the surrounding villages of Hazarah and Tal Maksour.

ISIS began the assault by launching a simultaneous attack at both Tal Maksour and Hazarah, while hammering the Kuweires Airbase with mortar shells from afar.

Attempting to overrun the Syrian Armed Forces using surprise tactics, the Islamic State militants struck the government’s front-lines with several fighters.

However, the Islamic State militants were unable to infiltrate the Syrian Arab Army’s defenses after several hours of battle; this ultimately resulted in their swift withdrawal to the northern countryside of the Kuweires MIlitary Airbase.

According to a Syrian Arab Army source, the Islamic State lost approximately 15 fighters during the battle, along with an armored vehicle that was mounted with a 23 mm anti-aircraft machine gun.

They’re not an army at all : only terror and guerilla tactics. Well, there was some real military planing when al-Douri drew battle plans for them, helping them to seize large swath of land although it was against an army without real will to fight…
In Syria, it was different : a lot of FSA fighters were (and still are) nothing else than mercenaries. Daesh was already making a whole lotta money, they simply payed more than FSA then you’ve seen huge areas under Daesh control in the blink of an eye.
