DEIR EZZOR, SYRIA (3:00 A.M.) – The loss of Jabal Thardeh in western Deir Ezzor has proved to be a major thorn in the Syrian Arab Army’s (SAA) side, as they find themselves under heavy attack at the strategic military airport.

The Islamic State of Iraq and Al-Sham (ISIS) has taken advantage of the Syrian Arab Army’s plight in Deir Ezzor by storming the military airport, applying pressure from two different flanks.

On Friday morning, the Islamic State stormed the western and southern flanks of the Deir Ezzor Military Airport; this resulted in a day-long battle that ended with the terrorist forces failing to advance at either axes.

Despite their failed advance on Friday, the Islamic State possesses the high ground near the Deir Ezzor Military Airport, which spells bad news for the Syrian Arab Army, if they are unable to quickly retake Jabal Thardeh.

Dude : this is the results of a stupid attack by two A-10s against SAA (I suppose the F-16s were just doing air cover for the A-10s), not from any kind of poor management in SAA… CENTCOM really sucked!
