BEIRUT, LEBANON (11:30 P.M.) – The Islamic State (ISIS/ISIL/IS/Daesh) launched their heaviest attack of the year, today, targeting the Syrian Arab Army’s (SAA) positions in the vast desert region between the Deir Ezzor and Homs governorates.

According to a military report from the Homs Governorate, the Islamic State launched several attacks on the Syrian Army’s positions during the early morning hours, resulting in a fierce battle that would last for much of the day.

The report said the Islamic State primarily concentrated their attacks on the Badiya Al-Sukhnah and Badiya Al-Sham regions.

Following hours of intense firefights, the Syrian Arab Air Force (SyAAF) entered the battle, carrying out several strikes on the Islamic State terrorists.

These strikes would prove effective, as the Syrian Arab Army and their allies from the National Defense Forces (NDF) and Liwaa Al-Quds were able to restore order.

The Syrian Army and their allies were able to kill and wound several Islamic State fighters during the clashes, forcing the latter to eventually abandon their assault and flee further into the desert.

All day battle against well armed defenses without heavy artillery support usually means losses of at least 5-1. These ISIS attacks are virtual suicide missions. When Arab journalists say ‘several’ they know it means more than one. But donot stipulate if several dozens or hundreds. One can assume it was several hundred casualties.

Why don’t the SAA and/or its allies CHASE these salafist shitheads, these wahahahabi drug-induced crackpots, into the desert and slaughter them in the deep desert?

…. and leave their carcasses lying on the desert, as a testament to their folly and impotence, and as a warning to zionist-mafia not to mess with the SAA. Have you noticed that every time the SAA attacks and kills ISIS terrorists, the zionist-mafia colony forces in Occupied Palestine attacks Syrian government assets? I believe the SAA has been killing a lot of zionist-mafia handlers advisors terrorist-enablers in the ranks of the ISIS terrorists.

But that it’s the terrorists always launching the attacks, while the SAA mostly just mans its position points to the war not wrapping up anytime soon.
The SAA has to actually be able and willing to seek out and destroy the criminals over just maintaining a base.
