The Islamic State of Iraq and Al-Sham (ISIS) launched another assault to capture the Tishreen Power Plant and Dumayr Military Airport from the Syrian Armed Forces on Saturday; however, the terrorist group’s attack would end in a frantic retreat after Syrian fighter jets pounded their combatants at this mountainous front.

ISIS began the assault on Saturday by launching a VBIED (vehicle borne improvised explosive device) at the Syrian Arab Army’s defenses near the Tishreen Power Plant; this terrorist attack would not succeed, thanks in large part to the alert checkpoint guards.

Following the failed terrorist attack, ISIS stormed a checkpoint outside of the Tishreen Power Plant, where they were confronted by a large force from the Syrian Arab Army (SAA).

The battle would rage for nearly 2 hours on Saturday morning before the terrorist group would finally call it quits and retreat across the eastern slopes of the Qalamoun Mountains in order to evade the swarming Syrian fighter jets.

According to an Al-Masdar correspondent in Damascus City, ISIS lost several fighters during the failed infiltration attempt, including a number of combatants that could not be identified.
