BEIRUT, LEBANON (11:45 A.M.) – The Islamic State (ISIL) launched a powerful assault in the Deir Ezzor Governorate on Friday that targeted the area around the strategic military airport.

The Islamic State began the assault by storming the two checkpoints around the small mountaintop of Jabal Harabish; they would capture these two sites after overrunning the Syrian Army’s defenses.

However, the Islamic State’s success would be short-lived, as Syrian Army reinforcements poured in to help drive back the terrorist forces.

According to a military source in Deir Ezzor, the Syrian Arab Army managed to recapture all of the territory they lost around Jabal Harabish, including the two checkpoints near the mountaintop.

The Syrian Arab Army is now attacking the terrorist defenses inside the Deir Ezzor Cemetery area, as they look to lift the three month long siege on the military airport.

Its well known Assads became enemy nr 2 when ISIS arrived. So Assads paying for all the killings they have done during Assads and since the flag lost a star is kind of fine.

Most world agree abaut that. Better to friends with USA then Baatista Mafiosas.
