DAMASCUS, SYRIA (6:45 P.M.) – The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) carried out several attacks against the so-called “Islamic State of Iraq and Al-Sham” (ISIS) inside the Deir Ezzor Governorate on Friday, targeting the terrorist group’s positions at the Al-Jafra and Al-Muri’iyah farms.

Following their successful defense against the Islamic State militants on Thursday, the Syrian Arab Army conducted several missile strikes against the terrorist group, killing a number of their personnel before the Syrian Arab Air Force (SAAYF) entered the battle.

The video footage above shows the Syrian Arab Army’s 137th Artillery Brigade of the 17th Reserve Division firing several anti-tank guided missiles (ATGM) against the terrorist forces in the Al-Jafra Farms.

Due to a manpower shortage, the Islamic State’s offensive capabilities have been limited in the Deir Ezzor Governorate, forcing them to carry out hit-and-run attacks against the Syrian Arab Army, instead their typical large-scale assault.

Due to manpower shortage of the cockroaches, maybe is it time to consider the cleansing of some areas…

An interesting point :

Many of the jets of the Kuznetsov are at Humaymim.
It’s no surprise for me as I pointed a few weeks ago that due to the fact that this CV is a STOBAR, the Su-33 can’t take off at full load (although I still do not understand why they didn’t considered using JATOs : such rockets would compensate the lack of catapults although they make the launch a bit expensive), thus, I still do not really see why sending a CV when you have land-bases inside the country, except in some sort of show of force/PR stuff.
