BEIRUT, LEBANON (8:35 P.M.) – Last night, the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) came under a heavy attack from a group of Islamic State (ISIS) militants near the Deir Ezzor Airport after they seized several points around the cemetery earlier in the day.
On Saturday evening, the Syrian Arab Army turned the tables on the Islamic State near the military airport, liberating several points at the western part of the cemetery and Panorama area of Deir Ezzor.
Backed by nonstop Russian airstrikes, the Syrian Arab Army has been able to forestall most of the Islamic State’s infiltration attempts around the military airport, despite the intensity of these attacks by the terrorist group.
The Syrian Arab Army will need to recover the cemetery, Jirayah village, Jabal Al-‘Amal, and Jabal Harabish before they can lift the siege imposed on the military airport by the Islamic State.
