BEIRUT, LEBANON (8:50 A.M.) – The Syrian Arab Army unleashed a powerful attack against the Islamic State (ISIS/ISIL/IS/Daesh) forces in southeast Deir Ezzor this morning, a source told Al-Masdar News.

According to the military source, the Syrian Arab Army fired several surface-to-surface missiles towards the Islamic State’s positions near the town of Baghouz Al-Fouqani in the southeastern countryside of Deir Ezzor.

The military source said that several of their surface-to-surface missiles scored direct hits on the Islamic State’s positions, causing loud explosions that could be heard across the Euphrates River.

This powerful assault by the Syrian Arab Army on Tuesday morning comes in response to the Islamic State’s missile strike on a military bus that was carrying several soldiers along the Iraqi border.

As a result of the Islamic State missile attack near the border-city of Albukamal, a large number of Syrian Arab Army soldiers were killed or wounded.

Over the last 48 hours, the Islamic State has launched several rockets and artillery shells towards the Syrian Arab Army’s positions in the Albukamal countryside.
