BEIRUT, LEBANON (4:30 P.M.) – The Islamic State (ISIL) launched a powerful assalt in the Deir Ezzor Governorate, Thursday, targeting several areas inside this desert province in eastern Syria.

ISIL began their offensive by targeting the Syrian Army’s positions at the Muwadafeen District of Deir Ezzor on Thursday morning; this resulted in a series of intense clashes that lasted for several hours.

Despite their best efforts, the Islamic State was unable to bypass the Syrian Army’s defenses, resulting in the withdrawal of the terrorist forces.

Not long after repelling the ISIL attack, the Syrian Arab Army’s 137th Regiment of the 17th Reserve Division spotted one of the Islamic State’s armed drones flying over residential buildings in the Harabish District.

The Syrian Army would shoot down the armed drone before it could harm any civilians or military personnel in the area.

In response to the Islamic State’s attacks, the Russian and Syrian air forces carried out a large number of airstrikes over the Deir Ezzor Governorate, targeting the terrorist group’s positions near the Regiment 137 Base, Provincial Cemetery, Raqqa Bridge, Ayn Abu Jama’a Police Station, and Koneko Oil field.

According to a military source in the province, the Russian and Syrian airstrikes resulted in the destruction of at least five trenches, three armored vehicles, and two field artillery guns.

The airstrikes also managed to kill several Islamic State terrorists that were present in the targeted areas.
