BEIRUT, LEBANON (11:10 A.M.) – Amid ongoing battles between US-backed forces and Islamic State terrorists in eastern Syria, pro-Coalition fighters have endured yet another day of high losses after a suicide bomber of the terrorist group managed to slip past their defenses and hit a gathering point.

On late Wednesday night, ISIS conducted a suicide bombing attack against Syrian Coalition-led forces in the province of Deir Ezzor. The terrorist who carried out the deed was reportedly of Uzbek ethinicity.

According to a statement released by ISIS-affiliated media, the suicide operation resulted in the death and wounding of twenty pro-Coalition fighters and if true, indicates that the attacker scored a direct hit on his target.

The exact town or village in which the attack took place is not clear at this time, only that it took place somewhere in rural Deir Ezzor.

Furthermore, the means of delivery for the attack, be it a car bomb or explosive vest, is also not clarified although, again, if the casualty count claimed by ISIS is even remotely true, then a vehicle bomb was most likely used.
