DAMASCUS, SYRIA (0:25 A.M.) – Fresh footage was published by ISIS on Monday showing a recent raid on one of the Syrian Arab Army’s (SAA) desert fortifications along the provincial border between Homs and Deir Ezzor, not far from the border with Iraq.

The large-scale raid is believed to have occured some time last week and had an entire garrison of SAA troops fleeing the site or killed on the spot.

Viewer discretion is advised:


At the time, ISIS’ main media wing Amaq Agency claimed upwards of 100 government soldiers were killed. In reality, the number is estimated at less than half missing or killed-in-action.

Shortly after, the SAA retook all lost points with Russian air support although Islamic State belligerents did manage to seize a number of bulldozers, BM-21 Grad rocket launchers and machine-gun manned vehicles from the targeted area.

Commander of the garrison fault. No proper defence around camp and guards on full alert. It is impossible for attacker penetrating in close approx (especially desert plain) if you setup proper defence in advance and arrange your troops which sector each of them defend.
Kornet ATGM should be placed in each side and on each side at least 2 RPG’s ready along with manned 50cal MG. Wider the trenches, more guards you need on duty, rotating with rested ones.
Troops shall never feel at ease in the frontline where danger is imminent.
Commander mistakes cost own troop lives.

This is farken pathetic; HTF can these desert rats sneak up on SAA position, the terrain is flat and treeless so they can be seen for miles. Do the SAA post lookouts? They need a helicopter for CAS at each base as well.
This isn’t the first time SAA positions have been over run. Lift your game SAA, your soldiers deserve more than this.
