With battles escalating for Deir Ezzor military airbase, the last bastion for the Syrian government forces in the eastern province, the Syrian Army continue to fight off what has been described as the fiercest offensive launched by ISIS for months.

With the government troops losing control of some parts of the main supply route to the airbase as well as the Engineering Housing compound, the Syrian fighter jets conducted several airstrikes on ISIS positions in Thardah Mount and the surroundings of Panorama roundabout.

It’s not yet clear whether the warplanes took off from the city’s airbase since ISIS fighters overlook the airfields from Thardah Mount, located to the southwest of the airbase.

Why isn’t USA helping now if they’re so interested in killing ISIS? No SAA to bomb or what?

The Syrian army needs to forcefully reduce terrorists numbers as much as possible. Fight strong, efficient and smart. Don’t go soft, even if and when the rebels are surrounded and retreating.
A very high manpower among them is what keeps Syria occupied and in war.

It’s a wonder how the SAA and their SAF fail so miserably.
