Report: Islamic State launched heavy attack against Syrian Army troops in east Syria

The Islamic State (ISIS) launched a new attack on Monday that targeted the Syrian Arab Army’s (SAA) positions in the Deir Ezzor Governorate.

According to a field report from the zone, the IS launched an attack on the Syrian Arab Army’s positions in the mountainous area of Jabal Bishri; this resulted in a fierce battle for a few hours on Monday. The report said the Syrian Army was able to foil the Islamic State attack after killing and wounding several terrorist combatants.

At the same time, another Syrian Army unit confronted an Islamic State faction in the Jabal Al-Sukhnah region, which is located west of the administrative border of Deir Ezzor.

The Islamic State has recently stepped up their attack against the Syrian Arab Army, prompting the latter to increase security measures across eastern and central Syria.

In April, the Islamic State also launched a number of attacks against the Syrian army’s positions in eastern Syria targeting the Arab forces in the Badiya al-Sukhnah and Badiya al-Sham regions of Homs Governorate.

According to an Observatory reports, the terrorist group  expanded their attacks to several points in the eastern countryside of the Homs Governorate, prompting the Syrian Arab Air Force to enter the battle.

A field source confirmed that the Syrian Air Force launched several airstrikes targeting the ISIS terrorists, force them to scatter and abandon their attacks. The source added that the airstrikes were highly effective, as ISIS fled the areas after being repeatedly attacked from the air.
