13 Iranian-Backed Fighters Killed, Injured In New Deir Ezzor Attack

Illustrative image

On December 1, ISIS fighters carried out a large attack on the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) and its allies in the southern Deir Ezzor countryside.

According to the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights (SOHR), the attack targeted several positions of the army and its allies in the vicinity of the city of al-Mayadin.

“Clashes between the two sides lasted for about an hour, accompanied by heavy machine guns fire and shelling, after this, the fighters of the organization [ISIS] withdraw to the desert,” the SOHR’s report reads.

Three fighters of Iranian-backed Liwa Fatemiyoun were killed and ten others were injured as a result of the attack. The group is known to be affiliated with the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC).

Liwa Fatemiyoun has been deeply involved in operations of the SAA against ISIS in the governorates of Homs and Deir Ezzor.

The attack was most likely launched from the Homs desert, which lays between eastern Homs and western Deir Ezzor. Hundreds of ISIS fighters and commanders are reportedly hiding there.

            He use Ironi and humor, which is not even possible in the primitive languages such as arabic and turkish. Most westerns do undertstand it well, but many dont laugh because so many diws for bad reasons.

          • gryzor84

            Hebrew and Arabic are two Semitic tongues sharing common roots in Aramean, as such it is well-known that one can base himself on knowing one to learn the other in 6 months,again you show your intellectual clumsiness by failing to berate something you dont like.

  • Rhodium 10

    13 or 3 killed?…by the way SOHR is not a reliable source..it is close to Israel and USA!

    • Jens Holm

      Much more like You are completly nuts. Does it really matters if 10 are wounded only.

      Fats unfortunatly are, that ISIS still can make operations of that seize in that area.

      • Rhodium 10

        ISIS cannot do nothing!..only try to survive like a desert rat

  • gustavo

    WOW, and WOW SAA has not been able to get rid of terrorists in this area. WOW !

    • Karen Bartlett

      If you mean Idlib, or any other areas controlled by terrorists, the terrorists use civilians as human shields, building their ammo dumps and other infrastructure in civilian neighborhoods. That is why Syria is slow to simply bomb them to smithereens (as the US did in Raqqa and Mosul, killing thousands of civilians).
