A Syrian army unit with the help of engineering units conducted an ambush against the ISIS in a street in al-Sina’ah neighborhood in Deir Ezzor city.
Farsnews reported that 75 ISIS members were killed and many were wounded after the Syrian army conducted an ambush operation in Deir Ezzor province.
Citing a field source, Farsnews said that a Syrian army unit with the help of engineering units conducted an ambush against the ISIS in a street in al-Sina’ah neighborhood in Deir Ezzor city by planting landmines and bombs in the street. When the bombs detonated, 75 ISIS terrorists were killed and tens of others injured.
The report also said that the ambush also destroyed the terrorists’ arms, equipment and a cannon.
On Wednesday, the Syrian Army and Air Force struck ISIS positions in three different battlefields across the Eastern province of Deir Ezzor and inflicted major losses on terrorists.
Nevertheless, the Arab country is currently observing an agreement for the cessation of hostilities which entered into force on February 27. The agreement stipulates the cessation of all military hostilities in Syria, except for the operations against ISIS terrorist group and al-Qaeda-linked al-Nusra Front militants. From the middle of the March, Russia has been partially withdrawing troops and warplanes from Syria to make an end to the Syrian crisis.
Citing unnamed officials, The Wall Street Journal reported last week that the CIA and its regional partners are developing Plan B in Syria including delivery of MANPADS to so-called moderate rebels, although the CIA didn’t comment on that.
