On November 11, clashes between the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) and ISIS continued inside al-Bukamal city, according to local sources. The sources said that several VBIEDs of ISIS targeted positions of the SAA and Hezbollah inside and east of al-Bukamal city in the last 48 hours.
However, the local sources confirmed that the remaining ISIS fighters inside the city are still fully besieged by the SAA and Hezbollah.
From its side, the ISIS-linked news agency Amaq reported that ISIS fighters fired five anti-tank guided missiles against the SAA killing three SAA soldiers, and destroying two tanks and two vehicles east and west of al-Bukamal city.
Amaq also published a video on November 10, which proves that ISIS fighters are still inside al-Bukamal.
Back on November 10, ISIS fighters fired ten ATGMs against the SAA around al-Bukamal city. This intensive use of such expensive weapon may confirm that ISIS members are defending some VIP of the terrorist group, like the group leader himself Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi.
The SAA and its allies announced on November 8 that they liberated al-Bukamal city. However, it appears that fully securing the city will need more time and effort.
