Early on June 18, ISIS terrorists launched an attack on positions of the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) in the eastern Hama countryside.

The attack targeted checkpoints of the army near the town of Ithriyah, which is located on a key trade road linking the northern city of Aleppo with Hama.

According to the London-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights (SOHR), six Syrian service members were killed and nine others were injured in the attack. Pro-government sources said that at least five terrorists were killed.

“This attack is the fifth of its kind in less than ten days, meaning that the Islamic State is stepping up its attacks within a new area, which is the Aleppo-Hama-Raqqa triangle,” the monitoring group said in a report.

Following the attack, the SAA deployed fresh reinforcements near Ithriyah. Several sources also reported that Russian warplanes carried out a series of airstrikes on ISIS’ hideouts in eastern Hama.

The SAA and its allies recently conducted a series of successful security operation in eastern Homs, southern Raqqa and western Deir Ezzor. Apparently these efforts forced the remaining ISIS terrorists to flee to southeastern and eastern Hama.

    The comedy of errors know ” as the Syrian war ” continues. ISIS must be invincible and immortal, with never ending supplies. While also being invisible to Russian satellites, radars, and drones. What a joke.

      When all they have to do is just ask the US Terrorist HQ where they are sending their proxies next!

      Russia and Syria bussed all the NATO extras to where they are today, saving a lot of SAA troops and civilians from fighting NATO supplied mercenaries with nothing to lose around large areas of Syria.
      Now they are backed up to NATO borders, as the Greeks will testify.

        I guess ISIS killed 15 SAA from the Greek border also.

          Idlib is far from Greece, just how stupid are you!

          As for 15 SAA, guess how many of your buddies have been eradicated.

      I have been saying from the start of the war,you don’t fight a war if the enemy logistic lines are not hit,i still can’t believe the bastards are still coming over the Turkish border.
