ISIS cells in Syria’s central region have carried out three new attacks against government forces and their allies in Homs and Deir Ezzor.
On June 3, ISIS terrorists ambushed an Iranian military advisor on the Homs-Deir Ezzor highway. According to Iranian sources, the advisor, Hassan Abdullahzadeh, was killed in the ambush along with his guard Mohsen Abbasi.

The terrorists didn’t stop there. Early on June 4, they attacked posts of the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) in the outskirts of the town of al-Sukhnah in eastern Homs.
According to the London-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, seven personnel of the SAA, including a Bridger General, were killed as a result of the attack. ISIS also lost three of its fighters.
At around the same time, ISIS cells attacks posts held by pro-government forces in Faydat Abu Muin’a in western Deir Ezzor. Five pro-government fighters and two terrorists were killed in the attack, which saw the use of rockets and other heavy weapons.
These attacks will likely provoke a fierce response by the SAA and the Russian Aerospace Forces. Earlier this week, more than 110 Russian and Syrian airstrikes targeted ISIS hideouts in the central region.
The terrorist group’s attempt to expand its influence and establish new strongholds in central Syria have been a failure, so far. Nevertheless, the fight against the group’s cells is still far from being over.
