ISIS Ambush Claimed Lives Of Seven Al-Quds Brigade Fighters In Syria’s Deir Ezzor

Seven members of the pro-government al-Quds Brigade, including a field commander, were killed in an ambush by ISIS in southern Deir Ezzor, according to the London-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights (SOHR).

The ambush took place on December 2 on the road between the town of al-Mayadin and Faydat Ibn Muina, a small oasis located in western Deir Ezzor.

“Russian jets carried out more than 40 airstrikes today targeting the positions and fortifications of Islamic State members in the Syrian desert within the administrative borders of Homs, Hama, Raqqa and Deir Ezzor provinces,” the SOHR said in its report. “No casualties have been reported so far.”

Last week, the al-Quds Brigade, a Palestinian factions that has been supporting the Damascus government since 2013 and the National Defense Forces kicked off a combing operation in southern and western Deir Ezzor.

This year, ISIS terrorists have launched dozens of attacks on Syrian government forces from their stronghold in the heart of Syria, the Homs desert.

On November 28, ISIS ambushed a convoy of the Syrian Arab Army in eastern Homs. At least 20 soldiers were killed as a result of the attack. A number of vehicles, including battle tanks, were also destroyed by the terrorists.

Syrian government forces and their allies have so far failed to contain ISIS’ growing threat in the central region. A large-scale military operation deep within the Homs desert appears to be needed.

“A large-scale military operation deep within the Homs desert appears to be needed.”

Agree completely. But so does CENTCOM, who knows Syria can’t possibly mount such an operation after being bled dry by the U.S. (((and pals))) campaign of economic and military destruction. If Iranian forces show up to help clean the desert of head-choppers, then Israel will fly through U.S. sovereign territory at Tanf (soon to be our 51st state) and kill them.

The U.S. owns eastern Syria and will sacrifice as many head-choppers as needed to kick out the Syrians. Which is why the CIA keeps training new fake ISIS at the Rukban death camp, many which they recruited from al Hol and other death camps up north. They’ll keep sending fresh ‘ISIS’ into the desert forever if they need to in order to regularly stage ambushes or attack Deir EzZor. Eventually, CENTCOM

Willing Conscience (The Truths

The US has increased activities near the Euphrates river over the last week, there was increased drone surveillance, increased patrols and logistic convoys, and air and ground drills at Al Tanf, and in response the Iranian’s shipped in massive reinforcements and placed all their personnel on high alert, is something happening that we’re not being told about?
