Late on April 24, ISIS cells ambushed a convoy of the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) in the eastern countryside of Homs in central Syria. 

The terrorists targeted the convoy with an improvised explosive device (IED) while it was passing in the outskirts of the town of al-Sukhnah. ISIS news agency, Amaq, said that a truck was destroyed as a result of the attack.

Later, the terrorists detonated a second IED when an engineer unit was bought in to clear the area. A number of service members were killed or injured.

A day earlier, ISIS cells attacked a unit of the SAA’s 5th Crops that was recently deployed in eastern Hama. According to the London-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights (SOHR), two soldiers were killed and three others were injured during the attack.

Amaq released photos of eastern Hama attack on April 24. The photos show ISIS terrorists firing truck-mounted heavy machine guns at Syrian troops.

ISIS attacks were not limited to Homs and Hama. Early on April 25, the terrorist group opened fire at a post of the SAA in Jebel Bishri, which is located on the administrative border between Raqqa and Deir Ezzor. As a result, a soldier was killed and two others were injured, per the SOHR.

The recent attacks by the terrorist group represent a major escalation. The response of the SAA and its allies, first and foremost the Russian Aerospace Forces, will likely be fierce.

    LOL, two crazy over a motorcycle is everything they have as evidence of their attacks? Two flash in the darkness of the night do not show anything, even the ISIS is no longer that of the past.

    1. Jens Holm says:

      Sure. When You write about it the Assads are in Sukna for swimming lessons armed with sunglasses and only umbrellals for safety matters.

      ISIS is not trhere, because the Russians bombarded them into fertilizer.

      Surely there have been no ISIS attacks..but for anti SAA propagande purpose ISIS Amaq and SOHR always are partners!…meanwhile ISIS takes photos in Al Tanf area…

  3. Jihadi Colin says:

    Not much the Russian Air Force can do if the ISISsies disperse widely after attacking instead of clotting together in nice bombable groups.

    1. Jens Holm says:

      Thats right. They are veteran experts concentration and spreading well. They already has many many hidingplaces too.

      Bombarding all and many ISIS are under ground only hits very few.

      Americans and SDFs are doing a little better, because they are brighter and more mobile, but teven them cant handle just like that.

  4. Willing Conscience (The Truths says:

    Russia just killed 200 Isis fighters and destroyed 24 of their vehicles just 17km southeast of Al-Sukhanah/As Shukhnah, obviously the Russians didn’t get them all.

    1. RichardD says:

      These reports from the SOHR and the Isis news agency, which are both state sponsered terrorist mouth pieces. are probably propaganda. Like the White helmets and NATO gas attack fake news.
