On December 11, the ISIS-linked news agency Amaq claimed that members of ISIS launched a large attack on positions of the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) near the border city of al-Bukamal.

According to pro-ISIS sources, the terrorists conducted at least one vehicle-borne improvised explosive device and killed over 20 government troops during the attack. A battle tank and a BMP vehicle of the SAA were also reportedly destroyed.

The attack allegedly took place northwest of al-Bukamal. However, according to pro-government sources, ISIS units were not able to achieve any notable gains and were forced to withdraw after a seires of clashes with the SAA.

The situation in the area remains tense. A large number of ISIS members is now besieged in the Homs desert and in the border area between Syria and Iraq north of al-Bukamal. These terrorists still pose a threat to Syrian troops and US-backed forces operating there.

        You need to grow up and realize, just like Santa Claus, that the good, benevolent USA does not exist!!!! From its very beginning it was like a pack of feral dogs set loose upon the Native American. This genocidal masonic creation is now controlled by the Zionist mafia and US presidents are nothing but puppets who must obey the shadow government masters lest they get their brains blown out like JFK, served on a platter for a Rothschild bitch’s birthday. She filmed the whole thing, standing near the motorcade, unafraid, since she knew all the details of the Zionist/CIA/Nixon/LBJ plot. Then, they also stopped Robert Kennedy…and they control the Federal Reserve, and Israhell/AIPAC control all federal politicians, all of them go pay homage to Zionism, lest they are done with!!!! Do you know about the Israheli attack on the USS Liberty in 1967??? Do you know why LBJ/USA did nothing after the Zionist pigs murdered over 30 US sailors???? Sorry to burst your bubble, cupcake, but you need to wake the hell up!!!!

      Keep it up buddy :) Just don’t brake your neck while overthrowing Assad :) Talk to you later in a month or so.
      Some people don’t even try to comprehand what Putin means when he says that Russia is withdrawing its forces :)

    Saudi government could join Iran, Russia and China. Saudi government should not make it too late like Ex president of Iraq Saddam Hussain, M Qaddafi of Libya etc. Otherwise the damages to the Saudis government and whole nation that caused by America and Israhell will be too difficult to recovered.

    Asking for help from enemies of Muslims is not wise. United they can win and divided they will fall. Till this time what America have given to Saudi government just ready made military hardware and false promises. That is nothing. Saudi government could get military hardware manufacturing facilities.

    Their scientists can join research and development projects together with chines and Russian in nuclear power generation, military hardware technologies and in space delivery and exploration technologies etc. Then in this way Saudis can lead the world and not the American and Israhell.

          You are naive) You think that sportsmen not supported in decision by Gov and Putin? Goal is to win in any conditions) – it is usual for Russian Sport. Russia has no asthmatic team as Norway, but they will try to win)

          • Solomon Krupacek

            i am not naive. they prepared themselves for own money. the government can not stop them as individuals.

          • Lex

            You just confirmed my words) Where you saw info about “own money”? You are not in course of real situation.

      IS (Islamic State – “State”, get it?) is defeated, but banditry continues as long as Saudi money flows to the jihadists.

  • dutchnational

    One wonders how north west of Bukamal can be attacked by IS. The whole valley is supposed to be under control of Iranian proxies and some SAA, right?

    • John Whitehot

      amaq.

  • Thegr8rambino

    I find it very hard to believe these reports, especially when they come from amaq. How can daesh still do attacks like this? Where are they hiding?
