ISIS Cells Attack Iranian-Backed Forces Near Phosphate Mines In Central Syria

Illustrative image

Late on February 13, ISIS cells attacked Iranian-backed forces guarding Syrian phosphate mines in Homs’ southern countryside.

According to the Istanbul-based Syria TV, ISIS terrorists attacked three posts of Iranian-backed forces to the east of the town of Khunayfis. Other positions were shelled by the terrorists.

Iranian-backed forces situated in the nearby area of Souaniye failed to send reinforcements to Khunayfis due to several ambushes which were set by ISIS cells on the road leading to the town.

Three fighters of Iranian-backed forces were killed and at least four others were wounded as a result of the attack. The wounded were reportedly transported to Palmyra Military Hospital.

The attack was likely launched from the Homs desert, ISIS main stronghold in central Syria. The region lays between eastern Homs and western Deir Ezzor. Hundreds of terrorists are reportedly taking shelter there.

ISIS cells carried out dozens of attacks in the Hama-Aleppo-Raqqa triangle and western Deir Ezzor during the last few months. Syrian government forces and the Russian Aerospace Forces responded with force. As a result, the terrorist group is now attempting to expand in southern Homs.

“acording to Istanbul base TV”…usually pro oposition sources SOHR, IStambul TV, Syria livemap..etc…spread fake news or exagerate and inflate Syrian losses.

Servet Köseoğlu

sure, every news against resistance is lie,fake in your dimension besides ı said any militia so nothing particular with İran.

Rhodium 10

First of all..Syrian phosphate mines in Homs have been sold to a Russian company and are protected by Russian PMC and NDF forces…therefore Iraqi PMU are not deployed there! that forces are deployed along Syria/ Iraq border and others in south Aleppo!

Servet Köseoğlu

ı didnt say news is true/false,thats another case but your funny efforts of discrediting every news (like maniac comments of n/k war) is better than hbo serials.

Rhodium 10

I said during NK war that AZ army also was suffering many casualties…and when the war was over everybody thought that 300 Az soldiers have been killed…but AZ military sources told that 2893 were killed which is a huge ammount to just take the south part after intensive artillery and drones support. the purpose of inflate Syrian casualties or spread fake attacks is to boost terrorist morale because they see Syrian maps and cannot change nothing!…are unable to retake an small village.

Servet Köseoğlu

bs land borders matters Syrian army only controls %20 of its borders.

Rhodium 10

Syria has the control of the entire lebanon, Jordan, Israel border ( only dont have control of Al Tanf area) and Iraq border from Al Tanf to east Eufrates…also dont have the control of the Turkish border….but there Syrian / Russian are troops close to them ( From Aleppo to Hasaka). we are not in 2015 where SAA was a collapse army…..

Servet Köseoğlu

?

Cromwell

I said right from the start that turkish border should have been bombed 24/7 as far as i know its still fucking open

occupybacon

If Syria and Russia control Lebanon how come Israeli warplanes are always in Lebanon’s sky?

Alejandro Bonifacio

orography is the answer ?

Supreme Blyat

Orography meaning mountain formation, yes? Why can’t Sukhoi deal with that?

Jens Holm

All that is highly incorrect.

Jens Holm

It can be like that, but happenings in Syria aree not new and we often know the liability.

One good example in numbers was SANA told about 2.000 from ISIS took Palmyra the last time they did. Everybody else said 500 did it.

They also had a long list of total stupidities made by the armed forces and the seond class milisia there.

It even started with all knew sandstorm would arrive. Even so there were no extra guards. I even had fanatics here telling those i Palmyra had got russian infrared visuals, but they forgot those dont work at all in sandstorms.

And what do You know??? You assume a lot. I can assume as well. To me phospate is fertilizer but for ammo as well. So what did those ISIS ones stop or interrrupt if it was an arttack for real?

Rhodium 10

Iraqi PMU, IRGC and Hezbollah have defeated ISIS in Iraq and Syria..they have taken lands from Deir Ezzor to Al Bukamal…they defeated ISIS in Ninive and Saladin province!..this is the problem for US coalition, Turkey, Saudis and Israel…that Shia troops deployed in Syria because they know that SAA despite Russian air support is not enough to defeat terrorist..and the main goal of USA, Israel, Turkey and Saudi Arabia is the same as ISIS has!..it is to defeat Assad Government and to divide Syria!

Jens Holm

Very much of that is highly incorrect.

Even a 20 times erased and then regained memorystick remembers more then You and dont bias it as well.

Whats Your kind of conclusions??? USA didnt bombarde Mosul and none civilians died. And Maliki did – with his bare hands:)

ISIS left Raqqa themself too. They were afraid and converted to SDF :)

No wonder my wish is a wall around all of You.

Jens Holm

We will see.

Jens Holm

Its sometimes like that. I need more detailed confirmation too.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Syria_TV_(Turkey)

Jens Holm

Thats right. Even russians are not able to establish such a communicative system there – too.

Cromwell

This has the smack of a western Special forces op.

Jens Holm

Not at all. It has a smack of usual incompetence by Assads and Iranians.

Jens Holm

Well organized plan by ISIS – unfortunatly.

PZIVJ

ISIS is supported out of the Al Tanf area.
Surprised that you can not admit this fact. :/

Jens Holm

I have not seen a single proof for that. If any others then americans and maybee britts are there its the very few FSA leftovers.

You are like most muslims. They pray and say every day “It is written”, but actually they are told whats written and obey any command even from illiterate Mullahs and Imams making You to their own wishes.

Thats why You only can look back when You reform:(
