ISIS Cells Killed, Burned 7 Pro-Government Fighters In New Deir Ezzor Attack

Early on March 12, ISIS cells raided a post of Iranian-backed forces in southern Deir Ezzor, according to the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights.

Seven fighters who were manning the post were all killed as a result of the attack. The post in question is located in the area of Talat al-Tamah near the town of al-Mayadin, one of the largest urban centers in southern Deir Ezzor.

“ISIS members set up fire to the post and burned down the bodies of the Iranian-backed militiamen, after seizing their weapons,” the London-based monitoring group said in its report.

The attack was likely launched from the Homs desert – the ISIS stronghold in central Syria. The region lays between eastern Homs and western Deir Ezzor.

ISIS cells have been attempting to expand their influence in the central region for a while now. The terrorists launched dozens of attacks against government forces in the Hama-Aleppo-Raqqa triangle as well as in western and southern Deir Ezzor over the last year.

The Syrian Arab Army and its allies are currently working to secure the Hama-Aleppo-Raqqa triangle. The western and southern region of Deir Ezzor will likely see similar efforts soon. Iranian forces are already gearing up.

How does ISIS get supplied if they live in the desert? Food, water,shelter,medicines and arms?

How come Russia ,Iran and Syria can’t see them or their tracks with Infra- red glasses -from a drone at night -and torch them all?
