ISIS Cells Stepped Up Operations In Central Syria, Attacked Army Supply Trucks

ISIS cells have attacked several trucks moving supplies and equipment for the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) and its allies in Syria’s central region.

The trucks were targeted by two separate attacks near the town of Uqayribat in the eastern countryside of Hama on June 15. According to ISIS news agency, Amaq, two trucks were destroyed in the first attack, while only one was destroyed in the second.

The terrorists used improvised explosive devices in both attacks. Amaq claimed that several Syrian service members were killed or wounded.

The attacks came as the SAA and its allies were stepping up their operations in the central Region. On June 15 and 16, Syrian and Russian warplanes carried out more than 130 airstrikes on ISIS hideouts in the region.

According to the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, the SAA pushed fresh reinforcements to the central region recently.

“Military reinforcements of regime forces arrived in the eastern countryside of Hama … they also opened a headquarters in Uqayribat … and strengthened their presence in the village of al-Hadaj … due to its proximity to the outskirts of al-Salamiyah, and in order to secure a military corridor towards the desert and the Balas mountains,” the London-based monitoring group said in a report.

In the last two years, ISIS cells managed to expand their operations from the Homs desert to the Hama-Aleppo-Raqqa triangle and western Deir Ezzor.

Despite its limited success, the terrorist group is still facing much pressure from the SAA and its allies. SAA operations and Russian airstrikes inflicted heavy losses on the group’s cells in central Syria in the last few months.

SAA had a chance to wipe out ISIS a couple of years ago but focused on Idlib (and hit a brick wall there) instead. I know there was a debate among Damascus generals on that, and I guess the Idlib guys won (while their troops lost).
ISIS must be like cockroaches to stay so well hidden and inflict such high casualties. I do not see a solution since SAA is stretched so far and insists on poking bears in Idlib and Golan.

“a couple of years ago” Syria was run down by ISIS buddy. So be more clear pls, remember how much of Syria was take by ISIS? And now they can hide in the desert and with their brothers Turkic Wahhabi in N-Syria.

Taliban must be like cockroaches to stay so well hidden and inflict such high casualties before the US made deal with them, also it needs to be point out that the US wasn’t run down by the Taliban, and the US by far has a better military than Syria, YET they lost the war.

Also, you cheap ugly bitch, try harder to hide your ugly face.
” I do not see a solution since SAA is stretched so far and insists on poking bears in Idlib and Golan.”

As Russia and Syria kill all ISIS in central Syria over and over again, Israel and its USSA and Saudi slaves import new ones to replace them.

Watch it if you want. It is from VICE but Suroosh did it.

Once Iraq becomes safe Iraqi will help their Syrian brothers.


Israel has an interest in a big piece of Syria.. So Syria, Iran, and Russia are blocking/ delaying this active agenda. This means, the Israeli people from the US and Europe can not return, and so, they have to slow down the migrant stream.

Behold! the last gasps of ISIS in Syria.
They used to be formidable and a real threat. Now they are reduced to taking potshots at the SAA, in the desert, as they pass. Maybe they used too many fighters in suicide attacks and are running low?


inshallah they are totally eradicated even from the desert, and their suppliers/handlers

Icarus Tanović

Definitely decimated.


inshallah daesh gets totally wiped out, even from the desert, and their little enclave in al-tanf

Thats what the US supply convoy trucks in Iraq should look like . Wonder if US choppers could transport a few ISIS to do the job properly in Iraq or are the CIA choppers reserved only for ISIS leaders.

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
