On July 22, fighters of the ISIS-affiliated Khalid ibn al-Walid Army repelled an attack of the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) on their positions in the village of Jillen and the hills of Abu al-Jumu’a and Ashtrah in the western Daraa countryside, according to the ISIS-linked news agency Amaq.

The Khalid ibn al-Walid Army claimed that its fighters destroyed a battle tank and a shilka vehicle near Jillen and Abual-Jumu’a with anti-tank guided missiles (ATGMs) during the clashes. Furthermore, Amaq reported that a suicide vehicle-borne improvised explosive device (SVBIED) of the terrorist group targeted a gathering of SAA soldiers around Jillen.

Meanwhile, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights (SOHR) reported that warplanes of the Syrian Arab Air Force (SyAAF) and the Russian Aerospace Forces conducted more than 1,900 airstrikes on positions of the Khalid ibn al-Walid Army over the last three days. More than 50 fighters of the ISIS-affiliated group were killed in these airstrikes, according to the pro-opposition monitoring group.

A source in the Tiger Forces denied Amaq claims and told SouthFront that the SAA and its allies have not launched their main ground attack on the Khalid ibn al-Walid Army yet. Syrian pro-government sources had said that former fighters of the Free Syrian Army (FSA) will participate in the upcoming attack.

    Israel should take them (and probably will) – much better than Idlib :)!

  • Xanatos

    It takes 40 airstrikes to kill just one enemy? What are they dropping, rubber bombs?

    • PZIVJ

      1,900 airstrikes in 3 days ?!!!
      Surely this must be a typo. :)

      • Rafik Chauhan

        It may be 190 air strike it’s typing mistake From SF

  • Try not to cry while watching this: We are victims of terror not those who rejected their faith and were killed by us. Those who backstabbed thir own people are now celebrated as heroes. Those who spit on AIIah and his messenger are our role models. What a sad times. https://youtu.be/LtGG-ojvV5g

    So, there’s already fight around Jillen, on ISIS occupied territory. What isn’t confirmed it’s the almasdar news of yesterday that the SAA have already entered Jillen.

  • Smaug

    I’m sure that there have been some clashes, but I am also sure that ISIS leaders are lying to their own people so they’ll keep fighting instead of surrender.

  • Karim Al Ahamadi

    One can never believe a liar.

    ISIS propaganda, bullshit. ISIS are losers. That is rural war in which all ISIS will either send to hell or they will surrender to SAA as they see hundreds of barrel bombs dropping at one time on their heads from the sky.

    Wait, 1900 airstrikes? Something is wrong…

  • Luke Hemmming

    SOHR! is another propaganda outlet used by western intelligence to spread disinformation. As for ISIS repelling SAA attack? I’m calling that a HUGE pile of bovine fecal matter. Their noses are big enough as is but now they must be so big they can’t turn corners anymore. Maybe they tell these fairy tales to their children at night before th hey go to sleep. “The brave jihadist drove the bomb laden vehicle into a group of infidels and BOOM!! They destroyed all the infidels at once. And then the jihadist lived happily ever after in paradise with his 21 virgins. The end.” Ok go to sleep now my little jihad junior we have a big day tomorrow learning how to make IED’S and the best way to fuck goats.

    That's like 633 sorties a day. Even with two or three sorties per aircraft a day I don't think both the RuAF and SyAF have the number of ready available aircraft to maintain such an intensive campaign. Not unless you basically count every explosion as an airstrike.

    • Bill Wilson

      I think they’re counting every explosion as a strike. 1900 wouldn’t be that hard to achieve using cluster bombs. That’s what I’d be using against them.
