ISIS Claims Killing Dozens Of Syrian Soldiers In New Raqqa Ambush


ISIS Claims Killing Dozens Of Syrian Soldiers In New Raqqa Ambush

Illustrative image

ISIS claimed on January 22 that its fighters had killed dozens of Syrian service members in a new ambush in the southern Raqqa countryside.

The terrorist group’s news agency, Amaq, said in a press release that a convoy of the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) was ambushed by the group’s fighters near the town of Resafa. ISIS fighters attacked the convoy with several types of weapons, and targeted reinforcements with improvised-explosive devices (IEDs).

“The death toll from the ambush amounted to more than 20 Syrian army soldiers, including one officer. Four soldiers were also captured and others were injured,” Amaq quoted a source in the terrorist group as saying.

The source also claimed that ISIS fighters destroyed two vehicles and two 57 mm cannons in the ambush. A third vehicle and several weapons were allegedly captured by the terrorists.

Pro-government activists didn’t report any attack in the southern Raqqa countryside. No Syrian soldiers were reported as being killed in the region, either. This suggest that ISIS claims may be nothing but false news.

In the last few months, ISIS cells in central Syria, mainly in the Homs desert, increased their activities. The terrorists launched dozens of attacks on Syrian military positions in Homs, Deir Ezzor, Raqqa and even Aleppo.

    ISIS stands for Israeli Secret Inteligence Service.

    While the U.S. continues to occupy Iraq and Syria there will always be a base for ISIS to regroup and recruit from U.S. bases to again attack the nations of Syria and Iraq. U.S. bases in Syria like Al-Tanf are the actual HQ’s of ISIS, hence why Idlib needs to be finished with before the year is out in order to get rid of this Yankee Zionist scourge in eastern Syria.

    • Jens Holm

      We all know. Twin tower never was hit.

      Some Jews digged it deep at Al Tanf. ISIS lives there and makes a lot of babies. They even kidnap warwidows for it.

      For some years rhere also has been tunnel from Gonoco and Omar fields all the way to a secret bathtub having Netanyahu in it. He sells the oil to Assads for Golan as well as the Westbank refugee camps almost are empty.

      A great succes for happiness and understanding. Next might be Gaza.

  • Jackson Brown

    Israel supports terrorists in Iraq and Syria from the very begining.

    • Jens Holm

      Another Brownie from Mrs Brown.

  • Azriel Herskowitz

    This shows that the butcher regime cannot adequately fight ISIS and the US presence is necessary to protect from an ISIS resurgence.

    • Ridiculous… Why is it that ISIS seems to be presents mostly near US bases? ISIS leaders hide among western supported moderate terrorists. ISIS was present on Israeli border until eventual elimination by the Syrian army. Arguably, ISIS and other terrorists can not be defeated until US forces withdraw from the region.

      • Jens Holm

        Just as far out as Azriel Herskowitch. Are You twins ?

        The ISIS pocket along Golan and Lebanon was free protection by the Israeliens.

        • good american

          Why would the Israelis feel protected by having murdering jihadists on their borders?

    • Jens Holm

      No, it do not show that at all.

      • PZIVJ

        Do you really take the Jacob accounts seriously?
        He is only here to troll with lies and distortion of facts.

    • This shows you are a dumb shiteater as always Jacob, a complete failure even as a troll.

    • Luke Hemmming

      Butcher regime as in Israel?

  • Ed


    • Jens Holm

      Thats none of Your business.

      Are You paid or forced to read here?

      • Ed

        That’s completely irrelevant I come here for information and have done so for a while now. When that information happens to come from a very unreliable source such as a terrorist organisations very own media, it annoys the fuck out of me! SouthFront should know better. Unfortunately they have done this on a number of occasions now. All they are doing is playing into these jihadist cunts hands and giving them attention they so desperately crave.

        • PZIVJ

          Point taken ED.
          But article also states:
          “Pro-government activists didn’t report any attack in the southern Raqqa countryside. No Syrian soldiers were reported as being killed in the region, either. This suggest that ISIS claims may be nothing but false news.”

          • Ed

            Indeed. So then why report it in the first place?!! All SouthFront have to do is wait for official confirmation from a reliable source, and THEN publish the article!!

        • Lazy Gamer

          It is better to hear news from all sources. Southfront however clearly makes the distinction that this particular news comes from questionable sources. You can always go back to your full censorship done for you media.

    • Luke Hemmming

      So all of us can have a laugh at the desperation of ISIS to try and motivate it’s pack of useless human cannon fodder into believing that there is an inkling that they might actually be achieving something when in actual fact they are achieving nothing at all. They are fast running out of new recruits so they need to create this fake news to try and convince some 16 yr old bedroom COD players to use their video game playing skills and pick up a real gun and actually try to shoot a real human…for real.

  • Jens Holm

    This time I think its interesting information. 1) Assads dont dare to show that loss at all or 2) ISIS almost has no local contacts anymore.

    So, this happened just about an hour ago…

    Waking up the sleeping SAA cells ?

  • Iraq is OPEC’s 2nd-largest producer of oil;
    …oil revenues $112 billion in 2019. Iraq government and protesters are stupid fools for allowing their oil money of $112 billion to be deposited in our U.S. Federal Reserve bank so the U.S. can steal it, like placing sanctions against it.


    Abbas Kadhim, director of Iraq Initiative at the Atlantic Council, said:
    “The effectiveness of U.S. troops in Iraq has been reduced by their concerns over force protection. Nobody is in charge. It seems more or less the troops right now, from a functional perspective, are not going to be effective for a long time. All they care about right now is force protection. Their margin of freedom to move around is reduced, suspecting every Iraqi they meet.”

    Trump keeps escalating troops in the Middle East to start a war. Trump is mentally unhealthy and should be removed. Trump is delusional, and has “lost touch with reality”; he might have “dementia” (impaired reasoning / pathological lying – pseudologia fantastica). Trump’s impaired reasoning must be stopped from creating a war.


    More U.S. troops are being diagnosed with head trauma from the Iran air strikes. Why is the U.S. Pentagon keeping this information a secret? We want the names of the soldiers injured and their prognosis.

    Senators at impeachment trial are not allowed Coffee, No Cellphones, No Talking, No Disruption.
    Reminder –
    Only 63 million votes were cast for Trump out of America’s 250 million adults that can vote. GOP are dreaming if they think they can fool the people twice.

    As of January 20, 2020, there are 1,016 candidates campaigning for the 2020 U.S. presidential election.

    ??? – The Syrian government and the Syrian Democratic Forces may meet in the coming days to resume their peace talks and find a solution that leads to a political settlement. – ??? – IF THEY DON’T, THEY CAN EXPECT TO BE ARRESTED OR ELIMINATED.

    Syrian Armed Forces, Russia & the other Syria allies are doing an outstanding job liberating ALL Syria real estate of 185,180 sq km (45,758,974.5 acres) expeditiously.

    Our U.S troops and coalition troops should not be in Syria “fake guarding” Syrian oil to waste taxpayer monies. They are playing intimidation-menacing scams “fake guarding” those roads leading toward the oil region; just to see how much and how long they can play this thuggery out before they will be forced out via a violent spanking. Our troops must stop playing “PATTY-CAKE” with the Syrian Armed Forces, Russia & the other Syria allies in Syria’s oily sand.

    Marines playing “PATTY-CAKE”.

    More continued triumphs; I send more prayers to the Syrian Armed Forces, Russia & the other Syria allies.

    Dozens??? Since when did 20 equal to Dozens? A dozen is 12. 20 is 1 dozen + 8. Obviously mathematics was not their strength hence the only alternative their level of intelligence could handle is to pick up a gun, aim it and pull the trigger. Hardly rocket science but what better job are these shit-for-brains retarded mouth breathers capable of?

  • Mehmet Aslanak

    Brilliant fake news in order to keep oil stealers in Syria & Iraq. Well done to the communist guerilla (PYD/YPG/SDF/PKK/ALF/CIA/etc). They should have been nominated to the Oscars for those pictures.

  • World_Eye

    ISIS my ass, these are Saudi Wahhabi US funded terrorists, packing M16s . Plzzz. Fuck the Trump and Fuck the US.
