This was the first large counter-attack of ISIS against the SDF since the group started its military operation in Deir Ezzor governorate. ISIS launched many hit-and-run attacks against the SDF in the  governorate, but it didn’t try to recapture any area it lost from the SDF before.

Meanwhile, Amaq released new photos of ISIS fighters in al-Shula village at the al-Sukhnah–Deir Ezzor Highway.

Moreover, ISIS fighters attacked a position of Liwa al-Quds around and Shula and killed at least 4 fighters of Liwa al-Quds in the attack.

While the photos confirm that the location of the attacks is in al-Shula village, the date of the attacks is not confirmed yet.
