ISIS Fighters Attack Syrian Army Positions On Western Bank Of Euphrates River

On September 6, ISIS fighters attacked several positions of the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) and its allies around the villages of al-Salihiyah and Mayizilah on the western bank of the Euphrates River, in the southern Deir Ezzor countryside, according to the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights (SOHR).

The UK-based monitoring group said that several ISIS members and Syrian soldiers were killed as a result of the attack. However, the terrorist organization failed to capture any position.

The attack was likely launched by the besieged fighters of ISIS in the Homs desert, which lays between the eastern Homs countryside and the western Deir Ezzor countryside. Local observers believe that more than 1,000 fighters and commanders of the terrorist group are currently hiding there.

A source in the SAA’s 11th Division told SouthFront that they are currently reinforcing their positions around the Homs desert. According to the source, ISIS fighters may launch a large attack in the upcoming few days to open a route for their comrades besieged by the US-led coalition on the eastern bank of the Euphrates River.

        • Merijn

Not really…HEY RUSSIA BOMB THE WESTERN INTELLIGENCE & THEIR HEADCHOPPING BUDDIES TO SMITHEREENS….SEND CLOSED COFFINS FILLED WITH MINCED MEAT BACK HOME….VICTORY IN IDLIB!!! AND THE REST OF SYRIA….POUND THEM HARD! THIS WORLD IS FILLED WITH TRAITORS ANYWAY….GET USED TO IT….

        • Saint Jimmy (Russian American)

          That’s hilarious. Probably not much left to protect.

    • Sinbad2

      It’s all about the British troops cornered in Idlib.
      It seems the SAS regiment has been gutted. If you lay down with terrorists, you get up with a Russian bullet in your head.

        Big boys’s games have big boys’s rules.

      • FlorianGeyer

        And when we consider that the regular army SAS is only numbered in hundreds plus a Reserve element ( latterly known as the Territorial Army of part time volunteers and ex regulars on the Reserve List ) , even a few score are a large % loss.

    On 5th, September, 2018 The United States Joint Chiefs of Staff Chairman General Joseph Dunford and Secretary Pompeo both went to Pakistan but there was no PM or foreign minister to receive them at the airport. Only the foreign office envoy was their to receive them both. The Pakistan PM Imran Khan told them that you have lost war in Afghanistan. We cannot help you sorry.

    • FlorianGeyer

      Three Cheers for Imran .

        He was well liked in Australia, when he captained the Pakistani cricket team.
        Always the gentleman, a good sport and intelligent.
        Good to see Pakistan has finally got a leader who works for Pakistan, and not the USA.

      • Rob

        I have mentioned 2 years ago that due to education and smart mobiles the structure of the world politics has changed tremendously. Nowadays everybody is doctor, engineer and journalist.

      • Rob

        I wish all leaders in the world should be like Imran Khan.

    • Assad must stay (gr8rambino)

      lmfao thats too funny

    • John Mason

      No kidding Rob? Best news I have heard for quite some time, only a lottery win would be better.

    • Tommy Jensen

      Pakistan´s Foreign Office envoy also followed Pompeo and Dunford back to the Airport and at the departure gate he gave them both a kick in their arses and said “these are on the house of Pakistan”.
      All after instructions from PM Imran Khan. After that, all the sheeple said that PM Imran Khan was the new savior. The sheeple said that because they were hoping.

    you know i freaken knew it!!i would of never allowed these isis commanders to escape u should of executed them instead of letting them flee in those caravans i was a witness too a few months ago they have regrouped i suggest next time Syria and Russia to not allow the commanders to escape

    • Bill Wilson

      No shit! I could see suckering in ISIS onto buses to avoid fighting them in a urban setting but figured that Assad was cut-throat enough to wipe them out while in transit. The Russians could’ve bombed the buses then blame it on the US, who would’ve denied it with nobody mentioning the incident again afterwards.

      • Promitheas Apollonious

        maybe you confuse Assad, with your kind?

    • Sinbad2

      Part of the reason they let the terrorists escape to Idlib, was so the Russian military police could arrest the British SAS troops who were embedded with ISIS. It seems some got through dressed as women, but Russia got most of them.
      Smarter people than you or I worked out the scheme, and unless you have experience in counter insurgency, maybe you should let the professionals handle it.

      • Promitheas Apollonious

        Plus is always better before you begin the final elimination to have all the targets in one place preferably with borders of the ones who create them so….. what you dont kill to be send back to the sender. In this case turkey.

        • FlorianGeyer

          Exactly and the Syrian and allies strategy was to preserve as much civilian infrastructure as possible without massive civilian casualties as is prevalent in any US Coalition of Terror campaign.

        • potcracker2588

          watch the PC now on RT by turks,irans,russians…….erdogan i quote” we will defend idlib”……told u so many times xxxx……another quote from erdogan during todays Pc ” Assad regime is a regime which commited massacre upon massacre, we will not allow this to happen in idlib”
          peace bro

          • Promitheas Apollonious

            link? erdogan …….. the whore who change her price according to the size. As I also said, we fast coming to the moment of truth where none of the players that caused this genocides and atrocities against humanity in not only syria but generally around the world, they are rapidly running faster than they anticipated from proxies to commit their crimes for them.

            This is what idlip war, means for the western stooges of NWO. Their masks are coming off and that is when the real war will begin. It is what russias policy and strategy is forcing on them now. russians are not afraid to fight against an enemy that it does not know where its ass from second base is.

            What they want is for UK/USrael to make the first move and they already have the answer. The war for the globalists is already lost globally. All is left now is to become also officially established globally. So this is the beginning of the end, for ME and the turn of europe to expiriense first hand what they promoted and still do to happen in ME.

            What goes around comes around and they are for a very big awakening.

          putin looks very pissed and even annoyed at turkey today at meeting in teheran….erdogan is looking like a small child..like begging for help to putin…..
          I was 100% right on my asertion of idlib and the consequences surrounding the invasion by turkey into syria….erogan/turkey MUST help those jihadi militants..its a MUST..for his own sake and his parties sake…they came (erdogan)akp into power wholly through islamist preachings…their entire political party program is a program of islamists..all the laws that were passed by his party were ALL islamist laws from headscarfe wearing in schools and universities(before forbidden now allowed) to the 100,000´s state workers be it in police or army or anywhere else which lost their job or/and went to jail for not beiing enough islamic.
          And as I mentioned before…the consequences of direct battle between SAA and turkisg armed forces(which are now on 100%) is that turkey is a fucking nato member, and maybe u folks here should ask yourselves the question…was eisenhower right when he said” nothing,zero happens in the political theatre of politics by coincidence”,, that this was the plan from DAY 1…..u dont have to be a brain surgeon to know what direction this moves us all to very close..correct??
          in article 5 nato ” is one member under attack, all other memebers MUST help” thats the green light that all have been waiting for…and its getting dam close in the coming 2-4 weeks…..
          It was clear at the PC today that erdogan was shitless scared…im not kidding…he looked like a 5year old child that knew it did something bad and was asking for help….putin to be exact…and putin looked very annoyed and pissed…..lavrov sitting to the right hand of putin was awesome…he was clearliy in charge of playing the “big russian bear”…he didnt talk but his facial expression was that of a bouncer…and while he had that face on he continusly ate nuts…could be a script from a hollywood movie…
          anyway..u might wanna check the video of tht PC on the net……and pray that erdogan fears ww3 more than his own future in turkey.
          peace love and harmony

  • David Parker

    “besieged by the US-led coalition”?
    US-led anything fighting against terrorists would be a whole new chapter in the US fight to turn Syria into another Iraq and Libya and Egypt.
