ISIS Killed 17 Syrian Soldiers In Series Of Attacks In Eastern Homs: Monitoring Group

Illustrative image

ISIS cells killed 17 soldiers of the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) in a series of attacks in the eastern Homs countryside, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights (SOHR) claimed on June 19.

According to the monitoring group, most of the attacks took place near the villages of al-Mudir and al-Kawm. Both villages are located in the outskirt of the town of al-Sukhnah, which recently witnessed several attacks by the terrorist group.

“The number of the organization’s [ISIS] fighters who were killed during the same clashes has risen to 6,” the SOHR’s report reads.

These attacks were apparently launched from the Homs desert, where hundreds of ISIS fighters and commanders were reportedly hiding. The vast desert lays between western Deir Ezzor and eastern Homs.

The terrorist group recently intensified its activities in eastern Homs in what appears to be an attempt to strength its influence in central Syria. Despite suffering from heavy loses, the army has prevented the group from achieving this goal, so far.

    • Toronto Tonto

      You must be referring to the terrorist Russian invaders in Ukraine ???? they are isis pals .

      • Mikronos

        The boneheads of Kyiv are the ones who shelter jihadis.

  • Rob

    This war would be not like US, NATO, Israel war in Afghanistan where Taliban defeated them by just using AK-47 rifles. This war would be for a brief period. Putin in SCO summit has said that I wanna see how these monkeys invade Iran.

    • Toronto Tonto

      Russia did not survive in Afghanistan , they really got there sorry azz kicked .

      • Rob

        Russia was legally invited by Afghan government because of terror government of Pakistan. As the Afghan government told to USSR that thanks now we can manage Afghan land ourself, so they left and next day the Dr. Najibullah was assassinated.

        But Americans are so dumb that they don’t want to step out of Afghanistan.
        The current leader of Pakistan Imran Khan is good and he want that US and NATO forces should withdraw and leave land to Afghani nation and government. For how long US and NATO forces are there in Afghanistan then there will be no peace in the region.

  • Nick Sobkowiak

    Assad should make a deal with Putin that allows Russia to test a few nukes in that desert area lol

    • frankly

      Getting comfortable with the idea of setting off nukes willy nilly is not gonna be a good idea long term.

  • Rhodium 10

    SOHR is not a reliable source….

    • frankly

      Oh they seem to very reliably crank out F.uk.us propaganda.

  • gustavo

    Where are the evidences of this ? Nowhere !!

  • AM Hants

    SOHR – really?

  • Joe Dickson

    According to the SOHR Putin’s airstrikes have killed more civilians than jihadis… I actually believe that with the poor intelligence and carpet bombing tactics. There is no way an effective air campaign would have them able to mount counter attacks that send the SAA running.

    • al quaida

      Carpet bombing?
      Is Russia using B-52’s?

      • Joe Dickson

        Anything using SVP-24 is required to carpet bomb the area to guarantee destruction of the target. The Syrians pepper the area with rockets. There is no target discretion, the goal is to flatten the town.

        • al quaida

          The SVP-25 has an accuracy of 3-5 meters.
          You
          Are
          Full
          Of
          Shit.

          • Joe Dickson

            Watch any drop of SVP-24, it requires 8 bombs to hit the target.

          • al quaida

            Lies, lies, lies.
            If the goal was to flatten the town, Russia would deploy heavy bombers.
            The Sukhoi’s provide precision air strikes in support of ground forces.
            Take your propaganda elsewhere.

          • Joe Dickson

            Look at the towns, they are nothing but rubble.

          • al quaida

            That’s what happens after years of brutal urban warfare.
            Artillery
            Mortars
            RPG’s
            Tanks
            SVBIED’s
            ATGM’s
            All capable of reducing towns to rubble.

          • Joe Dickson

            It has only been a month.

          • al quaida

            Since you were born?

          • Joe Dickson

            Since they started shelling the towns in the DMZ.
