A least 17 pro-government fighters were killed when ISIS cells ambushed their convoy in the eastern Homs countryside on October 8.

According to ISIS news agency, Amaq, the ambush took place north of the key town of al-Sukhnah. The terrorist group’s fighters targeted the convoy with an improvised explosive device (IED) then attacked it with machine guns and other light weapons.

“As a result of the ambush and the IED explosion, at least 17 soldiers and fighters of the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) and its loyalist militias were killed, 7 vehicles were damaged and 3 others were captured by the fighters of the Islamic State [ISIS],” Amaq quoted a source in ISIS as saying.

Pro-government sources acknowledged all the losses. According to the sources, ten of the casualties were fighters of the National Defense Forces (NDF) and the rest were personnel of Liwa al-Quds.

ISIS terrorists likely came from the Homs desert, which is located south of al-Sukhnah. Hundreds of the terrorist group’s personnel are reportedly hiding in the region.

In the last few months, ISIS stepped up its attacks in eastern Homs and western Deir Ezzor in what appears to be an attempt to expand its influence in central Syria.

    Assad with Putin’s help needs to nuc that desert and finish them isis-alqaeda-turkish rats that are hiding there.

  • Ed

    And how many Daesh soldiers were killed? Oh of course, none as always. I keep forgetting that these guys are totally indestructible!

    • Jens Holm

      Assads has told the many dead are true. If thre were any or many enemies dead, they would have given the number.

      But You are right. We often need to see casualties from both sides.

      • Rhodium 10

        I only see one captured and one truck burning..nothing else!..also I dont see any official sources confirming the number of death!

        • AM Hants

          ISIS news agency – which explains a lot. Now who would believe them?

          • Ed

            SouthFront obviously (for some reason)! But then this is how it always works. Daesh publish a claim on Amaq. It’s then spread by numerous media/twitter outlets giving Daesh all the free publicity they crave. It doesn’t matter if the claim is actually bullshit, they have got their recognition and publicity which is all that matters!

          • AM Hants

            So true and that is how they made their reputation. Pure media BS.

      It’s irritating – it seems the SAA and “good guys” are just not very efficient killers. And too often they take prisoners and then release them, and they have also, several times, bused terrorists/militants to Idlib. You can’t win if you are a big softie. The forces destroying Syria will use any weakness or softness to their advantage.

  • Iranian Falcon

    Good, when you deny YPG’s help you will get isis-turkish wrath. This is just start you will see how greater alqaeda and isis will grow if YPG/Kurds be defeated in an unbalanced battle.

  • Andrei

    Good
    I will love to catch 1 of ISIS members
    I will literally skin them alive
    And send pieces to their families home and brothers

    • jj

      Many of their families (wives and children) are with the Kurds and gradually being sent back to the parents’ home countries.

    ISIS my arse

  • Hist 83

    Those ISIS savages need to be finished off, when will the SAA move on Homs.

  • goingbrokes

    There is no Islamic State any longer, there are just bands of fighters under US or Mossad control who conduct ambush campaigns and engage in wanton cruelty and violence because they are psychotic. In their brain-washed delusions they think they are fighting a cause. There is none.

      No such a thing. as Isis. only Yankees Israeli gang
