Late on October 6, ISIS terrorists launched a large attack on the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) and pro-government forces in the eastern Hama countryside.
The London-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights (SOHR) said the terrorist group’s attack had targeted positions in the area of al-Fasdah as well as in the mountains of Tanahij and Tutian.
Heavy clashes broke out in eastern Hama as a result of the attack. However, ISIS terrorists were not able to advance in the region.
“Three Russian warplanes targeted the organization’s [ISIS] positions in the desert of Deir Ezzor at the time of the organization’s attack [in eastern Hama],” the SOHR said in its report.
ISIS stepped up its attacks on government forces in central Syria, especially in the Hama-Aleppo-Raqqa triangle, in the last few weeks.
According to the SOHR, 49 terrorist and 41 Syrian pro-government fighters were killed in clashes in the central region over the last week only.
Despite sustaining heavy losses, ISIS terrorists continue to escalate in the central region, which indicate that they are receiving some support. Some recent reports revealed that U.S.-backed fighters in the southeastern region of al-Tanaf are suppling the terrorists in exchange for money.
