In eastern Ithryia, an ISIS VBIED targeted a gathering of SAA soldiers in Marina village. ISIS claimed that 18 Syrian soldiers were killed in the attack, and a tank was destroyed.

Hundreds of youths from Deir Ezzor have fled the ISIS obligatory recruitment to the Syrian Democratic Forces-held areas and to Idlib province, according to local sources. It’s believed that the final battle with ISIS will take place in the southern Deir Ezzor countryside, specifically between Al-Mayadeen and Al Bukamal cities, the last major ISIS strongholds in Syria.

    excellent news

  • Ma_Laoshi

    Fled to Idlib? That’s a helluva way away from Deir Ezzor province. Sounds like they want to flee to anywhere but government territory. Interesting–if this report can be believed, that is.

      Exactly , the only safe direction of fleeing ISIS , would be north into Kurdish territory , but Idlib , Al Qaeda territory ?

      • Terra Cotta Woolpuller

        These reports are getting really ridiculous when they state the fled in the opposite direction and far away from safety which makes that part incredulous and dibelievable since many have joined the tribals with the SAA fighting ISIS , lol.
