On May 23, the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) and Liwa al-Quds repelled a new ISIS attack on their positions west of the city of al-Mayadin in the southeastern Deir Ezzor countryside, according to the Syrian Arab News Agency (SANA).

Liwa al-Quds announced that is fighters had been able to track ISIS members in Faydat Bani Moynia area west of al-Mayadin and had killed at least eight of them.

ISIS carried out a similar attack on SAA positions east of the T-3 station on May 22, in which it killed over twenty soldiers of the SAA and captured thirteen others, according to Syrian pro-government sources. The ISIS-linked news agency Amaq also reported that ISIS fighters destroyed several battle tanks and vehicles of the SAA during the attack.

This new wave of attacks may force the SAA and its allies to resume their military operations against the besieged fighters of ISIS in the Homs desert between the governorates of Homs and Deir Ezzor. Syrian pro-government activists believe that at least 1,500 fighters and commanders of the terrorist group are currently besieged in the desert.

    The US, UK and French law is not applicable to the countries of Middle East.

    Except Israeli migrants and Kurds the Middle East all states have one culture, one language and one religion but still US, UK and France have divided them in several states because united Arab will be a great power against US and UK, which they don’t wanna see them.

    Very good time is coming for all Palestinians. There is no oppression for ever. The end of of Israel is near. Many Muslims nations have got sense and came out from the Israeli slavery but few left. They will also come out soon from the slavery of Israel then look how Israel is dismantling.

    • Morten Filipsen

      The muslims nations are under the slavery of Muhammed and sharia.
      How can any take your word serious on Israel, when you cant even see the elephant in the room, wich is islam??

      • Rob

        Islam is not an elephant moron but a complete law of life in this world. This law came to this world with the first man Adam that had stepped on earth.

        • Morten Filipsen

          thats what you have bin told and believe yes.
          But let me ask you something, was Muhammed a good man?

  • Rob

    US, UK, France and Israel have invaded Middle East for oil and gas. They think that they will steal this oil and gas and other minerals from Middle East countries and will sell to other countries to make cache. That time has gone that US, UK and France divide countries. Now this is time of US, UK and France to be divided.

    Eight more terrorists in hell… Bravo SAA!

  • You can call me Al

    Surround the area, bunk down and take them one by one….

    I don’t understand why the SAA is dumping ISIS jihadis from Al-Yarmouk into the desert near Suweida, where they can simply regroup and kill SAA soldiers like they did near the T-3 station. The “waterbed method” (pressing down on one spot simply replaces the problem to another spot) is not a real solution in the long term..

    • MichaelE

      No, it isn’t. But the method is avoiding civil victims and concentrating the enemy in mostly desert areas, where they may be eliminated later by a few big strikes. Using your “waterbed example”: Instead of puncturing a lot of small spots you finally have to remove only one big bubble.

    Goog job SAA, congratulation. Keep being alert about sudden ISIS attack, for sure, more attacks are expected. I think, it is time to get rid of this ISIS pocket, and with the help of Russia aerospace force, this can be done very fast.
