Government Forces Repel Large ISIS Attack In Deir Ezzor (Video, Photo)

The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) and National Defense Forces (NDF) have repelled a large ISIS attack on their positions in the Panorama, Hawaiqah and Rashidiya areas in Deir Ezzor city. ISIS fighters tried to exploit a sandstorm that hit Deir Ezzor city to attack the SAA.

Syrian and Russian Air Force warplanes targeted ISIS positions in the Syriatel Hill, the Panorama, the Al-Makabir, Al-Omal district, the Old Airport, Al-Hweika, Al-Rashidiya and the vicinity of the military airport.

According to local sources, three ISIS ammo depots exploded in Al-Khasarat district in Deir Ezzor, killing and injuring a number of ISIS fighters.

US-led coalition warplanes carried out 12 air strikes on ISIS positions in the Syrian town of Al-Bukamal. It is believed that the US may be planning to land US Special Operations Forces and forces of the Free Syrian Army (FSA) in the countryside of Deir Ezzor.

The possibility will grow as the SAA approaches the road to the Deir Ezzor city besieged by ISIS.

    May GOD cause every soldier, fighter and pilot who are illegally operating in Syria to be placed on a bed of sickness/affliction and cause the affliction to daily increase until they leave Syria. May GOD cause total malfunction and destruction of every plane, helicopter, vehicle and weapon of every group that is ILLEGALLY operating in Syria and may He do it quickly. In Jesus’ name, AMEN.

    “It is believed that the US may be planning to land US Special Operations Forces and forces of the Free Syrian Army (FSA) in the countryside of Deir Ezzor.”

    I will only believe the US forces are going to fight ISIS when we see a large pile of dead US soldiers.

    • Alex Black

      There is no such capacity or force.

      • PZIVJ

        Agree, The best way to support this operation would be from the large Al Assad airbase in Anbar province. Of course this is in the wrong country and Iraqi govt would never allow it, plus I doubt they allow FSA trash on their territory. So the plan is a non starter.

        • Brad Isherwood

          Russia could airlift Their special forces, SAA and Shia Militias into T2 Airport and have an operations base for South Deir Ezzor province .
          Helicopters make the best hunters on open Barrens like Deir Ezzor province.
          If US occupies T2 Airport and puts FSA in there…..then pulls another BS 50 klm exclusion zone
          It will be big trouble for Syria and allies.

          It’s always a risk to cut out something like this in war,…yet US did this with firebases
          In Vietnam which gave area artillery coverage.
          Russia is slowly winning what it can in Syria…..it could risk and trust it’s military technology to secure key logistic sites before the US does.

          • Ronald

            You got it , critical time now , Iran and Russia , start your copter motors , grab T3 , T2 , Deir Ezzor in 48 hrs , don’t be afraid of using helicopters .
            Lets win this war , No Fear , No Crying .

          • Brad Isherwood

            Finding info on Syria’s military Helicopter availability has been difficult.
            Russian military Helicopter availability to.
            I believe both have the special forces capable of taking T2 ….
            IMO….the low numeric of these air mobile forces is directly related to why
            ISUS and FSA move and consolidate with ease while SAA and Shia Militias are always
            Walking right into it like some Civil War movie with guys going up a hill vs Cannon with triple cannister.

            Have watched for years to see if doctrine would change. …
            The few videos online with follow up articles such as Southfront show that
            Air mobile operations are the way to kick the door in.

            Last fall , just before the first C/H , south west of Aleppo , Irans , Quds Force had taken “Khan Tuman” (mountain) , and were not backed up by the SAA , because of the truce . Lost that corps as they could not extract them .
            High value troops should have their own air support , thought at least the Iranians would learn from that .
            Also surprised the Russian’s are not using this war as an opportunity to experiment on helicopter improvements , kevlar body protection , etc.
            The air power advantage is under utilized to say the least .

            Syria provides an opportunity for IRGC to grow and refine these services.
            Eastern Syria….with IRGC firing from Iran and Iraq with missiles…using IRGC forward
            Air controllers and drones.

          • PZIVJ

            T2 is only a small airfield. Maybe good for Hellos and C130 at best.
            It would also require much logistics support over land or air.
            US/FSA claimed to be fighting ISUS, but never made a move on this position.

          • Brad Isherwood

            The US/Israhell – Saudi goal is Iran.
            The region in chaos game plan has succeeded…yet the possible Partition zones
            We’re not achieved…or were conceeded with future planning direction changes.
            Getting Assad out by military means is amended to future Political Soros
            Trickery to tumble an election. …or Assassinate.
            Having tensions turn against Shia Militias in Syria and Iraq will evolve into
            Something with the Al Qeada and ISIS label removed.
            The terror attack in Tehran was clear signal the conflict is going after Iran.
            I kid around with the FSA/ARVN comparison. ..yet it’s proven fact that the
            FSA is useless with little motivation.
            The US does not have a successful track record training up occupied nations
            Boots to become calibre soldiers.
            Some A Stan soldier blew away 3 US serviceman in Afghanistan the other day.

            Some of the Saudi/US corporate trained Takfiri sent into Syria were calibre,
            Yet some % are KIA,WIA or going to spend their money now.
            I’m thinking the Syrian war is heading towards a reset.

          • BlueInGreen

            Yes, exactly. You hit the nail on the head.

            Iran ever since Iran booted the US and co out of its country, Iran has been the target due to it’s truly sovereign status as a nation that decides its fate for itself.

            The Partitioning of Both Syria and Iraq into Shia, Sunni, Arab, Kurdish zones for the purpose of divide and conquer and the building of pipelines for oil and gas was disrupted by the Iranians (Bashar had said the Saudis that Syria planned on letting Iran make a pipeline and declined Saudis offer). That ISIS attack in Tehran was a bold statement but an ill thought out one. Iranians are now, more than ever, angry and out for revenge and will increase their operations in Syria and Iraq against the US/Israel/Saudi axis. They’ve already rounded many terrorist and Iran’s torture methods have proven very effective in getting information from suspects and low and behold a lot of them squeaked, giving Iran sensitive info on their hideouts which gave them more locations to weed out foreign funded terrorists.

            Just today Iranian security forces had destroyed a terrorist hideout in South Eastern Iran (1 car bomb 600 kg of explosives, 5 separate bombs, another 700 kg of explosives, 10,000 rounds of ammunition and various amount of weapons).

            The war in Syria will likely escalate from here on out and the next enemy for the Iran/Syria/Russia alliance is the Kurds back by the Saudis/Israel/USA. ISIS is almost done and another bigger and more deadlier war is just over. I guess its time for Iran/Russia to double down and bring in more troops as fast as possible.

            That land corridor that was recently established must remain open and must get bigger at all costs. Getting troops from friendly Shia and Iraqi militia is imperative and bringing in heavy Iranian field weapons will be instrumental in balancing the overall equation.

            Its all coming to a head, and the US doesn’t look like the savior its once was…

          • Brad Isherwood

            The US could have smashed the Iraqi PMU and the SAA if they wanted to do so
            Directly….
            Syria would be the Rand partition or something close to that.
            Instead…the conflict appears to have evolved to where Iran is getting its bridge to
            Lebanon…
            Which means the Future war is going to be from Israel to Iran.
            Granted….US has to stuff Saudi mercs and whoever else into a new Free Syrian ARVN
            Army…while getting Kurds to trouble Damascus.
            Iraq to…..reconsolidate the former Sunni Triangle Wahhabist kook world.
            It’s still there in Iraq…scattered now. ..as ISUS was the go to push.

            The US just spent millions of dollars to run several carrier battlegroups to Korea and rattle the war chains.
            Trump’s not calling the shots….deep state is,…and they are pure revenge/malice.

            I’m thinking the US will create events in the future both in Iraq and Syria whereby
            Jew Media will spin the event as headline. …. Iranian militias attack Syrians,attack Iraqis
            US calls UN session to mark Shia Militias as terrorists.
            Iran can do nothing. …they know this already…as the Terrorist card is already on the game table with their name on it.

            Down the road….will Iran hit Saudi and US military assets in the Gulf ??
            The conflicts in Iraq and Syria lead to the moment when the Gulf becomes real war zone.
            Everything goes to @t after that. ….
            Run on gas pumps and banks

          • Thegr8rambino

            Isn’t it so retarded how trump just sold fighter jets to Qatar, who he said was supporting terrorism, but wants nothing to do with Iran who he also said supports terrorism? Wtf is going on here? Lol

          • BlueInGreen

            Although easier said than done. It does sound like a good plan. Mounting an large air borne drop of paratroopers and equipment behind enemy lines landing right into bases around Deir Ezzor would be a good idea.

            I would like to see a large mechanized unit be formed and make a B line towards Deir Ezzor. Pushing through everything in it’s path. And when it gets to Deir Ezzor, its over just kill everything that isn’t a friendly and call it a day.

          • Brad Isherwood

            The large areas retaken in recent weeks shows the numbers of ISUS or FSA is low.
            This indicates the risk in forward operations would manageable with logistic support
            On the ready.
            Does Syria have a helicopter that can lift a small dozer to a site to build burms
            And clear areas ?
            ISUS Piled dirt and holders on Tarmacks taken from Syria.
            Syria’s plugging along….yet it’s like Dollar Store is their military supply.

          • goingbrokes

            Would be an audacious move from US, and they could pull it off in the beginning. But then what? US taking T2 would be a virtual open admission that they are in cahoots with ISUS because supplies could only come from IS held territory. We can discount airlifts, which would only work with air superiority and big political will, neither of which exist. And US SOFs are not about to start sacrificing for hare-brained schemes where they pick up the life-and-limb tab.
            If FSA tries to occupy it first it will turn into a suicide mission.
            Syrians and the PMU will probably drive there quite soon so an airborne operation is hardly necessary. I think it will be business as usual.

          • Brad Isherwood

            In the Future….the US will push FSA and Kurds against SAA and Shia Militias.
            Both have labeled Shia Militias as threat.
            US can fallback as ISUS gets ended in Iraq and Syria,…
            Restart the game from Jordan and US/Kurd land.
            Getting the Sunni to attack the Shia is Saudi agenda now that Trump gives them weapons and support for their war against Iran.
            ISUS can go away now with Sunni whatever new label taking the conflict to the next game turn.
            US probably wants the Al Qeada/ISIS label to disappear from media reality.
            So far…no one has taken the US to the Hague for supporting Al Qeada or ISIS.
            Candidly. …no one will…not even Russia,…Cuz they are playing the game too.

            Get T2 Airport before US does.
            Remove the 50 Klm exclusion zone gambit.
            If Helicopters is all that one can opp at T2. ..Excellent,…that’s the Hurt which
            Needs to roam the Barrens and lizard plink.
            Use Thermal imaging and hunt at night.
            ISUS has been fighting one directional contacts.
            They withdraw and only worry about being bombed from the air.
            If they are getting the chop from 360….even money they can’t hold.
            I understand Russia has limited numbers of attack Helicopters in Syria.
            And Syria has limited numbers after the attrition rate of the war.
            The Dollar store war. …

          • Solomon Krupacek

            yes, take t2 using paratroops is a must! and parallely attack from palmyra using 5 000 soldiers direction t2-abu kamal. according to syrian infos there are 50 000 troops prepared for offensive. it is impirtant to take the mostimportant checkpoints before americans. in direction abu-kamal is poor resistance. it is enough take abu kamal bay 3 thousand troops and later come the rest of army.

          • PZIVJ

            You may be lacking in military judgment. PMU and IRAQ have not taken AL Qaim yet. so the plan makes no sense at all. Deir Ezzor is the prize.
