AlMasdarNews reports: The Syrian Arab Army’s 137th Artillery Brigade of the 17th Reserve Division struck back against the Islamic State of Iraq and Al-Sham (ISIS) in Deir Ezzor City on Sunday after repelling the latter’s offensive this past week.
The Syrian Arab Army’s 137th Brigade began the day by destroying the Islamic State’s main ammunition depot in the Panorama region of southwest Deir Ezzor, using powerful guided missiles to damage the terrorist group’s installation.
Following the destruction of the Islamic State’s ammunition depot, another battalion from the 137th Brigade dug two tunnels under the terrorist controlled part of the Industrial District.
These tunnels were filled with explosives that were later detonated on Sunday afternoon, killing a large number of Islamic State terrorists in the process, while also destroying the latter’s headquarters.
Some estimates from the Syrian Arab Army in Deir Ezzor claim that as many as 20 Islamic State terrorists were killed by these tunnel bombs.
