The National Defense Forces (NDF) announced on July 15 that its units had conducted a combing operation in the western Deir Ezzor countryside.

NDF units cleared a vast region between al-Taim oil fields and Qalaat Ruhibah in the western outskirts of the city of al-Mayadin.

During the operation, a number of hideouts of ISIS cells were uncovered. NDF units also recovered the body of a Syrian Arab Army service member, “Moataz Abdel-Awfi,” who was killed in the region a while back.

The operation in western Deir Ezzor coincided with intense clashes between the army and ISIS in the Homs desert. The clashes last until July 16, with Russian warplanes carrying out a series of airstrikes on ISIS’ hideouts in the region.

According to the UK-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, at least 44 Syrian service members and ISIS terrorists were killed. These claims are yet to be verified.

Hundreds of ISIS terrorists, including senior leaders, are reportedly taking shelter in the Homs desert. The region lays between western Deir Ezzor and eastern Homs, south of the M20 highway.

The Syrian military and its allies intensified their operations against ISIS terrorists around the Homs desert over the past few months. The terrorist group sustained serious losses. However, it is still active in the region.

    Daesh will continue existing until American terrorists are in West Asia. and they won’t leave the arms money and the oil and their dogs unless they’re forced to. if they don’t wanna walk back they’ll be carried back in boxes. it’s their choice.

    FOAB them.

    The Ziocorporate terrorist presence in al-Tanf will ensure ISIS cells in the Syrian desert remain well manned and well armed. The USrael air force is also used to support ISlamists, the US Zioterrorists said it was their mission to make Syria a quagmire for Russia, so the situation can’t be expected to improve a lot if appeasement remains the only strategy to deal with the US.

      Yeah bitch, better get used to that. Syria won’t have peace as long as Iran is there, enter that into your head.

      • shylockracy

        Get used to Iranians in Syria and quit your bitching about it, one hit on Dimona and the whole Rothschild neocolony is gone from the map, you invading scum need to learn about peace at last.

          Anyone brave enough to shoot at Dimona should also be brave enough to face the consequences.

          Not when it affects our national security, you baboon.

      What needs to happen is local resistance needs to go on a IED campaign and hit the supply lines of those bases,they will soon leave once the body bags start mounting up.

  • Peter Jennings

    These terrorists are to-ing and fro-ing all the time. Patrols need to go on for the forseeable future until they have no place left to hide and can no longer be supplied by the US.
    The caliphate is done. The terrorists are done, to the point that local armed militias are doing the job of forcing them from their rat holes.

    C’est la vie.
