BEIRUT, LEBANON (9:20 A.M.) – The Islamic State (ISIS/ISIL/IS/Daesh) continued their hit-and-run attacks this week, targeting Syrian Arab Army (SAA) checkpoint in the eastern countryside of the Deir Ezzor Governorate.
According to a report from Deir Ezzor, the Islamic State terrorist group ambushed the Syrian Army checkpoint in the Badiyah Al-Quriyah area, killing and wounding several soldiers in this part of eastern Syria on Wednesday.
The Islamic State militants then fled the site to an unknown location in eastern Syria, the report added.
The terrorist group continues to carry out these deadly attacks across central and eastern Syria, prompting the Syrian military to send reinforcements to these regions.
Despite the increased presence of Syrian troops in central and eastern Syria, the Islamic State has still managed to inflict heavy casualties within in the ranks of the military.
