The Islamic State (ISIs) renewed their assault in the Deir ez-Zor province, Saturday, targeting the Syrian Army’s positions near the 137th Artillery Brigade Base.
ISIS terrorists began the assault by storming the key hilltop of Tal Brouk, resulting in a series of intense firefights that lasted for most of the night.
Despite the intensity of their assault, the Islamic State failed to make any headway against the government forces near the 137th Artillery Brigade Base last night.
According to a field report from Deir ez-Zor, the Syrian Army managed to kill at least 17 Islamic State militants last night, while also destroying at least three armored vehicles.
Saturday night’s attack by the Islamic State in the Deir ez-Zor was the second assault the terrorist group launched this week.
