BEIRUT, LEBANON (5:20 P.M.) – For the third day in a row, the Islamic State (ISIS/ISIL/IS/Daesh) has attacked the Syrian Arab Army’s (SAA) positions inside the eastern region of the Homs Governorate.

According to reports from this front, the Islamic State forces attacked the Syrian Arab Army’s positions in the Badiya Al-Sukhnah area, killing a couple of soldiers and wounding several more.

The terrorist group claimed they captured two Syrian Arab Army soldiers during their attack on Tuesday.

Recently, the Islamic State has increased their attacks against the Syrian Army in eastern Homs, prompting the Syrian Arab Air Force (SyAAF) to once again launch air raids over this vast desert region.

However, despite the increase in air activity and the arrival of reinforcements, the Syrian military has been unable to fully secure this region. This has allowed the Islamic State to continue their terrorist attacks while evading capture.

Al-Tanf and Al-Zuqf are the sources of supply for these cave-dwellers.
Needs night-vision drones to search and destroy them.

Al-Tanf is 291km from As Sukhnah by road and you’d have to drive through Palmyra. As Sukhnah is between Palmyra and Deir-Ezzor… If you want to do supplies, you’d probably have to go MANY checkpoints! It makes no sense! Even with a 6×6 truck or tracks, you have no other mean to reach this area, there are mountains. The roaches have simply found caves and when things started to become hot, stockpiled ammos and hid to do stay-behind ops… If you believe US are pulling ISIS strings, you have it all wrong. Just search about where Zarqawi hid between when… Read more »
