Russian Allies Are Already Wiping the Floor with ISIS
So far the earliest reports are coming out of the Iranian news website known as Farsnews. If their reports are anywhere near the truth, then the Syrian insurgency is on the ropes.
TEHRAN (FNA)- The Syrian army’s special forces attacked ISIL’s positions in Deir Ezzur overnight, and regained control of several terrorists’ checkpoints in an area of 130 kilometers.
The Syrian elite forces seized four concentration centers of the ISIL in a surprise attack near Deir Ezzur airport.
The ISIL terrorists have tried to take control of areas in Deir Ezzur province over the past month, but they have failed due to the resistance of the Syrian army and popular forces.
On Monday, the Syrian air force hit ISIL positions and movements in the Eastern countryside of Deir Ezzur.
Of course, it’s not all rosy news for the Syrian Army. In some cases, their victories have come at a heavy cost.
TEHRAN (FNA)- Military sources in Quneitra informed on Tuesday that the Syrian army and the Lebanese Hezbollah have taken a heavy toll from the terrorist groups and recaptured Tal-Ahmar hill in a major joint offensive in the Southwestern province.
The sources said that the Syrian soldiers stormed the positions of the militant groups in the nearby areas of Tal-Ahmar and retook full control over this strategic hilltop.
The sources further added that scores of the militant groups’ members were killed or wounded in the Tal-Ahmar liberation operation. Tal-Ahmar went under militants’ control only two days ago.
