ISIS resurgence | New attack in Syrian desert leaves 25 regime soldiers and ISIS members dead

Syrian Observatory sources say that fierce clashes are underway between regime forces and ISIS, as a part of ISIS ongoing attacks on regime positions in the triangle of “Aleppo-Hama-Al-Raqqah”. The clashes, accompanied by exchange of fire between the two sides, coincide with Russian airstrikes in an attempt to repel a fierce ISIS attack.

 

SOHR activists have documented the killing of 11 regime soldiers and loyalists since yesterday, while 13 ISIS members were also killed in clashes and bombardment in the same period, amid confirmed reports about more casualties on both sides.

 

Since the 24th of March 2019, SOHR has documented the killing of at least 601 regime soldiers and loyalists of Syrian and non-Syrian nationalities, including at least two Russians, and 127 Iranian-backed militiamen of non-Syrian nationalities. All were killed in attacks, bombings and ambushes by the “Islamic State”, west of Euphrates in the deserts of Deir Ezzor, Homs, and Al-Suwaidaa.

 

Also four civilians working in gas fields, 11 shepherds and four other people were killed and documented by SOHR in the same period, from late March 2019 until today. They were killed in attacks by ISIS cells. While 256 ISIS members were also killed in attacks and bombardment in the same period.
