Within its continuous activity, ISIS keep on attacking the regime, Iranians, and their allies in the Syrian Desert

The clashes continue at a varying rate of violence between members of the “Islamic State” organization against the regime forces and militiamen loyal to them of Syrian and non-Syrian nationalities, in areas in the Syrian Desert, within the renewed attempts of the organization’s members to expand the enclave they control in the area in the deserts of Homs and Deir Ezzor, where the “Islamic State” organization seeks through its continuous attacks to expand its control in the northern desert of Palmyra, along with exhausting the regime, distract it and inflicting the greatest number of casualties, injuries and losses of equipment, and the continuous clashes are accompanied with exchange of targeting by shells and heavy machineguns, amid confirmed information about more casualties in the ranks of both parties.

The Syrian Observatory published yesterday, Tuesday, that reliable sources confirmed to the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights that the regime forces are continuing with their allies of Syrian and non-Syrian nationalities, to bring military reinforcements to the Syrian Desert, where the regime forces brought again tens of military vehicles carrying equipment, weapons and ammunition as well as hundreds of members of the regime forces and their allies of Syrian and non-Syrian nationalities, and the sources confirmed to the Syrian Observatory that the bringing of these reinforcements comes in an attempt by the regime forces to fortify their positions and strengthen their presence in the Syrian Desert, for fear of a mass offensive that may be carried out by the “Islamic State” organization against them in the deserts of Homs and Deir Ezzor, in an attempt to expand its control over the enclaves that are under its control, and to revive its areas of control on the Syrian territory, in the wake of the attacks which are carried out either by the regime forces and their allies, or by the Syria Democratic Forces and the International Coalition through its American, Italian, French and European forces, where the organization which is located in the triangle of Al-Sukhnah – Jabal Abu Rajeem – Al-Tibah in the west of Palmyra – Al-Sukhnah – Deir Ezzor Road, is seeking to expand its control even more amid successive preparations carried out by the organization to expand the scope of its attacks.

These fortifications by the regime forces and their allies to their positions in Homs Desert and other positions in the desert related to it, came after the first attack that was carried out by the organization hours after its departure from the south of Damascus and arrival in the Syrian Desert, on the 22nd of May 2018, where tens of members of the regime forces and armed militiamen loyal to them of Syrian, Arab and Asian nationalities were killed and injured at that time, where the Syrian Observatory has documented since that date and until today, the death of 246 members of the regime forces and the militiamen loyal to them of Syrian and non-Syrian nationalities, 2 of them were executed and 9 of them are of the Russian Forces, during clashes and confrontations accompanied by detonating members of the “Islamic State” organization for themselves using booby trapped vehicle and explosive belts in the clash sites, also the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights documented the death of 138 members of the organization in these clashes, which have been carried out out-of-a-sudden in the eastern countryside of Homs and Deir Ezzor since the 22nd of May 2018, the date of ISIS exit from the south of Damascus, until today, the 12th of June 2018.
