BEIRUT, LEBANON (2:30 P.M.) – The Islamic State (ISIL) launched a new assault in the Deir Ezzor Governorate this weekend, targeting the Al-Baghiliyah District in the northern part of the provincial capital.

ISIL began the assault last night when their fighters stormed the Syrian Army’s positions in Al-Baghiliyah.

This assault would result in a series of intense firefights that would last for several hours in northern Deir Ezzor.

According to a military source in Deir Ezzor, the Syrian Arab Arab foiled the Islamic State’s assault, killing and wounding over 20 terrorists in the process.

Since losing Al-Sukhnah, the Islamic State has sent a large number of fighters to the Deir Ezzor Governoate to help reinforce their positions inside the province.
