BEIRUT, LEBANON (1:45 P.M.) – The Islamic State (ISIS/ISIL/IS/Daesh) launched several attacks against the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) this weekend, targeting their positions inside the Homs and Deir Ezzor governorates.

ISIS began their attacks on Saturday by striking a Syrian Arab Army post in the Al-Sawanah area near the phophate mines. According to a military source in this region of Homs, the Syrian Arab Army suffered four casualties before the ISIS terrorists retreated to an unknown location.

Following this attack, the Islamic State stormed the Syrian Arab Army’s positions near the Deir Ezzor Governorate town of Mohassan. Fierce firefights would break out in the desert area to the west of Mohassan; this resulted in a number of casualties for both parties.

The Islamic State’s latest string of attacks have targeted several areas that were poorly protected by the Syrian Armed Forces. In particular, the Islamic State has rarely attacked the Al-Sawanah area, which is why this latest assault caught the Syrian Army off guard.

Despite U.S. President Donald Trump’s declaration regarding the Islamic State’s alleged defeat in Syria and Iraq, the terrorist group continues to wreak havoc inside of Syrian government and SDF-held territories around central, northern, and eastern Syria.

There is a difference between IS activities east and west of the Euphrates.

West of the Euphrates they control areas and have cohesive forces that are able to carry out larger scala attacks. East of the Euphrates they only have sleeper cells and can only carry out bomb attacks, assassinations.

West of the Euphrates they are left alone and can expand. East of the Euphrates special forces are hunting for them, arresting and or killing many dozens.
