BEIRUT, LEBANON (11:25 A.M.) – For the third time in the last two weeks, the Islamic State (ISIS/ISIL/IS/Daesh) has carried out a deadly ambush against the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) in eastern Syria.

According to a military source near the ancient city of Palmyra (Tadmur), the Islamic State ambushed a Syrian Arab Army unit in the small town of Al-Kawm, which is north of Al-Sukhnah.

The source said the Syrian military suffered more than ten casualties as a result of the Islamic State ambush.

During the attack, ISIS managed to capture 2 vehicles and a large amount of weapons before they retreated back toward the Syrian desert.

The Islamic State has recently increased their activity in the eastern part of Syria, using their sleeper cells to wreak havoc on both the Syrian Arab Army and Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF).

In response to these ambushes, the Syrian Arab Army has sent reinforcements to the Iraqi border in a bid to secure the international highway that goes through the cities of Albukamal and Al-Qa’im (Iraqi city).

A source from the Syrian Arab Army in Damascus said that they are working with the Iraqi authorities to reopen the international highway before the end of the month.

The sleeping SAA army must be wake up. Russia is really on the side of Turkey (NATO) and Israel/USA. However, we must thanks Russia to get rid of ISIS.

This has nothing to do with Jews. You as forced and amputated muslim did that.

They didnt create Islam. Ar least You ciuld trry to repair parts of Your religion in stead of blaming others. You seemes not being allowed by the high forces written as You wish.

In the killing statistics it semes ISIS and other Jihadists mainly are made to punish for something You did or do.

One might be naming others doing nothing again and again.

I see not a single Jew in Palmyra. Blame the Jews for what Jews did.
