BEIRUT, LEBANON (1:40 P.M.) – The ISIS terrorist group has released a 7-minute video showing their forces raiding an Iranian Revolutionary Guards Corps (IRGC) base in vast desert spaces of eastern Homs Governorate.

As can be seen in the video, the raid against the Iranian base was massive, involving at least 100 ISIS fighters mounted into makeshift armored personnel carriers (APC) and Toyota pickups.

In a fashion typical of most ISIS raids, the terrorist group’s militants unleashed a hail of tracer-heavy machine gun fire (of all calibers) and rocket launcher fire to stun Iranian-led forces (some of which were Iraqi paramilitaries). Moving right up to the earth-walls of the IRGC outpost and surrounding it, Islamic State fighters then proceeded to pick-off Iranian and Iraqi troops who are unable to flee the site.

Considering the sheer surprise and overwhelming force by which ISIS conducted the raid, it is clear that the Iranian-led forces within the base never really had any chance to defend their position or even withdraw from it.

It appears that the IRGC forward outpost was manned by between twelve to eighteen troops, all but one of which were killed outright. As shown in the video, the one Iranian soldier who survives the gunfight is snatched by the terrorist group, driven back to ISIS-held territory, decapitated and left to rot in public view.

This event took place on the Iraqi-Syrian border. The man who was captured in the video and later beheaded is Mohsen Hojjaji. Right now ISIS is suffering major setbacks. Their defensive lines are collapsing as they lose large swaths of territory, especially in Syria, where Syrian government forces are on the verge of surrounding ISIS’s last major strong hold in the country, Deir Ezzor. Unfortunately, in the fog of war, these things can sometimes happen, even to the prevailing side, especially when inexperience comes into play with over confidence and over expansion. The attack shown in the video ended up… Read more »

Bad people and bad warriors, fight like crazy dogs.
Iranians were not good at prep of their defense site though they had machinery for that. They had to dig circle tranches, put the dirt inside the circle in order to have the field around clear for far shooting. Then they could stop 100 dogs and save their lives for better future.

Total idiocy to have such outposts when the IS tactic of hit and runs is well known.

IRGC, or whatever they are called has shown poor discipline, no passion to survive, just appalling straight forward dim wits. What a shame for such a group to not perform guard duties as is the first thing they teach in the armed forces.
