The al-Quds Brigade has deployed additional reinforcements in Syria’s central region, Syrian sources reported on July 17.
The Palestinian group has been combating ISIS cells in the central region for more than two years now. Russia is reportedly the main backer of the group, which operates side by side with Syrian government forces.
The al-Quds Brigade took part in all recent operations against ISIS cells in the region. The group sustained some heavy losses on the hands of the terrorist group.

ISIS cells are still attempting to expand their control in central Syria. The terrorists launch attacks in eastern Homs, eastern Hama, southern Aleppo, southern Raqqa and western Deir Ezzor on regular bases.
Early on July 13, three Syrian service members were killed and five others were wounded when ISIS cells attacked their positions in the outskirts of the town of al-Resafa in the southern countryside of Raqqa.
Syrian government forces and their allies have been making immense effort to end ISIS insurgency in the central region. Nevertheless, much more time will be needed to achieve this goal.
