On November 19, ISIS terrorist raided a position of the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) near the town of Dwrihem in Aleppo’s southern countryside.
ISIS news agency, Amaq, said the terrorists stormed the small position after killing three Syrian soldiers. The terrorists set the position on fire and burned a pick-up armed with a machine gun before retreating back to their hideouts.
“The Mujahedeen returned to their positions safe and sound,” Amaq said in a report released on November 21.
The attack was most likely launched from the Homs desert, which lays between western Deir Ezzor and eastern Homs. Hundreds of ISIS terrorists are taking shelter in the region.
The terrorists intensified their attacks in the eastern Hama and southern Raqqa over the last few weeks. Now they are apparently working to expand their operations to cover the southern and southeastern countryside of Aleppo.
A day earlier, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights reported that seven pro-government fighters went missing while moving from the town of Maskanah to Dayr Hafir in southeastern Aleppo. The fighters may have been attacked by ISIS terrorists.
ISIS has succeeded in moving the battlefield from the Homs desert to the Hama-Aleppo-Raqqa triangle. Meanwhile, the SAA and its allies are yet to take decisive action.
