On January 27, the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) eliminated another ISIS cell near the Homs-Deir Ezzor highway, known as the M20.

A military source told the Syrian Arab News Agency that the cell was responsible for several recent attacks on army personnel and civilians travelling between the towns of Kobajjep and al-Shoulah.

According to the source, eight ISIS members were killed in an ambush set by SAA troops. Two pick-up trucks armed with machine guns were also destroyed.

A day earlier, the army eliminated a cell of five ISIS terrorists which was also behind some of the recent attacks on the Homs-Deir Ezzor highway.

On December 30, at least 25 civilians and Syrian soldiers were killed when ISIS cells ambushed a bus near Kobajjep on the M20. On January 24, a similar attack by the terrorist group left three service members dead near al-Shoulah.

The M20 is now once again safe, according to the SAA. Army units and Russian forces have been working non-stop to push ISIS terrorists away from the highway for the last two weeks. Gunship helicopters were even brought in to secure the highway.

ISIS cells launch attacks on the M20 from their hideouts in the Homs desert. The terrorists reportedly receive support from US-backed fighters based in the southeastern area of al-Tanf.

Good job men, but nonetheless the pucker factor for driving the M20 is gonna remain high

You make a fair assessment, and that being the case, all the NATO troops in the Middle East should have the same fears.
Anywhere and everywhere :)

I saw something about how they rewrite and control wikipedia as it relates to them a while ago but this is much more informative..

So what the truck looks like swiss cheese.comment image

The point being the article said TWO trucks and bodies. Only one truck was shown in multiple pics and no bodies. So how truthful is the article. People scream about that London based one man band and question its truthfulness and the truth of the MSN. But it is OK acceptable to blindly accept articles we like are therefore True just because we like them. Maybe you enjoy living in the time of the roundheads.
