Amid media blackout, ISIS recovers and continues its attacks on the road of Tehran Beirut
Syrian Observatory for Human Rights ^ | 3 hours ago | SOHR

Posted on 04/01/2018 5:13:33 PM PDT by Texas Fossil

20 days of attacks leave about 200 dead of the regime forces (Syrian SAA) and their allies (Quds & Iranian Militias) in the capital Damascus and Deir Ezzor

Deir Ezzor Province, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights: the “Islamic State” organization continues its military operations west of Euphrates, targeting the regime forces and their allies, on the strategic road of Tehran – Beirut, amid a media blackout about these attacks which were started after the recovery of the “Islamic State” organization successively starting from the capital Damascus on the 13th of March 2018 until Deir Ezzor, until today the 1st of April 2018, where the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights monitored the continued attacks by the Organization against the regime forces and militiamen loyal to them of Syrian and non-Syrian nationalities, where the organization was able through its intensive targeting of regime forces’ locations in the Bokamal Desert in southeastern Deir Ezzor province; to inflict more human losses in the ranks of the regime forces and militiamen loyal to them, raising to 193 at least, the number of members of the regime and their allies who were killed during 20 days of clashes in al-Bokamal, the countryside of Deir Ezzor and south of the capital Damascus, also it rose to 64 at least, the number of members of the “Islamic State” organization who were killed in the same battles, since the recovery of the Organization in the 13th of March 2018, also tens of others of both parties were killed and the death toll is expected to rise because there are some people in critical situation.

The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights has been monitoring since the 13th of March 2018, the start of attacks by the “Islamic State” Organization, which were started by an attack in the capital Damascus, and enabled it to expand in al-Kadam neighbourhood in the southern part of the capital, followed by attacks targeted the 2nd Station, which was also controlled by the Organization south of al-Bokamal, and other attacks in Hmimeh area and al-Mayadin Desert, amid targeting sites of the regime forces and their allies west of Euphrates river in the eastern and southeastern countryside of Deir Ezzor, also these successive attacks have caused significant casualties in the ranks of members of the regime forces and militiamen loyal to them, and as well as the ranks of members of the “Islamic State” Organization.

This violent attack of ISIS comes weeks after the control of the organization declined in the eastern banks of the Eupbhrates River, within the towns of Abu Al-Hassan, al-Sha’afa, Al-Baghouz, Al-Bobdara, and its districts, following the entire end of its presence in the western banks of the Euphrates River, where the SDF managed to control most of the east of the Euphrates except for the aforementioned enclave, where reliable sources confirmed to the SOHR that the organization organized its ranks in the recent stage in order to attempt to expand the organization’s controlled areas at the expense of its rivals in its areas of presence, and the SOHR published few months ago, that although the presence of the organization in the west of the Euphrates River ended on the 6th of December 2017, groups of its fighters meant to confuse the regime and its allies, by carrying out infiltrations and surprising attacks, within Deir Ezzor desert and the vicinity of Hmimeh area in the far of the north-eastern countryside of Homs, in conjunction with the attacks on areas in the eastern desert of Al-Sukhnah and attacks in other areas near the presence of the members of the organization who carry out these attacks in order to emphasize the strength of the organization and express its ability to carry out attacks and initiate them, and to result in the fall of the largest possible number of human losses in the ranks of the regime forces and their allies of non-Syrian nationalities.

ISIS is not yet dead. Erdogan’s antics have not helped a bit.

Remember, Turkey used 3,000 of ISIS in the attack on Afrin (Efrin). Turkey is protecting some of the leadership. Plus al Qaeda and the Muslim Brotherhood terrorists.

All of ISIS’s links seem to go back to Turkey.

But the President said ISIS has been essentially eliminated. Is it so, or not??

Both things can be true at the same time.

Most of the strong ISIS action is around Damascus. The fighting has been very brutal on both sides.

There were a few pockets of ISIS on the border of Syria and Iraq that were still held by ISIS. That pressure was taken off when Erdogan attacked Efrin.

It is not over until the fat lady sings.

” ISIS will not be dead till radical, fundamentalist Islam is dead. “

Kinda correct; except that Islam IS radical, fundamentalist. It is in the Koran !

The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights “report” reads like a cheering section.

I would not hold my breath for this ever to happen, at least not until (i)slam is nothing more than a fond memory for a few diehards.

There is always money available for the furtherance of evil.

The U.S. Congress provides an obvious example.

I have some other maps that I downloaded, but don’t have the URL for them. Some of the ones I had URL for are no longer available.

I have a big library stored for various dates in battles.

Particular battle maps get dated very quickly.

The use of tablets to track forces is an amazing advance in this war. Accuracy is incredible. I suspect security is an issue, have not been involved in that.
