Confirmed: Syrian Army, allies drive back huge ISIS offensive in east Syria
BEIRUT, LEBANON (4:07 P.M.) – After two days of high-pitched engagements across Syria’s eastern province of Deir Ezzor, the Syrian Army and allied paramilitary groups have officially driven back the most powerful Islamic State offensive of 2018 to be directed against pro-government forces.
During the battle that was, Islamic State militants attacked Syrian pro-government forces at the T-2 military airbase as well as the Euphrates cities of Al-Mayadeen and Abu Kamal.
The terrorist onslaught was intense and the Syrian Army had to call on airstrikes to beat off attacks which came at it and allied forces in waves (highly typical of ISIS).
Well over one hundred men from both government factions and ISIS are believed to have fallen in the clashes that took place across Deir Ezzor province; the battle at T-2 is said to have been the most brutal.
Islamic State forces launched their attack out of a large swath of uncleared desert countryside (technically besieged) in western Deir Ezzor province. The scale of the attack now raises questions as to how many jihadist militants may be present inside the area.
