Video- Syrian Army crushing ISIL’s Deir Ezzor offensive
The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) managed to inflict heavy damages on the self-proclaimed Islamic State (IS; formerly ISIS/ISIL) in the al-Hawiqah district of Deir ez-Zor on Saturday.
For nearly two days, the Islamic State forces attempted to infiltrate the Syrian Arab Army’s defenses at the Al-Hawiqah District; however, they were unable to make any headway, despite the intensity of their assault.
According to a military source in Damascus, the Islamic State forces suffered at least 25 casualties during their assault this weekend, including one of their field commanders that was not named in the report.
The video footage above shows the Syrian Arab Army soldiers beating back the Islamic State terrorists in order to restore the security around the northern sector of the Al-Hawiqah District.
