SYRIAN WAR REPORT – APR. 29, 2019: RUSSIAN, SYRIAN FORCES RAIN HELL ON IDLIB MILITANTS

ISIS and al-Qaeda have used the recent break in counter-terrorist operations across Syria to re-group and expand their activity.

Over the past two weeks, ISIS cells operating in the Homs-Deir Ezzor desert carried out several successful attacks on positions and convoys of the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) and its allies. At least two dozens of pro-government fighters were killed and several vehicles were eliminated or captured by ISIS terrorists. The ISIS linked news agency Amaq released a series of photos showcasing the terrorist group’s successes in the area.

The expanded ISIS activity in the Homs-Deir Ezzor desert has recently become a significant issue for pro-government forces. So far, the SAA and its allies have not employed comprehensive measures to get rid of ISIS cells in the desert. If the situation remains same, ISIS will continue attacks on SAA positions and convoys and may even expand its influence in this part of Syria further.

ISIS cells continued planting IEDs and conducting ambushes on the eastern bank of the Euphrates. For example, on April 27, a car bomb exploded near barracks of the Syrian Democratic Forces in the city of Raqqah.
