The US-led “international coalition” warplanes have carried out an aggression on some of the Syrian Arab Army’s positions in the south-eastern countryside of Deir Ezzor on Thursday at dawn.
“Some of our military positions between al-Bukamal and Hmeimea were hit this morning in an aggression by “American coalition” warplanes,” a Syrian military source said, according to SANA news agency.
Only material damage was caused, the source said, stressing that the attack “comes in the framework of the coalition’s explicit support to the terrorist organizations and uncovers its fake claims about fighting terrorism.”
The aggression came less than 24 hours after the Syrian army and the allied forces thwarted a terrorist attack by ISIL Takfiris on a number of military points in al-Mayadeen Badiya (Desert) in the countryside of Deir Ezzor;the army killed over 10 of the attacking terrorists, among them terrorists of foreign nationalities, injured scores others and destroyed a vehicle mounted by a heavy cannon.
US-Led Coalition Attacks Syrian Army Positions in Deir Ezzur to Support Daesh
TEHRAN (FNA)- The US-led coalition fighter jets attacked the Syrian army positions in Southeastern Deir Ezzur in blatant support for the ISIL terrorists operating in the same region.
The Arabic-language website of SANA news agency quoted the sources as saying that the US warplanes have bombed a number of the Syrian army positions between Albu Kamal and Hamimeh.
Other reports also said that the US-led coalition has pounded 2 positions of the army in Syria’s Badiyeh (desert) region near the T2 station.
They added that the airstrikes were staged as the ISIL terrorists are recruiting their forces, noting that the attacks inflicted damage on a number of structures.
The airstrikes were launched in less than 24 hours after the army units repelled the ISIL terrorists’ offensives on several military points in Badiyeh al-Mayadeen in Deir Ezzur, killing several militants, including foreign terrorists, and wounding a number of others.
In a relevant development on Wednesday, the Syrian army troops engaged in fierce clashes with the ISIL in a desert-like region between Western Deir Ezzur and Eastern Homs and fended off terrorists’ heavy offensive, killing or wounding a large number of the gunmen.
The army men exchanged fire with ISIL after the terrorists tired to break through the government forces’ positions in Badiyeh near the town of al-Mayadeen and another Badiyeh near the villages in the Northern countryside of the town of Albu Kamal in Southeastern Deir Ezzur near the border with Iraq, and managed to repel the terrorists’ heavy offensives.
Terrorists suffered tens of casualties in the failed attacks.
In the meantime, other units of the army clashed with the ISIL near an army positions near Oweiraz Dam Southeast of T3 Station in Southeastern Badiyeh of Homs, repelling the terrorists’ attack after killing and injuring a large number of them.
The ISIL further retreated from the battlefield to evade more losses.
