Syria, the Islamic State continues to attack the SAA in the Badia desert

The Islamic State continues to attack the SAA in the Badia desert. Attacks by former ISIS militiamen against soldiers in Raqqa, Homs and Deir Ezzor increase. Russia’s strikes don’t stop IS

The Islamic State militiamen continue to attack undisturbed the Syrian army (SAA) in the Badia desert, despite the constant combings in the area and Russian air raids to neutralize them. In the past hours, 15 soldiers have been killed in an ambush by ex-ISIS elements in al-Rasafa (Raqqa). The Moscow fighters took off to provide close air support (CAS) to troops in distress, carrying out over 20 strikes in the area, but the only result obtained was the escape of the jihadists. The day before, a commander of the Liwaa al-Quds and three members of his escort had died in the explosion of an IED, hidden by IS terrorists in the desert of Palmyra (Homs). The attacks on the SAA and its allies, however, have recently also increased in Deir Ezzor and have seen the fundamentalists become more and more aggressive and bold.
