Syrian Army foils ISIL breakout attempt in east Sweida
[AlMasdar] The Islamic State
...formerly ISIS or ISIL, depending on your preference. Before that al-Qaeda in Iraq, as shaped by Abu Musab Zarqawi. They're very devout, committing every atrocity they can find in the Koran and inventing a few more. They fling Allah around with every other sentence, but to hear the pols talk they're not really Moslems....
(ISIS/ISIL/IS/Daesh) launched another large-scale assault in southern Syria this week in order to breakout of their east Sweida pocket.

ISIS began their offensive by storming the Syrian Arab Army’s positions at the Khirbat Abu Khashabeh axis, which is located in the al-Safa region.

a lie repeated often enough remains a lie...
despite their best efforts to breakout of this mountainous pocket, the Islamic State was eventually routed by the Syrian Arab Army troops in the al-Safa region.

According to a military source in Sweida city, the Syrian Arab Army managed to kill at least a half dozen of the Islamic State’s terrorists, while also destroying at least three of their cycle of violences during the battle.

The Islamic State has been repeatedly attempting to breakout of the al-Safa region in a bid to reach their allies in the Badiya al-Sham region of western Deir Ezzor.

The Syrian Arab Army has called on the Islamic State fighters to surrender their last positions; however, the terrorist group says they will only give up if they are given safe passage to the Deir Ezzor countryside.
