The Syrian Army Launches a Counter-Offensive in Al-Sina’a

The Syrian Arab Army’s 104th Airborne Brigade of the Republican Guard has launched a counter-offensive in the Al-Sina’a (Industrial) Quarter of Deir Ezzor that is aimed at alleviating the pressure on the eastern part of the city. Over the last 48 hours, the 104th Brigade has killed at least 30 Islamic State of Iraq and Al-Sham (ISIS) fighters entrenched in the eastern part of Al-Sina’a Quarter, including many foreign militants.

In conjunction with their offensive in Al-Sina’a, the 104th Brigade also attacked a command-and-control center belonging to a Chechen field commander on the outskirts of this area. Yesterday, the ISIS field commander, Abu Hussein Al-Sheeshaani, was declared “martyred” by ISIS social media activists; his hideout was also destroyed during the SAA’s assault.
