BEIRUT, LEBANON (8:45 P.M.) – Several Syrian Arab Army (SAA) soldiers and National Defense Forces’ (NDF) personnel were killed on Sunday after unknown assailants attacked their positions in southeastern Deir Ezzor.

According to a military source in the Deir Ezzor Governorate, the unknown assailants attacked the Syrian Armed Forces inside the town of Sabikhan.

The source said the Syrian Army is currently investigating the attack; however, they believe it was either carried out by the Islamic State or residents of Deir Ezzor that oppose the military’s presence in the governorate.

In response to the attack, the Syrian Arab Army has sent reinforcements to the southeastern countryside of the Deir Ezzor to search for the assailants.

Recently, tensions have been running high in the governorate after a series of protests against the Syrian Army in the outskirts of Deir Ezzor city.

The residents reportedly called for the Syrian Army and their allies to leave the area in favor of the U.S.-backed Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF).

The reports forgot to tell in the protests around Salhiya, SAA killed three and wounded a dozen protestors after opening fire on them. So much for democracy. The protests seem to be ongoing. Source D24 on twitter.

Pro-Assad in Syria is the vast majority in the country, soon the little minority 15-20 % of the SDF – Turkish backed terrorists will be crushed.

Nothing to forget about. In Saihiya there were no protests but a terror attack on the SAA with fire arms to which the Syrian Army responded.

These are all US sponsored, funded and instigated attacks. There are no protests from the local population. Only masked mercenaries who are led by US/UK and co special forces.
