BEIRUT, LEBANON (3:15 P.M.) – The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) reportedly killed seven members of the Islamic State (ISIS/ISIL/IS/Daesh) that were attempting to flee their Euphrates bastion this morning.
According to a military communique, the Syrian Arab Army observed seven armed Islamic State fighters attempting to escape the Baghouz camp via the Euphrates River this morning.
Following their attempt to cross the Euphrates, the Islamic State fighters found themselves facing heavy gunfire by the Syrian Arab Army troops that were positioned on the western bank of the river.
The Syrian Arab Army has been closely monitoring the ongoing battle to eliminate the Islamic State from the eastern region of the Euphrates River Valley.
ISIS has repeatedly wrecked havoc on the Syrian Arab Army’s defenses from Baghouz Fouqani in the past, as the terrorist group often targets the key border city of Albukamal.
