(Deir Ezzor, Syria) – Heavily armed ISIS terrorists, operating with the support of US forces, attacked shepherds in the Al Shola area of Deir Ezzor governorate on Saturday night (at 10:30 pm), killing 4 and injuring 2.
The terrorists also burned the shepherds’ vehicles, mutilated the bodies of their victims, and looted some of their sheep after the rest. A group of National Defense Forces (NDF) rushed to the scene and engaged the terrorists, forcing them to retreat. Two NDF fighters were martyred and two others were injured in the clashes.
The Syrian news agency SANA confirmed the incident, citing a reporter in the area.
ISIS remnants have been reactivated in Syria’s open desert since their defeat at the hands of the Syrian Arab Army and its allies. The US military hastily intervened to airlift ISIS commanders out of the area and has since been providing support to the terrorists.
ISIS remnants have been reactivated in Syria’s open desert after their defeat at the hands of the Syrian Arab Army and its allies before the US Army hastily intervened to airlift its commanders and eliminated low-level members of ISIS (ISIL – Daesh), especially in the Baghuz area, the last stronghold of ISIS in Syria.
The US has dishonestly claimed credit for defeating ISIS in Syria, but its troops have in fact been protecting ISIS commanders and providing them with resources, periodically, moving them to rehab spas and breeding camps run by their other poxy, the Kurdish SDF separatist terrorists.
Al Shola (Ash Shola) is a small village of scattered farms in Syria’s open desert, 30 kilometers to the southwest of the city of Deir Ezzor at the crossroads of the Salamiyah – Deir Ezzor highway and Tadmor (Palmyra) – Deir Ezzor highway.
The attacks on the shepherds are a reminder of the ongoing threat posed by ISIS and their ilk, and their US and other sponsors in Syria.
The US must end its illegal and criminal presence in Syria and the support for all terrorist groups in the country and US officials better address the mounting disasters in their own country before ruining the countries of others.
