Deir al-Zor - SMART

Islamic State (IS) attacks positions of the Syrian government forces and the Lebanese Hezbollah militia in the Albu Kamal city in Deir al-Zor, Eastern Syria, killing and wounding members of them.

The Lebanese Hezbollah militia is a sectarian militia classified as a terrorist group in a large number of Arab and Western countries and has been fighting alongside the Syrian government forces against peaceful movements since March 2013.

On Wednesday, local and militia sources of the National Defense told SMART that the IS attacked the Albu Kamal city from the east. IS temporarily seized parts of the al-Corniche and orchards areas near the Euphrates river in addition to the al-Katef area which is considered as the security box for the Hezbollah militia.

The local sources added that the clashes continued for hours, killing and wounding members of Syrian government forces and Hezbollah, the injured were transferred to hospitals in Deir al-Zor governorate. The sources were unable to accurately identify the number of dead and wounded among Syrian government forces and Hezbollah militia.

The sources noted that the number of dead and wounded of the Hezbollah militia exceeded the number of losses in the ranks of the Syrian government forces because the IS focused its attack on the al-Katef area which is the security box for the Hezbollah militia.

The sources said that the people of the Albu Kamal city watched three bodies of the IS fighters after the end of the clashes. The bodies were dumped near the area where the sewage is flowing in the Euphrates River. The sources could not know the exact losses among the IS members.

The clashes between the Syrian government forces, the Hezbollah militia and the IS  coincided with the IS mortar shelling the area of the security box, which is the Hezbollah militia headquarters.

On November 21, 2018, the Syrian government forces and the Hezbollah militia seized the Albu Kamal city after the withdrawal of the IS of it.
